5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational! Dec 11 2006
This movie is simply inspirational. From the "stiff upper lip" bravery of the pilots, to the perseverance of the scientists to the loving support of wives - it shows wartime Britain at its best.

This movie shows the courage and inspiration behind the development of the "bouncing bomb", and the the necessary "out of the box" thinking needed by everyone concerned to complete the mission. George Lucas lists this as among his favourite movies, and it is consistently ranked in the top #50 British movies of all time.

The transfer to DVD is superb, sound and picture quality is execellent.

Politically correct revisionists should beware that the wing commanders black lab dog is called the "n" word.

I would not hesitate to buy it. And it is a movie all the family can watch as there is no graffic violence.

6 stars out of 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars Science, flying and war Nov. 22 2009
By Maurice A. Rhodes TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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 Ruhr Dams, submarine pens, and the Tirpitz. Our family friend was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his part in the Ruhr 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 the series "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 draw 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 found by later analysis to have recovered surprisingly quickly. But the greater synergic effect was the severe damage to crops in the Ruhr valley, exacerbating already crucial food shortages.

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.

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

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars The case was broken. This was a gift. June 26 2014
By Mel
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars if they could only REDO the special effects June 23 2007
This is one of those one off "definitive" films depicting certain event of the Second World War. The film tells the story of the 1943 bombing raids on the Ruhr dams in the heart of Germany. It details the men, the training and the sacrifice of the 617 Squadron for this operation.
Filmed so shortly after the war it has authenticity, the maker of the special "bouncing" bombs was still very much alive. And the acting is fine.

The only problem is the special effects which are really TERRIBLE, instead of using explosives on miniature models, they decided to use some sort of "cartoon" effect looking like (and probably is some film of)waterfalls posed as exploded water columns !!!
How is it possible that they could use real Lancaster bombers and yet fail utterly to convince at these crucial shots ??????

Even as a kid watching this made me laugh and I still do.

With advanced computer technology these days, I am sure thay can do a frame by frame redoing of those explosion scenes using CGI which will for sure enhance the pleasure of watching this otherwise very well made film.

There is no need to remake this movie, just touch up those explosions !
