First Light Reviews:

Some here are everytime dissatisfied with that type of movies; of course War of Britain is a masterpiece, but why diminish the true qualities of this film which gives us from the very boy who was in these poor moments protecting us (I could tell "you" as I'm French, but indirectly they protected us; had Britain fallen into the hands of the Berlin creatures it would have been worse than the current occupation of France we suffered for all of us.)with his fellow pilots.The power of this film is summed up in the first phrases of Wellum long after the war. "you can't forget it" he says, and quite probably so true. The power of the film is to take us right up into the minds and side results of their jobs at an age when you could think yourself as eternal. Their reactions may seem shocking (see the comeback of Wellum at his station), but they are so real when you war vs fear everyday, well I suppose.No, this is a nice film as the BBC often produces, full of emotion and I'm not ashamed to have succumbed to it. It was worth seeing.


We all know the classic "the war of Britain", the definitive film about the British struggle to hold the Germans out of the UK in WWII. This has a lot of the same in it but then with bit's of narration from an current pilot. It's reasonably played and in a method it's interesting to hear the current pilot's comments in between the bits of movie. I just want it the storyline was said in a more storyline saying way, it's too flat really. It's less about the current flying and more about the physiological results on the lead person, the combat stress. It's interesting to see that side but it misses a bit of something that makes the rating of this TV film not as high as it should be. I don't claim to be a Spitfire connoisseur, but, the sounds of the Rolls Royce Merlin engine in the film just does not sound right. I've heard them in true life at air shows and the popular Merlin engine has a much more growling sound, it's very special in an engine sort of way, it's a symphony. If you are not too much into the history of WWII or airplanes or life of the pilots don't watch, you'll be bored. If you do are interested, watch it indeed, after all it's a true WWII character that the storyline is about, and hero's they were, as in Winston's words, never have so several done so much for so many.


I'm not much for fight movies. I watched this because I wanted to see some of Heughan and Lewis's earlier works. I was impressed with both actors performance. The film wasn't so much about Spitfires as it was on the affects the fighting had on the pilots. It was well produced for a TV movie. Heughan does a nice job testing the part of a young inexperienced Spitfire pilot. Lewis also performs well as the "father" to all the pilots. I like the voice-over inserted into the movie of the now pilot Heughan played. All in all it was a nice TV movie. There s powerful language so I would not suggest it for kids under 16. It would be a nice movie for a hight school history class.
