5.0 out of 5 stars Science, flying and war Nov. 22 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had two points of reference when I first saw this film circa 1955. First,, a neighbour pal of my eldest brother shipped out to England in 1937, joined the RAF, trained as a mechanic transferred to the RCAF and after many missions over Germany was assigned as a Flight Lieutenant flight engineer on what were first called "Pathfinder Squadrons." The actual Dam Buster squadron (617 Sqn.) was not only one of those. but was assigned special projects like the Rhur Dams, submarine pens, and the Tirpitz. Our family friend was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his part in the Rhur dam raids and served in over 90 missions over enemy territory. His heroism shone through his modest tale of the danger and terror over the dams, and he lost many of his friends. His story motivated me and when the film Dam Busters was released, I found it added reality, colour and presence to his modest remarks

I found the development of this bomb fascinating (both on the part of the scientists and the crews who had to put his idea into reality.) Once again, the problem of portraying real wartime flying action by simulation and black and white does not create quite the horror that the techniques now used, for example, in "A Band of Brothers" but then perhaps black and white is appropriate for those grey days.

A student of the history of this attempt to convince Stalin that efforts by the West was an effective dcraw of effort by Hitler from the Eastern front may not have been very successful, and lost production by the flooding of factories and workers'towns by the ensuing flood was foound by later analysis to have recovered surprisingly quickly. But the greater synergic effect was the severe damage to crops in the Rhur valley, exacerbating already crucial food shortages.

4.0 out of 5 stars DamBusters Review Dec 20 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hard to find movie about a rarely heard chapter in WWII. Movie was done realistically and well - typical of British war movies. None of the breast-beating that American films usually indulge in

4.0 out of 5 stars Great WWII movie March 3 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have not found this for sale at stores. I love the 'war'movies and an episode of the Buffalo Air series reminded me of this story. I had probably seen it on TV many years ago. The story before the action sequence was longer than I remember. The special effects of that era are enjoyable in that you easily note how good they are today. War movie buffs will love this. Much better than a lot of the war movies that are heavy on the propoganda.

3.0 out of 5 stars The case was broken. This was a gift. June 26 2014
By Melinda
Format:DVD
I bought this movie as a gift for my dad. The movie arrived in decent time, but I had to unwrap the cellophane before giving it to him because it rattled. Thankfully, it was just the case that was broken. But, it was broken.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sept. 11 2013

This was a thrilling movie about world was two. It showed that nothing is impossible when you put your mind to it. I hope they will be a new remake of it soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Region B Dam Busters only for Europe! Nov. 10 2013
By Anne
Verified Purchase
Ordered the movie from Amazon Canada not noticing the reference to Region B... why sell Region B to North American audiences?... had to be returned and so money lost... very disappointed. Looked at another copy of Dam Busters, but between the time of considering it and the time of wanting to order the price had gone up considerably... did not order... a bad situation for what I know is a great movie. Lesson learned and buyer a lot wiser.
