Critic Reviews for Ace of Aces

All Critics (2)

A dated anti-war film about a hero flyer becoming disillusioned with war.

June 21, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Worth watching only for fans of the genre... its staginess and bullet-point delivery make it less complex and less rewarding than other antiwar films of the 1930s.

June 8, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
