While it's better than Pearl Harbor, Dark Blue World still spends too much time on a trite love triangle. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Jan Sverak ("Kolya") directs this uplifting film about a hallowed Czech fighter pilot (Ondrej Vetchý) who must train a much less experienced colleague (Krystof Hádek). When the country is invaded by the Nazis in 1939, the pilots are forced to work fast. Eventually they escape to England, where they band together with other pilots and join the RAF, a decision which will haunt the men years later.

Audience Reviews for Dark Blue World

  • Jan 04, 2011
    A Czech film about Czech fighter pilots flying for the R.A.F in world war two, the immediate build up and the aftermath. I found it very interesting to see this inspiring and also tragic tale from a Czech perspective. Fans of war films will obviously like it but there's a great deal here of a human and historical nature to fulfil a wider appeal too.

    Compelling and well crafted movie that tells the little-known true story of heroic pilots for whom WWII never really ended. Krystof Hádek is outstanding, I continue to be impressed with the quality of Czech actors and films.

    Good performances and some impressive visuals can't hide the boyishness in this film, and the surface treatment given to it's themes. A european Top Gun!
