OT and perhaps old news, but some of you might enjoy the following movie.

Here is the trailer:

Second trailer:

Pretty watchable at full screen.

Aerials look good, looks like Top Gun finally got a nice sequal http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I especially like the pilot calling himself "The Gendarmerie Nationale"

Sure popcorn and sodapop, but I still feel this is going to be a nice old fashioned air action movie - with realistic HUD action for a change (well that's at least something...right).

French babes not bad looking either - did I mention legs and stretching?

Movies in French - it'll never catch on. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Seriously, looks a bit more interesting than most of the rubbish inflicted upon my local cinema - I'll probably have to wait for the DVD release, though. Thanks for the heads up http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Hum, as it happens with all modern air warfare movies, realism is sacrificed for the sake of spectacle. Modern fighters usually engage far beyond visual contact. You rarely happen to see clearly your enemy unless everything else has failed -for both sides.

Even if you tangle in a dogfight -a rare occurrence- you trust in your short range missiles: cannon is last resource. And never ever you'd get to be behind and so near of the enemy plane, like a dog smelling another one's a$$. That's fairly impossible and even dangerous.

And those planes exploding like gas filled balloons, hum...

Bah, cool planes, agressive sexy chicks, immature cocky guys with a lot of testosterone... yeah, it may be as BAD as 'Top Gun' was.

Dux,

Just think Bill et John, and smile http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It looks cool but..

I don't trust that moustache.

Update.

I've just discovered that there's a "Bill et John" animation on the Les Chevalier du Ciel DVD, so the relation might be more than just a coincidence.

Probably the best game movie I have ever seen, especially the final joke in the end - very professional in its build up.

This came out like last year or even earlier, it's on DVD now AFAIK, but probably with no english version.

The vid that has been doing the rounds (can't remember if it's been posted here) called 'the Chase' uses footage from the movie.
here it is incase you missed it

Basically it is like a French Top Gun, some nice aircraft footage but utterly **** as an actual film http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Cheers for that, I'll look out for it - not expecting much of a plot (like the flyboys film being touted at the moment) but the air to air shots look interesting. French language ne bothers me pas - I can muddle through (just!)

I have it. It is much better than Top Gun. Especially the stripper scene on the Corsair wing! (Hubba Hubba!)
