A fitting tribute to the Many
28 February 2019 | by chrisbarker-19132See all my reviews

Being an avid enthusiast of all things WW2 and in particular the exploits of Bomber Command I was both keen and sceptical to see the film. Many films including blockbusters like Dunkirk have dissapointed me especially after so much hype. Lancaster Skies is different, having if you pardon the pun flown under the Rader for most part this small-incredibly small budget film (£80000) has excellent production values and tells the story of a single Bomber Command crew at the height of the war. In my opinion (and according to the post film Q&A's) the opinion of veterans it captures the mood of life and death on a Bomber base perfectly. I have no hesitation in recommend you see the film if like me you have a thirst for the genre. If your wanting a fast paced all action movie then perhaps its not for you, but for me its very well done and a credit to all involved in the project.
