Painful to watch.

OK I love history and war stories, good war stories. This isn't one of them.

Don't know why I'm posting this as it coming this late no one will be reading this, but I've got to get this off my chest because I've heard so many people say great things about this movie and I'm not just a little disappointed. The heavy use of the Folker DR1 Tri-planes was just too much. Those came in later in the war and not used in such large numbers, and why so many were made to look like the most infamous one of all was just bad taste. I'm glad I didn't go see this at the theaters, but I'm still disappointed I paid to rent this movie.

There were no black pilots in WW II

I just hate when a movie is used to falsify history. This one is another one in a row. Triplanes were used only in the late stage of the war and only few - not so many as depicted here. There were also absolutely no blacks serving as pilots in WW I! Non. Yet here we have one and it is almost as annoying, then seeing a black knight or duke in a midieval story! Don't waste your time on garbage like that!

Average Execution of an Interesting Topic

(Flash Review)

Based on a true story, before WWI begins, a bunch of Americans volunteer to be fighter pilots for the French military and learn to master these early aviation machines and battle the Germans. The movie brings a typically eclectic bunch of characters, based on real people to some degree, and create partially flushed out characters from them. The movie shows how the pilots were trained to fly these plans as well as how to prepare for combat. There are several fairly exciting battles in the sky but after a while tend to get a bit redundant. There is also a true romantic story line to compliment the battles. Overall, it was average but the director failed to dramatically engage the viewer with the characters to evoke true emotions for them mostly because the drama is very cliché and been there done that many times before. A better example of this subject can be found almost 100 years earlier with Wings (1922).
