Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Besides some fine dogfight sequences, it often feels threadbare, just an exercise in recycling.
Rotten: Aafter a while -- there must be six major fights against unending numbers of German planes -- it feels like special effects run amok.
Rotten: The computer-generated flying effects are the only reason to see the movie, but at some point somebody left the computer on too long, so it went ahead and spat out the script.
Rotten: Flyboys has computer imaging and a fleet of vintage aircraft on its side, but it remains considerably less convincing than Wings (1927), and less exciting.
Great Movie! Can't believe no one reviewed it!
Great WWI flying movie. Anyone who likes action and history this is a must see!
I thought this was a great movie. It was etertaining with plenty of action and a fairly good story. For those of you who like war movies it fits the bill just fine.
one thing was realistic...
About the only historically accurate things in this move was the fact that the war took place in France (amongst many other European countries)...are we Americans that "special" that we have to have everything dumbed down for us? there was never a full squadron of red planes (the list of hollywood drival goes on).....please honor those whom fought in these wars by telling some facts and not this sugar coated crud
