Movie Info

Malcolm McDowell plays a World War I air ace, in charge of an elite squadron. Outwardly a bastion of courage, McDowell dies a little every time one of his boys is killed. To steel his nerves, he takes to drink, which has an adverse effect on his abilities. Christopher Plummer staunchly portrays McDowell's commanding officer. Aces High is a remake of Journey's End (1930), which in turn was based on a play by R.C. Sheriff. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Aces High

No, not the Iron Maiden song, but a really cool war film starring a young McDowell. Saw this on late night TV, maybe now that Royal Flash is out on DVD someone will think to release this one.
