Aces High Reviews
with some great flying sequences and that lovely natural 70s look and feel, and the great storied Malcolm McDowell in a perfect role and the legend Christopher Plummer
not for everyone but a good viewing
At any rate, I've been looking for a good WW1 flying film and until now found them all surprisingly lacking. The Blue Max was grim and rather unlikeable, Flyboys cliche-ridden and cheesy, Biggles a farce, Red Baron overly-enthralled with its hero, and most of the others are much older and thus more limited in what they can present. This is rather the best of the lot.
Great aerial batter sequences, except for a couple of scenes that were taken from "The Blue Max" which is my only complaint about the movie that they didn't create their own scenes instead.
