Ham in the SkyBy paulius from Lancashire , 04 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Don't get me wrong . I love this film. It's just the thing for a lazy weekend afternoon when the weather's dodgy. Battle of Britain at its best ( nearly) and a true hero to boot, or rather minus two boots.
The trouble is Kenneth More. Just a tad too gung ho for even the stiff upper lip brigade. If I was in his squadron I would have throttled him long before the jerry took his legs away. Mr More does servile well...The Admirable Crichton is testimony to this. I know he was a mate of Bader's but this performance should have tested that friendship to its limit.
But at the end of the day its a cracking yarn and all the better for being (almost) real. And any film that celebrates the phenomenal achievement of the 'few' has got to be good ...in my book.
