Monte Merrick's script is an unspectacular, cliche-riddled voyage from start to finish, with everyone lugging their own tote-bags of facile character idiosyncrasies. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- What's memorable about the film is the high degree of accuracy. There are a number of gaffes, due primarily to filmmaking compromises. Full Review

Unashamedly commercial. Its moral fabric is thinner than that of other David Puttnam productions. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Excellent and harrowing account of the trials of a World War II bomber crew.

With a surging sound track reminiscent of Chariots of Fire, it is a simplistic tale of fun-loving lads who learn that war is hell. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- This human element in the experience of the Memphis Belle crew somehow compensates for a lack of human dimension in the characters. We can't really tell the crew members apart, and don't much care to, but we can identify with them. Full Review

Product Description:

The brave young men of the B-17 flying fortress named Memphis Belle have just one more mission to fly over Nazi-occupied Europe and they will be on their way home to a hero's welcome. But this 25th mission will also be their most dangerous. Bombing target: Bremen. Fact-based drama.

Plot Synopsis:

Fact-based story about the 10 young crewmen of the Memphis Belle, the famed bomber that completed an impressive 25 flights during World War II. Both the final flight of the plane, and its good-looking crew, become the target of a huge publicity scheme created by the armed forces in order to sell more war bonds.
