Storyline

Hurricane (Squadron 303) is the story of a group of brave Poles who fought in the skies over England in WW2, not just to keep Great Britain free from the Nazis, but also to keep alive the very idea of their own country, which had existed in its modern form for barely twenty years before it was crushed between the opposing jaws of Germany and Russia. Equipped with the almost-obsolete Hurricane and (with some initial reluctance) given RAF blue uniforms, while they fought, Poland lived.

Goofs

The squadron's first victory, while still in training, is a Dornier Kondor bomber (identifible by its twin motor and round cockpit with is front machine gun post). While it was first identified as such, it was later known it was a Messerschmitt Bf 110 when the remains of the plane were excavated in the 1980's. See more »

Good solid film
13 September 2018 | by Figgy66-915-598470See all my reviews

13 September 2018 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - Hurricane. A long overdue piece of film bringing not only the Hurricane to the forefront but also the part a great number of Polish pilots played in keeping the Germans out of England. Historically many pilots preferred the Hurricane to the Spitfire, with its better engines, providing superior speed and manoeuvrability and superior handling in the air, yet it's the Spitfire that people bring to mind first. It's refreshing to sit and watch a film about a couple of underdogs, the Hurricane and the Polish pilots who flew them. It is also refreshing to watch a film just about the day to day life, the triumphs and the tragedies felt by everyone involved during what must have been the most horrific times. There was no reference to D-Day, The Battle of Britain or any other specific events during the war, this film concentrated on individual battles between nationalities, sexes, ranks, and even friends. Films like this portraying squadrons of planes fighting it out in the skies over ordinary people's heads, whether in England, France or even Germany make me realise how lucky we are not to have lived through that. I don't know how our Grandparents survived. I must say it wasn't the best film of flying sequences I've ever seen but somehow it didn't matter, as I found myself willing all these young men to get home safe. Interesting to see Milo Gibson playing the Canadian Officer, looks just like his Dad but maybe a bit better looking.
