Movie Reviews

Concerning the Stuka portion of the DVD
04/23/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I was dissapointed by the Stuka portion of this DVD. Firstly, there were historical errors. For example, the Ju87B series aircraft did NOT have two machine guns in the rear gunner's position like the DVD stated. Secondly, the video clips used in this DVD were used multiple times throughout the DVD. Furthermore, a large portion of the clips had nothing to do with the Stuka at all and showed Ju52s, He111, and Bf109s instead. For the most part, the Stuka video on this DVD seems roughly and quickly patched together, with the most positive aspect of it being a few short clips of first-hand information from WWII Stuka pilot veterens. If you want an accurate picture of what the Stuka really was, find a good book on the subject instead."
