Reviewed by ross-h 6/10

I gave this an enthusiastic 6, and that's not said sarcastically. If youaccept it for what it is, a WWII propaganda film, it is (except for thelasthalf hour) very well done. It was made within the constraints of being apropaganda film, the necessity to maintain dramatic flow, incompleteknowledge at the time of all the facts, and the availability of aircraftthat the Army Air Corps could provide. The aircraft are clearly the bestthing about the film, though Harry Carey came close to stealing themovie.The aerial battles were staged by Paul Mantz, who was THE best in thebusiness. There were two major weaknesses. The first was the frequentreferences to 5th column activity. Except for one minor incident in theKauai area, the Japanese-Americans in Hawaii were singularly loyal to theU.S. The biggest weakness was the totally fictitious battle in the last30minutes of the movie. It never happened. The only sea battle in thatareaduring that time frame was the battle of the Java Sea, which was adisasterfor the U.S. and Dutch forces. Rather it seemed to be an enhancedcompositeof the attacks on Japanese convoys in the New Guinea/Solomon Islandsarea,and the battles of Coral Sea and Midway. We had nothing like the forcesportrayed available at that time. The fighters shown at Clark Field wereBell P-39s. They were very pretty little planes, but were such adisappointment they earned the nickname Iron Dogs (all metal and "dogs").But they still would have been far superior to what was actuallyavailablethere. Sharp-eyed viewers would see that they were also used to stand infor radial-engined Zeroes (P-39s had liquid-cooled engines), along withradial-engined American trainers in the battle scenes. Also, I ampractically certain B-17s didn't have the range to fly from Hickam toClarkwith only one refueling stop, but that is justified by the necessity fordramatic flow. One more note - the dramatic picture of the capsizingbattleship near the end of the movie was not a model, but rather a filmofthe Austro-Hungarian Szent Istvan sunk in 1918 during WWI.

For modern viewers, this is truly a movie for airplane buffs. How manymovies can you find with early B-17s flying? I have always appreciatedthis movie for that purpose. Those early birds without tail guns andpower turrets were all gone by wars end. This movie was made during thedark days of WWII for America and the &#39;D&#39; models were still fairly newand in use stateside as training aircraft. Thankfully the producersjust went to real Army Air Fields and used existing equipment. That iswonderful visual documentation for history buffs! Many &#39;props&#39; werereal! The Air Corps thermos bottles and the Air Crew bandoleers forpistol ammunition were great to see documented.<br><br>This was a wartime movie made in a period where we had suffered lots ofdefeats and few victories. The young men being sent off to war hadgrown up being taught not to kill their fellow humans. Most of theearly war &#39;propaganda&#39; films went to lengths to &#39;dehumanize&#39; the enemyso that a young American entering combat would not be conflicted. Thishappens in all wars but is more obvious to us today due to the amountof films made during WWII. Regarding the talk of &#39;fifth column&#39; work atPearl Harbor, I believe some have missed the point of the propaganda.We have become so aware of the race issue that we miss the point madein the film. It was not so much to single out the Japanese ancestrycitizens of Hawaii as to make the American people think that it wasn&#39;tour military&#39;s fault that we were caught by surprise. The theme in thatscene and later on Wake Island proffered that &#39;our boys don&#39;t lose inan even fight&#39;. It was to establish confidence in our military andequipment. The idea was to tell the U.S. civilian population that wecouldn&#39;t lose unless stabbed in the back. Actually, much of ourequipment of the time was inferior to our opponents. We also had mostly&#39;green&#39; troops whereas the Japanese had a lot of combat experiencedpilots and troops. It was a tough fight all the way through and ourveterans deserve full credit for winning.<br><br>This movie is entertaining and a great one for airplane/history buffswho know what is &#39;right&#39; and what isn&#39;t correct. Politically it isdated and must be taken in context. It is still fun to watch and worthyour time.

Great is over used a lot of times to describe something pretty good oreven mediocre, but I think this movie, taken in context, IS great. Ididn&#39;t see the racism that [email protected] saw, but after allthe movie was made in 1943, we were at war with Japan and since theystarted it, it is understandable that our attitude toward them waspretty edgy.<br><br>I always look at characters and the kinds of feelings they create andwhether a movie can develop a mood. I think the characters and the moodin &quot;Air Force&quot; do that very well. It shows what a downer war really is(it doesn&#39;t make any difference if you are right or wrong)and how muchpeople lose during war. It also emphasizes the futility of it allsometimes when you know you&#39;re going to die, but you are willing to doyour job anyway. Have to hand it to those guys at Wake Island.<br><br>I saw this movie for the first time way back in the 50&#39;s and had thepleasure of seeing it again recently. It&#39;s STILL a great movie. JamesBrown who was Tex Raider the pursuit pilot (played Lt. Rip Masters onthe TV show Rin Tin Tin) and John Garfield who was Joe Winocki are myfavorite characters but like Sargebri it was a hoot to see GeorgeTobias as a young man.
