Critic Reviews for The Cold Blue

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (13)

  • We are left with a valuable record of an extraordinary period. The vibrant colour lends the images an immediacy that strips away the decades.

    July 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 'The Cold Blue' gives a real sense of what it was like to be strapped into one of these jolting, juddering, bomb-filled crates. They were called the greatest generation for a reason.

    July 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There is a succession of poignant images: very often of that piercingly blue sky - the hostile "cold blue" - in which the Memphis Belle and the other B-17s flew their missions.

    June 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Cold Blue's imagery is its nominal calling card, and its sights are apt to send shivers down one's spine-including, most poignantly, its portraits of youthful faces.

  • Fine tribute film to a Wyler semi-classic and the men of the Eighth Air Force.

    June 5, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film portrays the daily existence of the young men of the Eighth Air Force, whose experiences flying impossibly exhausting and terrifying daily bombing missions come alive via the recollections of nine surviving veterans.

  • The visuals captured by Wyler's crew are overpoweringly mesmerizing. Even in the midst of combat, there's an unreal quality to the 16mm footage. It could almost be counted against the film that it doesn't quite convey the danger.

  • [A]n extraordinarily moving portrait of the American bomber pilots of the Second World War.
