Goofs

When the Chinese pilot chases the Japanese Zero that had attacked the airfield, the Soviet made I-16 is shown holding its own in combat with the Zero, staying with the Zero as it climbs and accelerates, and maneuvering on an equal level. Only in somebody's wildest fantasies could this happen: the Zero outperformed the I-16 in every way, and the Japanese pilots were also far better trained. Zeros claimed almost 300 I-16s shot down over China, whereas no Zeros were lost in air combat. See more »

Worst writing I've ever seen!
3 November 2018 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

If there was a story here, it got shredded and pieced together randomly.

The camera shots are decent, but not sure if it was the crappy screenplay, terrible editing, or the director got bored mid-scene, as some scenes were out of nowhere and/or just ended abruptly or dragged on. A Chinese 5th grader could have written a better screenplay.

And that lame and loud continuous 1980's background music was so annoying and out of place. Credit does go to some great photography, sfx and visuals for the fighting scenes but that's about it.

I'm sure B-Willz and A-Brodz where shaking their heads when they saw the final cut, but I'm sure they got paid well just to be headlined in this film.

Maybe the 25 producers (including Mel Gobson??) should have spent more money in the production instead of paying for the ridiculous amount of fake reviews.

At best, this film is a 4/10 - only for the visuals, but I knocked off 2 points for the fake reviews... I can't stand it when producers do that. So 2/10 from me
