| WW II Ace's son's story
Don Borza has a great love for his father, and wrote a screenplay to try to capture the adventures of Mr. Borza Sr.

It is an interesting story, however in need of major editing. Some of the movie was in sepia-tones (burnt yellow-cast) and that distracted from it's impact. Way too many old' stock Ariel combat scenes.

The one truly great acting job was from an unknown, Stephen Emmerling. He was so totally convincing, believable, and was a nugget in the otherwise slow action.

The roster of great actors does not serve the movie well, as the acting and directing are from, and about Don himself. Intimate scenes with his starlet were ineffective towards furthering plot. E for effort and L for love of his father, to attempt it with out Hollywood money.

With the now new Move out by Clint Eastwood, Flags of our Fathers; maybe Don will pull it back out, and dust it off, and make a great move! Jan Michael Vincent is less than what I remember his capability, in this one.
