      Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …a smart, bitter war film that has plenty of big ideas to unfold… Rated: 4/5 Jun 11, 2023 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Still impressive...but most every scene that isn't airborne feels stodgy and bloated.

      Lon A Good movie, holds up well for being a 1966 Film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review Michael W Great movie with original aircraft Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/08/23 Full Review CodyZamboni Movie is about the extreme ruthless lengths and life threatening dangers a common man pilot in WW1 Germany will go to get the coveted title award. Compelling aerial battle action, hair raising stunts, and a focused arrogant performance by George Peppard, sell this movie. Bonus, eye opening hot sex scene with Ursula Andress, wearing a barely there towel, that managed to get by the censors in 1966. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review Liam D Despite some impressive performances the movie feels stale and over long Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/21/22 Full Review Audience Member A good movie with a good cast.great ariel battles. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Great film. Does not have all the modern special effects etc, but the aerial combat scenes and the battle scenes are incredible. All the old planes are just breath taking. Makes you want to get in and fly one of the old biplanes. Loved it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
