Movie Reviews

What is this?
(1 out of 5 stars)

"(I had to put in a star rating to get this to post--its not an actual reflection of the product's quality, since I haven't seen it.)At first I was elated, thinking MGM had brought out a proper edition of "Battle of Britain" to replace the terribly flawed DVD they released last year. The Amazon information for this new release states that it is the 1969 theatrical film starring Harry Andrews, Michael Caine, etc. However, the cover art has the title "The Battle of Britain: The Official History." I hope Amazon or someone who has seen it will clarify this as soon as possible! I guess a good DVD of "Battle of Britain" this soon after the botched one was too much to hope for, after all."
An Embarrassment

"When you review the list of outstanding actors, you think, "This has got to be, if not great, at least a good movie." Not so! Don't be fooled. This thing has no story--it's just a series of compartmentalized scenes edited together, apparently by committee. The technical effects, depicting the RAF in action, were adequate for that day, but this could not possible redeem an otherwise lost cause. The real story of "The Battle of Britain" deserves much better than this."
