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!
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.Read more ›
