      Audience Member Created an account just to come here and warn others — don't watch this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review justin t Too long, like an ankle-length miniskirt. The movie is meant to honor WWII Polish fighter pilots from the most successful Hurricane combat unit in the Royal Air Force so I need to be careful not to condemn the intent. There were redundant 'character development' scenes when just one would have given a sense of the person. The CGI made the farthest off Hurricane fighter look as crisp as the closest. In their caps and oxygen masks and cage-like cockpits, German and Polish pilots looked identical. It was often hard to know who had just got got. The subtitles were verbatim instead of summarized so while reading them you can miss the whole scene. I'd give it a C+. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Dreadful. Cliched, stereotypical dross. CGI was not as convincing as a Thunderbird episode from the late 60's. Embarrassing to watch. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved the story based on true events. The fact the 303, Polish fighter squadron, was the most successful in the whole Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain was remarkable, untold history at least for me, an Irish-Polish American. Sure, maybe it's not a Spielberg / Williams production, but I learned a lot. Shame that the pilots either had to choose between menial jobs in England after the war, or return to Soviet-controlled Poland, where many died and whose families died during the war. Want to see a documentary about this now or read a book about it and the pilots. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Pro: true story of brave Poles, Czechs, and Canadians. Con: aerial combat didn't look real Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/20 Full Review örjan f Also known under Hurricane on IMDb A really really good film!

      Ed Potton Times (UK) It's an old-fashioned boy's own tale, with the accent on boys - an attempt to widen the focus to the women working behind the scenes backfires slightly...Still, the story of the Polish pilots deserves to be told. Rated: 3/5 Sep 7, 2018 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian Director David Blair navigates the whole thing through the storm with watchable competence. Rated: 3/5 Sep 6, 2018 Full Review Kim Newman Empire Magazine A niche film for World War II buffs, Polish patriots and air display patrons. Not exactly subtle, but few war films are - and it's hard not to get caught up in fighting these old battles. Rated: 3/5 Sep 4, 2018 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation An entertaining gloss on real history and a pretty good digital updating of the WWII aerial combat thriller. Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 5, 2021 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz Delivering plenty of tears and triumph before tea time (albeit with a nasty true-life sting in its final text summary), Hurricane could just have benefited from a slightly tighter focus. Rated: 3/5 Jan 3, 2019 Full Review Andy Lea Daily Express (UK) Rheon makes a persuasive lead as pilot Jan Zumbach despite having to perform half of his lines in subtitled Polish.
