This production, under the direction of Guy Hamilton, pulled together a veritable international air force of authentic airplanes in flying condition....The cast is fairly dazzling too...

Rating: 1/4 -- There are so many characters we never get involved. We can't even keep them straight. The writers never solved the problem of incorporating the top-heavy special effects into their thin little plot. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- This 1969 big-budget extravaganza is noted for its realistic recreations of aerial WWII dogfights. Full Review

Rating: C -- An all-star ensemble cast consisting of the who's who of British films can't save the war epic from being a bore. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Succeeds in giving the general impression of a pivotal historical moment, and excels in crafting some of the most astonishing aerial-warfare sequences ever put on film. [Blu-Ray] Full Review

Product Description:

A powerful and colorful portrayal of an understaffed, technically inferior royal air-crew who valiantly holds off the superior forces of the German Luftwaffe. This pivotal battle of World War II could have led to the Germans winning the war. The incredible cast includes Michael Caine, Robert Shaw, Curt Jurgens, and Laurence Olivier. Based on the actual events.

Plot Synopsis:

A star-studded re-creation of the epic 1940 battle that took place in the skies over England. Surprised and undermanned, the British forces used determination and guile to fend off a ferocious Nazi air attack in the early days of World War II. If England had lost, the Germans may very well have won the war.
