...was terrible. I walked out halfway through. This is a rare thing for me to do.
The script was unbelievably cliched. The characters were all one-dimensional, and cardboard cutouts of characters you see in every war movie. Bad jokes and one-liners throughout. Even the music was lousy. It was produced by George Lucas but directed by a guy I've never heard of. I was there primarily for the air-to-air battle scenes, but they were not enough to salvage this film. I finally walked out at the scene where one of the pilots attempts to nonchalantly walk into the Officer's Club, and is told it was for white officers only. Wow, didn't see that one coming.
It's one redeeming feature is that several of the actors also starred in The Wire, my all time favorite TV series.
I can tell by the cheasie speach in the commercials and the script that is supposed to sound like trash talk in a basketball game that I don't want to see it.
Glad I read this, I have come the the conclusion that Hollywood cant make a good movie anymore
No desire to see it but I have to let you know that the reason it is written and produced that way is because it is a graphic novel––not realism.
It was a decent but not great flick. The air combat scenes were well done, though it did have some hokiness at times...a P40 isn't going to destroy a "destroyer" in a couple strafing passes. And the scenes at the end with the ME 262s, while neat, weren't exactly quite right either (the ME262's 30mm cannon were much more destructive than they showed).
Some of the on-ground scenes did seem a little forced. My wife agreed with me that gee, I'm surprised that the Italian gal's family wasn't more racist towards the pilot wooing their daughter. Possible they weren't I guess.
Cliches were in evidence, but frankly that's common in Hollywood flicks these days.
It was an OK movie.
The script was terrible. Real cheesy.
In the first aerial combat scene the .50s actual went "pew-pew-pew!!!"
The sounds for the guns sucked.
The CGI was really good!
