A TERRIFIC FILM WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITE STORYLINES EVER... YOU'RE IN FOR A REAL TREAT!-- Quentin Tarantino

ENZO CASTELLARI IS THE '70s ITALIAN DRIVE-IN ACTION GOD! --Los Angeles Times

Product Description

From The Writer/Director of INGLORIOUS BASTARDS
Featuring Bonus Materials With QUENTIN TARANTINO

Nine years before his WWII classic INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, Enzo Castellari virtually invented the 'Macaroni Combat' genre with this over-the-top saga of valor, vengeance and machine-gun mayhem. Hollywood legend Van Johnson (THE CAINE MUTINY) and Frederick Stafford (Hitchcock's TOPAZ) star as military officers pursuing a merciless team of Nazi saboteurs through war-ravaged London, featuring Castellari's jaw-dropping recreations of the evacuation of Dunkirk, the Battle Of Britain and more. Francisco Rabal (NIGHTMARE CITY), Ida Galli (THE PSYCHIC) and Luigi Pistilli (THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY) co-star in this explosive epic - also known as BATTLE SQUADRON - now restored in High Definition Blu-ray for the first time ever in America!

EXTRAS:
"A Conversation with Quentin Tarantino and Enzo G. Castalleri Part 2"
"Eagles Over Los Angeles"
Audio Commentary with Director Enzo G. Castellari

4.0 out of 5 stars More "Macaroni Comat" Please.... September 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We Italian film fanatics can all thank Quinten Tarantino and his new Film "Inglourious Basterds" for companies finally releasing some high quality "Macaroni Combat" films on DVD. First we Got Wild East's release of "Churchill's Leopards" & "Salt in the Wound" double feature, then we got Dark Sky's release of "The Last Hunter". FINALLY we got Severin's release of "The Inglorious Bastards". Now Severin graciously releases yet another "Macaroni Combat" classic with "Eagles Over London".

Directed by perhaps Italy's best action director Enzo G. Castillari, "Eagles Over London" came very early on in the "Macaroni Combat" cycle being released in 1969. Right off the bat people are going to compare this film to his nine year later classic "Inglorious Bastards" and I will admit this film isn't as over-the-top or as fun as that film. It however is a very entertaining Italian cult flick.

The film surprisingly has very strong production values for an Italian film at the time. Most Italian films have very low budgets but this seems to be an exception. It comes nowhere near the look of big budget Hollywood WWII films at the time, and people shouldn't expect it to be, but for an Italian film this is pretty big and epic.

The plot is standard with British military officers a in pursuit of a merciless team of Nazi saboteurs though war-ravaged London. Throughout it all there is plenty of violence and cool camera work to appease all the Euro cult fanatics out there. The aerial combat sequences do look fake but then again it really looks no worse than Britain's 1969 big budget epic The Battle of Britain.

Overall I found this to be a very entertaining Euro cult film by one of Italy's great directors. Some of the dubbing is unintentionally funny but we fans come to expect that.

2.0 out of 5 stars HD Quality? January 3, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Historical accurate or not doesn't matter for me. I was interested seeing Van Johnson, Frederic Stafford who are the two international stars of this italian made (original title: "La battaglia d'Inghilterra") War Movie and directed by Enzo G. Castellari (Quentin Tarentino is his biggest fan).

It was one of the biggest italian war movies at this time and of course, the special effects are (for today) not perfect and you can clearly see some "split screen" scenes. But I don't care about and you should also not (because the movie was made in 1969 and they never had a big budget like US movies).

This Blu-Ray is Codefree.
Subtitels available: NONE

Bonus-Features:
- the 2nd part of a Interview of Quentin Tarantino with Enzo G. Castellari ("Inglorious Bastards"): 1080p, Dolby Digital 2.0, 14:15 min
- Eagles Over Los Angeles (1080p, Dolby Digital 2.0, 16:34 min)
- Deleted Scene (1080p, Dolby Digital 2.0, 00:32 sec.)
- Trailer

The Picture Quality is not very good all. For a DVD it might by ok but for a Blu-Ray? It says on the back Cover "restored". I really have expected a better quality. Its just to corny and the black contrast isn't that good.

Also dissapointed that the Blu-Ray doesn't have any subtitles.

2.0 out of 5 stars weird movie April 17, 2013
By AL
Format:Blu-ray
I have to say this movie is the strangest classic WWII movie I ever encountered. I think the story was okay but the hardware especially the combat scene is really awkward. HA1112 as spitfire and spitfire act as Me109s? I can hardly tell which side their on. It seems like a large budget movie, but I will not recommend this movie to any historic aviation fans. Stick with Battle of Britain if you want history.
