Office Earl Kirk, a young South African pilot, volunteers his services to the Royal Air Force, sacrificing his family, his future and himself in the fight against evil. Whilst in combat, surrounded by bombers and under relentless attack, Kirk must make the decision that could change his and his crew's life forever.

The RAF only used home-based Liberators as maritime patrol aircraft. They were employed as bombers in the Far East. See more »
The pilots mention trying to make it to Falaise which is in France, nowhere near their location in Germany. Allied troops didn't make it onto German soil until 1945 in the month of March. See more »
generally just bad
The cinematography at times verged on acceptable but the acting never even approached this level, not even close. I found it hard to empathise with any of the characters because I couldn't suspend the belief in the acting. It's hard to know if the writer, director or actors are to blame as one of the constant annoyances was a guaranteed WWII cliché of dialogue every minute or so that simply grated.
The accents were simply laughable and removed any sense of authenticity. As some of the other reviews have noted, the background sound design is obviously looped and this gets boring quickly.
The CGI was also basic, which in some cases can be charming, in this case however it just looked cheap.
I didn't finish watching this movie, I wouldn't recommend you start.
