Goofs

All the shirts in the RAF in World War 2, and in fact up until 1971 were 'Collar unattached' which means the collars were attached by front and back collar studs. It meant that having the top button and the tie down could never have happened as shown when they are relaxing. See more »

Alright actually
9 May 2019 | by johnsmattSee all my reviews

Lots of things can be said about this film. It was cheap, and it looks cheap, but it's actually an enjoyable effort.

Some of the interactions were stilted, and I would have preferred more of the film around the Lancaster, but on the whole not bad.

Performances were okay. Most of the acting was average. I wasn't a fan of the alcoholic lead, everything felt overacted as if he was trying too hard, but the tailgunner character was well done, as were the two northern crew members who didn't have enough time on screen for me.

Worth a rental, probably wouldn't buy.
