Mission of Honor is the story of Hurricane Squadron 303, a group of brave pilots 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.
The air battle sequences were shot using a combination of replica cockpits, life-size replica Hurricane on gimbal, real Hurricane (one of only nine in the world) and visual effects. See more »
At about 1:28, the code letter "R" on Zumbach's Hurricane is loose at the edge, as it is a sticker and not painted on as it would be in real life. See more »
I "love" when experts review a movie - not
Watch this movie.
The total budget was likely what was spent just for catering a 'skyscraper' movie I wasted a few hours watching.
I AM an aficionado of WW2, I can spot mistakes. AND?
The story of these brave men is not well known - a pity. There were several groups of pilots from several occupied countries who made it to Britain and fought like lions. The poles, were brave - and nuts. Some of the crazy scenes - are true (not a spoiler).
The effects - yah, not up to Hollywood top CGI, but, enjoy a true story with good acting,
