View Full Version : Les chevaliers du ciel

I just finished watching "Les chevaliers du ciel". Don't get me wrong the story and acting are terrible (ala Top gun, without the Hollywood stars) but the aerial footage is just jawdropping. No CGI, just pure flying, shot from another plane http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif It really sets the standards as far as aerial photography goes.

A little of taste:

I think it realy captures the spirit of flying.

I bought the movie when it first came out, the aerial shots really are amazing.

I like this clip (with different music)


It was also this jaw-dropped effect when I saw the clip.
I haven't seen the movie at all, and I skipped on the discounted DVD sale also, I think, exactly because of the Top Gun style macho cover.

But the aerial shots are incredible, e.g., breaking through the could base in loop, or the "mother goose" with the "3 little chickens", or the afterburner in the night.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Can't wait to get the DVD now, I hope I will survive the background story without throwing up.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Some scenes are GCI, but most of it is actual RL footage.

You should no better than to believe DVD covers.

My copy of Dark Blue World has something like "In the Great Tradition of the Blockbuster Pearl Harbor" blazened across it.

this movie has the best aerial fotage i have ever seen. Much better than top gun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. The story is terrible, and its even worse for me since i dont speak french and had a downloaded copy with crappy subtitels. But again, aerial fottage is the best ever.

Problem is.... We french just don't now how to write a proper action movie scenario..... But we are very good for comedies http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

For the ating, I have to say the english dubbing is terrible !!!!

Anyway, the aerial footage are indeed awesome, and that's just for that reason that I went to the cinema to see this movie.
