Critic Reviews for Flying Tigers
As a war film, it's weak, but thematically, it is significant for introducing the two-generational conflicts that defined most of John Wayne's features, war, adventures, and Westerns.
Jingoistic, flag waving John Wayne action, circa 1942.
While the plot is a clunky and the message heavyhanded, the acting is generally good.
The film's best scenes are reserved for the 1930s style airplane dog-fights.
Great, hokey action and romance set in WW2 China
Audience Reviews for Flying Tigers
This was a really good movie. Good 40's style drama, good action sequences mostly model work and pretty inspired dogfights. A much better film than the Flying Leathernecks.
BETTER THAN AVERAGE JOHN WAYNE FILM, ONE OF HIS BEST FROM THE EARLY 40'S. HE PLAYS AN ACE WW2 PILOT IN THIS RATHER ORDINARY WAR FLICK.
