The Battle of Britain is a classic movie about one of the key battles ofWorld War 2. It stands up there with the epics The Longest Day, Tora,Tora,Tora and a Bridge Too Far. The all-star cast has well known and lesser knownEnglish, Canadian, German and others actors who play their roles well. Themovie does a good job of portaying both sides of the battle. The specialeffects and the air battles hold up well after well over 30 years. Thecriticisms that people have to me are quite unfair. As for charcterdevelopment, the movie is about the battle, much like the Longest Day wasand there was no time to develop that part of the movie because it focusedon the entirety of the battle. Also this is not like Cross of Iron thatsomeone compared it to. Cross of Iron was a fictious story, while this isdone in semi-docudrama style.It is an unfair comparison. The best comparisonwould be with the three previously listed movies. I liked that fact thatsome big stars characters did get hurt or died just like many of the betterpilots did in the the battle and the war. The movie gives an excellentoverview of the battle, much like the other movies listed here. I like thefact about the bit of English snobbery concerning the foreign pilots thatthey were training even if some were as good or better than they were.Thisis a four star war movie obout Britains Finest Hour. Where if it wasn't forthe Brits holding off the German's, the Allies would not have been able tolaunch D-Day against the German's. The movie showed bravery and courage fromboth sides men and pilots. It is a great portrayal of young men in battle asknights of the early war skies. Rent it or buy it, because this is aclassic.

This film was an attempt to deal with the crucial events of 1940, whenBritain might have been invaded and oppressed by Nazi Germany. Had thissucceeded then subsequent history might well have been very different,a Europe subjugated by the dark evil of that regime.<br><br>As a straight historical account this film fails rather badly. Most ofthe characters are artificial, created for the Stars and starsinvolved. Dowding and Park, historically absolutely crucial, neverdevelop properly - a pity. Goering is cartoonised, but at leastreflects his total failure to conduct a strategic assault on the UK.<br><br>The flying sequences are, mostly, superb. It was a huge achievement tobring together the aircraft used. As an enthusiast I can pick massiveholes in those used. None of the 'German' aircraft have correct engines- they were post-war Spanish Air Force stand ins. And that's before westart on the late war mark Spitfires etc. But who cares? The point isthe conflict in the air. It is not close enough to 'real' aerial combat- 10 seconds of terror in 60 mins of boredom. But that is the nature ofthe cinema medium.<br><br>The distraction of Suzanne York (BTW she's not trying to get divorced!)in full 40's u/wear was very exciting when I was 16. At 52 I suppose itstill gives me the odd moment!<br><br>And look for the hanger being 'bombed' behind Suzanne York and KennethMore, it really WAS blown up at Duxford - boy, were they cross!<br><br>The revisionist historians like to claim that the (actual) Battle ofBritain was not that important. That the Germans couldn't have crossedthe Channel anyway because of the Royal Navy (probably, but notnecessarily so. With air supremacy JU87s would have massacred RNvessels). That the Germans already had eyes on Russia and really wantedto ignore GB as a sideline, possible and a fatal mistake. That theGermans lost the battle, rather than the RAF won it (no statisticalbasis for this, the Luftwaffe smashed itself against the RAF).<br><br>But the Battle WAS fought, and won by the RAF.<br><br>Which is why I believe this film is worth a viewing.<br><br>Especially the Walton scored sequence, where the Luftwaffe's bombersare hacked down by the Hurricanes and Spitfires of the RAF. Animpressively moving sequence of the horror of war in the air. To whichthe music adds enormously.<br><br>I place this film well ahead of the 1990's Memphis Belle travesty indepicting the reality of war. It is certainly on a par with 12 O'ClockHigh.

I recently reviewed this film after having not seen it since it was new.Being a 31 year military veteran I have a somewhat different frame ofreference for watching films such as this. I look for things in a film manycivilians never will. I don't think this one has ever been shown on TV inthe US, at least not within a couple of decades, so it's certainly notoverplayed here. Luckily, the tape I accessed was in excellent condition soit was crisp and new in appearance. It is still a very excellent filmdepicting one of Britain's most harrowing times and the unwavering heroismof those who fought so desperately to secure their victory. The film didn'tenjoy many fine reviews when it was new as it was compared, as most warfilms are, to the plethora of fiction produced by the movie industry andREAL history usually comes off looking mundane by comparison. I have foundthis a similar oddity for many excellent films of war. This is one film thatmore than adequately stands the test of time and I would absolutely love tosee a wide-screen DVD version of it offered. Although it helps to have anunderstanding of war in general, and in particular the second world war andthe actual battle of britain, one can be ignorant of those facts and stillcome away well entertained. It is a wonderfully produced film, acted withtalent and grace by a cast of performers who are now legendary. The sets,costumes and musical score are wonderful and perfectly compliment thecinematography. If I can find a copy I am going to add it to mylibrary.
