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.

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.

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.

Probably the worst war movie ever produced. The equipment show was not of the period and very fakey. Scenes were drawn out and slow moving. Editing was bad. It probably made no money and the price to rent is way too high. If I payed even $0.99 It would not be woth the price. Van Johnson a pain to watch.

Van Johnson should have picked a different movie or stayed retired, way too good an actor for this feeble film. It had a good story line, they just wasted it with weak acting and special effects.

Entertaining, but a lot of overacting and the historical time line is way off, even for a fictional.movie.
