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.

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.

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.

WW1 Flying Movie Feb. 24 2007
By Seen Them All - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the story of Baron Manfred Von Richtofen (aka "The Red Baron") who terrorized the skys over France during WW1 and the Canadian flyer who eventually shot him down. Stars John Philip Law as "The Baron" and Don Stroud as Lt. Roy Brown. Good flying sequences. Not the best movie but fairly accurate historically. Important to note that in the beginning there was a "Code of Honor" between the Germans and the Allied pilots. "The Great Game" as it was sometimes called. As the war progressed and more men died, those who took their place were less interested in honor and more interested in defeating the enemy and surviving to war. In the beginning there was enthusiasm to the flying. Toward the war's end those who survived were cynical and exhausted by what they had seen. Overall a pretty good movie.

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.

Great adventure film based on WW1 legendary ace Aug. 23 2011
By Andres C. Salama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
An entertaining movie about the World War I exploits of the ace German pilot Manfred von Richthofen's (aka, the Red Baron) and his main opponent, Canada's Arthur Brown.

The aristocratic Von Richthofen is so honor bound that he refuses to use camouflage paint on his planes, because "a gentleman should never hide from his enemies" and instead paints them with the brightest colors. The pragmatic, no-nonsense Brown, instead, does not believe in honor or chivalry: he just wants to win.

I can't vouch for the complete historical authenticity of this movie - to mention just one instance, the actor portraying Hermann Goering looks nothing at all like the future Reichsmarshall, and his role in the flying circus was not as prominent as the movie implies. But as an entertainment (by the well known horror low budget film director Roger Corman) this movie is certainly well done. Sure, there is some corny dialogue here and there, and having Von Richthofen speak English in the movie with a heavy German accent was probably not the best idea, but the magnificent shots of period planes fighting in the air over the patchwork fields below separated by hedgerows (shot in 1971 with fearless stuntmen, well before digital imagery started appearing in films) more than makes up for this movie's shortcomings. The great color photography is another plus.
