The Red Baron (Der rote Baron) (2008)
Critic Consensus: It doesn't lack ambition, and it boasts undeniably thrilling source material, but The Red Baron is brought down by its overly sentimental script and a number of historical inaccuracies.

News & Interviews for The Red Baron (Der rote Baron)
Critic Reviews for The Red Baron (Der rote Baron)
If the film is intelligent and thoughtful, it is unfortunately lacking in energy and passion; it is more a somber, highly familiar reflection on warfare and its toll than an action movie.
Drama about World War I flying aces never gets off the ground.
Unfortunately Muellerschoen's movie emphasizes empty grandeur over human drama.
The propaganda films produced by both sides in the '30s and '40s might've been objectionable for many reasons but at least they had the good sense to show real planes in action.
Audience Reviews for The Red Baron (Der rote Baron)
Great German movie. Historical biographies are some of my favorite kinds of movies, and this is a really well done one.
Well its an alright movie, gives me goosebumps! Its a sweet enough movie thats entertaining to a point! It is slow and boring in places and it does strain to keep you interest but then an interesting scene will come along that then continues to make you watch the movie. Its an alright war movie, certainly room for improvement!
Impressive aerial filming and some good actors but dull, dull, dull.
