Description
Featuring a “big stellar cast” (Variety), including Michael Caine, Trevor Howard, Laurence Olivier, Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave, Robert Shaw, Susannah York and Edward Fox, Battle of Britain is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war.

  1. I had high hopes for this movie. I found it to be disjointed and the charactors didn’t really develop. I felt nothing in the end.

    Try “Twelve O’clock High” or “Dark Blue World”. Both of these films from different eras are fantastic.

  2. Don’t be misled by the list of stars in this movie. Unfortunately there is simply no story to support any of the actors. This period of WWII, as Britain stood alone against the might of the German Luftwaffe,generated one of the most inspirational real life dramas in human history. The movie should have been a carefully orchestrated story that would grab you and not let go throughout the entire 2 hours and 12 minutes. The men and women who fought so bravely during that period deserved that kind of treatment. The movie, however, is chopped up into special effects (good for its day)of air battles, with absolutely no character development of any kind. The purpose seemed to be to get each of the stars on camera about the same length of time, but without any thought of an overall plot or suspense. This movie should have provided a permanent memorial to the men and women of the Royal Air Force, who just may have been the difference in the outcome of WWII. If this was the goal of the producer/director, then they failed miserably.

  3. Its hard to believe that a film with such spectacular aerial photography could be so dang boring, but “Battle of Britain” succeeds at being one of the great all-time stinkers. Hello?! Is there an editor in the house? Must not have been when they slapped this thing together. This movie demonstrates without a doubt why so few British-made films are worth watching.

  4. There is too little story or character development. There are many people shooting at each other, dieing, getting burned, bailing out etc. but that is most of the movie if that is what you want. Though I watched it to the end with my wife. we found it quite boring. My son who I thougt would really like the movie got bored after about 45 minutes and left to play his combat flying computer game.

    The few minute scenes with Polish volunteer pilots with the British RAF was a nice touch.

  5. This movie has zero entertainment value. You have only to admire the producers efforts in terms of obtaining real World War II equipment for the movie. But, as far as the screenplay goes, it’s so utterly bad, so boring, so tedious (and I’m a big war movie fan!). Some people say the director tried to say it like “it really was”. But here was no need to have that slow pace, that ridiculous dialogues, characters that disappear without a trace, love plots that goes absolutely nowhere, tension close to zero! If it was not for the aerial battle scenes, one would not notice that Britain was in real danger!!
