IMDB link to movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454824/maindetails)

Film about the Lafayette Escadrille (or so it claims http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

Who knew this movie was coming out, much less being made ? I know, the inevitable U-571 and Pearl Harbor remarks about Hollywood "history" will be made, but it's rare to see an air combat-themed film being made nowadays, much less a WW 1 one.

I think we already did that for this one?

Yep, we even had a big discussion on the preview.

Yep, it looks to be a mediocre love story with dogfighting senes.

I lost interest when I saw the pilot running along the top of an exploding zeppelin in typical DIE HARD style (before the inevitable save which will also defy physics). THE BLUE MAX will remain the best realistic WWI flying film. Everything now has to exist in a dreamscape of surreal actions.
