Trivia

Perhaps it was done for a reason. But in the dogfight sequences there is no swastika visible on the tails of the German fighters. The normal Luftwaffe "livery" was the German cross on the wings and fuselage and the swastika on the tail. See more »

Goofs

On several occasions they use the American pronunciation LOO-tenant for lieutenant rather than the British LEFT-tenant. See more »

User Reviews

 
generally just bad
27 January 2014 | by mail-4017See all my reviews

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.
