An excellent movie dealing with Germany's top scoring Ace of WW1 and the somewhat surly Canadian Ace that would eventually end the Red Baron's reign.

WW1 Aerial Fantasy Feb. 11 2011
By Roger Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There is no need for me to add much to the criticism of this film as far as persons and events. However, my biggest problem is with the aircraft themselves. We have nothing but SE-5s for the British and Fokker D7s for the Germans. These are being used long before they were historically available. I suppose these were the easiest aircraft of the period to find, but it does get a bit redundant. At least with films like Blue Max and Flyboys you get some more attention to actual aircraft types. Visually this is a stunning film nonetheless. The non-stop action and constant downing of aircraft in neat black plumes for the dogfights seems excessive for the duration of these actions. Rather if we look at the various scenes as vignettes over a period of time it can seem a bit more realistic. There is not much character development here and some standard hints toward future radicalism of the Right in Germany is shown. Fun if you like WW1 aerial sequences, but even a bit numbing after a while.

A fighter-ace melodrama July 28 2011
By ThorBjorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For those of you that demand historical accuracy, ...this is not the film for you.

Its a largely fictional account of the emminent German fighter ace, Mannfred Von Richtofen (80 confirmed kills in aerial combat!). This movie takes a rather free hand at including people that were not directly involved in Von Richtofen's aviation unit, and the events that actually occurred.

However, it IS an excellent film for those of you that want to see World War I air-combat. All in all, its not a bad film, and its very rare that any movie "based on historical events" has ever been truly accurate.

Uninspired June 11 2008
By P. Hinds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
About the only thing right in this movie is that there were Se5s and Dr1s in WW1. The script is uninspired and the characters uninfluenced by history OR truth. In getting to know Brown you don't learn anything about the real man. The Baron himself is played stiffly and therefore nothing of the Baron's personality comes forth. The flying scenes are poorly done, but at least they are real planes and not computer fantasies. Nothing is revealed concerning the mysterious death of the Baron. Instead, the viewer is led to believe the Baron was so fixed upon May (his target) that he never saw Brown, and that Brown had a great deal of time and a very close shot in which to dispatch the Baron. The resulting film is pure fantasy. The only redeeming value comes from some of the flight scenes, but even then a great deal of detail is lost to the vanities of actors. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the film, but throughout watching it I was concerned that so much truth would be lost to audiences. I had to have thought 'that's not accurate,' at least 200 times while viewing.

Still, I love WWI so much I cannot help but give 4 stars.

Good World War I Movie Sept. 4 2007
By William J. Landon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
While not strictly accurate to history this is an excellent movie of a subject that deserves more attention than it gets - namely World War I. The film is well paced and does agood job handling the action, emotion and psychological trauma of this massive event. A good choice for anyone interested in WW I, action or war films in general.

Another Might Have Been July 8 2007
By Sickly Child - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What a shame. Life and death combat in gasoline powered kites, heroic personalities and nostalgia of a dramatic time were rendered uninteresting by wooden performances and mediocre costuming. See The Blue Max instead. Its German pilots are also all inaccurately kitted out in Uhlan uniforms but at least its story is more compelling and the acting is better. And Usula Andress is not hard to watch either. Someday maybe HBO will do this right. Until then, it's pretty much these two movies and "Dawn Patrol".
