Movie Reviews

Watchable but not great
Alan A. Elsner | Washington DC | 02/10/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This Canadian mini-series centers around a little-remembered aspect of World War II. The British face a Nazi onslaught and are desperately short of planes. Canadian newspaper magnate turned cabinet member Lord Beaverbrook conceives a bold plan to fly them across the Atlantic from Newfoundland to Ireland. "But that's impossible," everyone exclaims. Not so. With a motely crew of civilian volunteers including Americans, it can and will be done.
The first half of this mini-series moved along briskly. We're introduced to some of the flyers and their intrepid commander and the girl who will organize the operation and provide the love interest. Joss Ackland provides the Chrchill impersonation, complete with growling voice and huge cigar.
Unfortunately, the dramatic tension is not sustained in Part II. Once the pilots show they can indeed cross the Atlantic, the plot veers to infighting over who will control the operation and a poorly conceived love triangle that totally lacks any snap, crackle or pop."
Accurate but needs more plot

"this movie did a great job of tieing in real life facts but it needed more of a plot. i could tell half way through how it was going to turn out but i had to rate it four stars because it just was fun to watch. but be ready for a long moive if you buy this one.

i also would have liked to see more of the germans view on things, it would have helped the plot and given it more of a well rounded point of view of the war.

"This was good. It was well acted, had something for every one. even some romance. It showed some parts that were not fully populated after the war. Like little known. Good flying sequences, drama, It was just a good movie."
