A review by Per Gunnar Jonsson

By Per Gunnar Jonsson

I have to say that I was a wee bit disappointed in this movie. I felt it was surprisingly mediocre and very “Hollywood”.

The good parts are the flight scenes and the special effects. They are enjoyable to watch and reasonably well done. However, that is pretty much what makes up this movie in terms of enjoyment.

I would say that a lot of it is not very realistic. The German anti-aircraft guns seems to be next to useless most of the time for instance. Also, there is the scene where a single P51, armed with nothing but machine guns, takes out an armed German warship in two quick runs. That... read the rest.
