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!

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.

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.

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.

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

Ordered the movie from Amazon Canada not noticing the reference to Region B... why sell Region B to North American audiences?... had to be returned and so money lost... very disappointed. Looked at another copy of Dam Busters, but between the time of considering it and the time of wanting to order the price had gone up considerably... did not order... a bad situation for what I know is a great movie. Lesson learned and buyer a lot wiser.

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.

An awesome historical movie from one of the most daring missions of WW2. While the special effects are not what we might expect today the story and the acting make up for it. The story is told from the perspective of the Inventor who envisioned and developed the bouncing bomb and from that of the RAF crews who had to deliver it on target. The raid undoubtedly made a major contribution to the Allied victory.
