      Audience Member Possibly the best WWI movie i've seen to date. A bit silly in places but a lot of fun. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Jared D The film has an excellent cast led by York, Sommer and Diffring. The writing, pacing and directing are, for the most part, unexceptional and lead to periods where the story lags, especially at the beginning. Indeed, the biggest flaw of the film is the story. Simply stated, it is preposterous. The main character (basically a double agent) doesn't know what his mission is either for Germany or the British -- and there reaches a point in the film where I really didn't care. By later standards, the special effects are quite pedestrian and passable -- only just barely. Having said that, for fans of zeppelins, this is a very engaging film. One of the technical advisers for the film was actually a veteran from the old Zeppelin works in pre-World War II Germany -- and that extra level of detail showed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/25/20 Full Review Audience Member A WW1 soldier "defects" to Germany so that he can spy on their zeppelin programme, only to discover that they intend on using it to steal the Magna Carta. It's a ridiculous plot, and I was expecting it to be a ridiculous film. But while it was indeed fairly stupid, it never seemed as aware of the fact as the plot required. So instead of the crazy action-adventure film it should have been it becomes a fairly silly drama. I still enjoyed it, but it had the potential to be more. Or less, depending on your point of view. The funniest thing about the film is that the film is just realistic enough that the plot is genuinely as dumb as it sounds. Our "hero" doesn't really do anything to foil the villains, they do that by themselves. All he can do is kill an innocent civilian and get shot. And Michael York is the worst spy in the history of spies. Honestly. You can believe he'd be Austin Power's boss. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Los zeppelines evocan una à (C)poca extraordinaria de la historia de la aeronaútica, del mismo modo que entroncan con las fantasias más golosas de visionarios como Julio Verne. Sin embargo, estas criaturas fantásticas devinieron monstruos mortíferos durante la Primera Guerra Mundial. Un punto de partida interesante que, como sucede muchas veces, termina convertido en una película mediocre, en la que se salva el buen hacer de los maquetistas y la aparición de algunos secundarios simpáticos como Anton Diffring y Elke Sommer. Insulsa, insulsa. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
