    Mike Phillips directed this World War II docudrama. Set in Europe circa 1943, it recreates the events leading up to and following a horrifying tragedy. The commander of a B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber loses his life in an air raid over Sicily; his replacement, a neophyte pilot, must struggle to gain the acceptance and approval of the plane's mostly Irish crew. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

      Great Story but Fails to Inspire

      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      This movie is a realistically-told story by young relatively unknown actors who acted their parts well. It is choreographed to tell the story of the Allied Bombing Campaign against Axis Italy that commenced in July 0f 1943. The actors did their part but in many cases the Director missed the mark even though he was backed up by very realistic sets and in-depth CGI effects – the film failed to inspire the viewer but it does tell a good story.
