    Award Worthy
    This is a beautifully crafted war story that needed to be told. Dillard's directing was refreshing to see and delightful to experience on the big screen. I hope the studio supports the film when it comes to nominations for the Academy Awards in best, Director, Editing, Cinematography, and Script Adaptation. It was even worth watching the credits just to see the original pictures of the characters in this film.

    I thought this is going to be another "Tuskegee Airmen" movie. That is why I waited so long to see it. If you can't see it in the movie theater, then be sure to view it on demand. It will be well worth your entertainment dollars.

    If you like aviation and flying, do not watch.
    A lot of mediocre CGI by people who don't understand basic aerodynamics, aircraft, energy or inertia. I bet the current United States Navy would love to obtain gravity defying aircraft like the Corsairs in this movie.

    A lot of time was spent defining the relationships of the principal cast members, and this was not done well, it was slow and the conclusions we were meant to draw were painfully obvious.

    The attempt to include the racism that Jessie Brown clearly endured during his career into the movie felt tokenistic, more focused on the the pain he suffered, whilst sweeping the broader issue under the carpet

    I found the storytelling and acting mediocre. Overall, a slow and disappointingly boring movie which did not engage me at any time.
