5.0 out of 5 stars
Up in the air, 18 Jan 2008
I'm always chary about flying films. Old Aeroplanes are my first passion and though the film industry occasionally tries to get some of it right, I usually end up shouting at the screen (Typically, "NO, you idiot!")
Not so with PR. Oh, the plot's straight Biggles and the characters seem to be Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn and Popeye's old adversary Bluto .... but Ah! the aeroplanes! They're from before my true period of expertise, and rather a mix of vintages themselves, but they're done with a care and affection which Hollywood can never be bothered with, not even in "Rocketeer."
I watched this film with a soppy grin all over my face (most of the time) and I'd give it six stars if they'd let me. Don't just sit there, order it! - Bri.
