Having heard nothing but bad reviews of this, I avoided it like the plague!

However, having heard it was worth watching from Clive (wcg), I thought I'd give it a go!

Clive has never let me down when it comes to films before, and he's even right when it came to this!!!

The plot of the film is as thin as a bus ticket, it centres on the struggles of a B-17 pilot and two waist gunners who are sent in to replace the members of an established crew that were killed on a bombing mission.

That is about it!

It shouldn't be as good as it actually is!

The CGI effects are really good and, I agree with Clive, in a lot of places they are better than Red Tails.

Apparently, the budget for this film was next to nothing, but they spent what they had where it mattered!

Lord Puttnam can rest easy, this film will never rival Memphis Belle, but it is worthy of 90 minutes of anybody's time!

If you're a member of Lovefilm, you could do a lot worse than add this to your list!
