Worth a Watch.,
This review is from: Fortress [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I've watched the film twice now and can honestly say its not as bad as the other reviewers are making out.
Yes it's a very low budget war movie, with some iffy cgi in places, but it serves it's purpose and helps tell the story very well.
You can see it was a labour of love for the filmakers and I think the director, editor cast and crew did an admiral job, which I think the other reviewers didn't get. At the end of the movie there is a message from the film makers saying they did there best on such a low budget etc.
For a DTV film, with such a small budget I was amazed at what they achieved. My favourite part of the film was the first ten minutes which featured lots of aerial combat.
I really enjoyed the film and that's what's important to me as a viewer. If a film achieves that, then its done what it's meant to do in my book. It's not perfect but what film is.
I say give this film ago, as even though it's not a big budget Hollywood movie with expensive production values, it is a solid and enjoyable WW2 film and much better than some of the tripe that goes straight to DVD these days.
No bonus features.
PQ 3 out of 5. Audio 2.5 out of 5.
If I made this film, I would be proud of it. Let's hope it becomes a cult hit on home video.
