Memphis Belle was a film I first saw at a very young age and it has remained one of my personal favourites ever since.
The film tells the (dramatised truth) of the last flight of a B-17 bomber during WWII. It is slightly clichéd and not overly original, but it is good, old fashioned cinema and a couple of hours of well-made enjoyment.
Many of the actors such Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee holds the honour of ball-turret gunner) have gone on to very successful careers. The directing is very engaging and keeps you hooked to the screen throughout the drama.
Overall, there are just so many likeable things about the film, from the acting, the story, the action, the directing and music to the good natured fun of it, and yet nothing that is dislikeable about it. All in all, a top notch film and a personal favourite of mine.
