Terrible, simply appalling!,
This review is from: Battle For The Skies [DVD] (DVD)
Purchased this DVD as it looked interesting and I hadn't seen this title in the shops previously. Being South African made, I suppose that it was unsurprising really. I love anything to do with WW2 so was looking forward to it. Well, what can I say, I've watched quite a few poor films about the war over the years, usually despite their failings, they always have something to offer however small. This then, was a first! Awful weak acting, with South Africans trying to sound like public school Brits, dreadful second rate computer generated effects,and a plot which only briefly came to life about fifteen minutes from the end. Historically inaccurate too.
All in all, don't waste money on this pathetic film which is truly as bad as my review suggest!

Quite agree, although not bought DVD watched on TV tonight and found many inaccuracies. RAF bombing daytime no that was the USAAF job with fighter escort. CGI of fighters not bad but smoke when one was hit awful. If this had been real action I expect a lot of the Liberators would have been shot down. Did the Liberator have open gun ports like the B-17? Dont think i can find any photos of Liberators showing that. Would the crew have had an escape kit with a compass?

Not bought the DVD, saw about twenty minutes on TV tonight, that was too much. Utter rubbish, the Germans would have been lucky to have got in the Boy Scouts never mind the SS, and the British Troops were not much better. Buy it they should give it away.
