Movie Reviews

"PILOT X" aka "Murder in the Sky"
L. Dequesada | JAMAICA,, NY United States | 06/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A phantom WW-I ace, bearing an "X" on his flying leather helmet, raises havoc and terror by popping out of the clouds and shooting down fellow flying aces opponents, many times after a fierce "dogfight". Who is the phantasmagorical killer "Pilot X". Do not miss this rare and old time air war drama starring John Carroll of "Flying Tigers" fame and co-starring Lona Andre. One of the best "B" movie films of the 1930's, produced by low budget studios "Fanchon Royer Pictures". I highly recommend it."
Bad copy, and below average serial
Edward L. | USA | 07/05/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The premise is good, and I like the old serial cliffhangers... but this one is difficult to see and hear, surely there is a better copy somewhere that they could have transferred to DVD. The "action sequences" make the old Buck Rogers special effect (the OLD Buck Rogers...) seem amazingly advanced (if you remember the droning space ships that wouldn't fly exactly straight and the smoke would drift up and make the wires show) compared to this one.

I'd pass on this one and look for some of the later flying serials."
