| A truly great MOVIE
Many folks have given this film terrible reviews based on the inaccurate representation of various technical issues; and they're absolutely right. And they've completely missed the point.

They get an A+ on their knowledge of aerial combat and its conduct in the skies of Europe, and an F- on their knowledge of the art, craft, and history of movie-making. George Lucas said plainly that he wanted to give the Tuskegee Airmen the full John Wayne, Hollywood hero movie treatment, and that's what he did to a T. I can only assume that many reviewers simply do not understand the genre AT ALL. It's a fable, a comic book; not a documentary, not a docku- drama, not anything else. If you understand and appreciate the old Hollywood formula for telling the hero's story, you will love this movie. If you don't like old school John Wayne hero movies, don't bother. It's that simple.
