Lost in the dessert
29 September 2017 | by lc-661-372948See all my reviews

This movie appealed to me by the theme and period; Dessert, WW1, action and adventure. The story about the German fighter-pilot (ace) that crashed in the Egyptian dessert and the couple sent out to rescue him and his secret intelligence was interesting too. But I might have had too high expectations for this movie – because it was a big disappointment for several reasons: There is a strange Tarantino-feel to the title-texts, just like the music is completely out of place too being like something from a Western. Then all the characters was so cliché (German = evil, British = civilized, American = heroic and reckless), and at the same time all of them was kind of annoying. So the first 45 minutes carried by their dialog was a real bore. The camera-angles could have supported the drama – but instead often felt static and plain. Even the tones and colors was grey'ish instead of warm and saturated – which could have improved the pictures a lot. Then historically I guess many things can be wrong too – like if the airplane-types was used in Egypt etc. – but I can accept that. So many good ingredients was just wasted and yes – lost in the dessert. I give it a 4 for idea and the effort.
