Pales in comparison to The Blue Max
on 26 February 2014
This is a rather 'stiff' WW I drama concerning British pilots and their exploits in combat. The flying/combat scenes are pretty well done but the actions of the flyers when they are on the ground are pretty silly (lots of singing, drinking & dressing up they way only the brits can do when they are getting drunk in the officers club). This move is a weak second to the best WW I flying drama ever made in my view, "The Blue Max" with George Peppard & James Mason. Also, the TV series "Piece of Cake" does a much better job than Aces High showing the dangerous existence of WW I flyers. Both of those films are cheaper and more readily available than Aces High.
