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.
