I think the aspect that I enjoyed most about this movie is that even though it is a John Wayne movie, we see a lot of character development from the other actors as well. In 1942, John Wayne was not yet a top 10 movie actor, so the director did not have to have the whole movie spin around him (not that there's anything wrong with that!). But this movie gives us insight into a number of men the Duke have under his command, and the movie is a much richer experience for it. As for the transfer to DVD, it varies from good to excellent. Certainly not as good as Republic's 50th anniversary version, released on Laserdisc. But the DVD has behind the scenes information on the cast members, after the movie finishes. All in all, a great John Wayne movie that no fan should be without!

Format: DVD
Early World War Two film that celebrates, sort of, Claire Chennault's volunteer air group in China prior to the United States' entry into the war, FLYING TIGERS opens with a testimonial dedication by Chinese Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek and spends its remaining 100 minutes test flying a P-40's worth of war-flick clichés.

John Wayne plays squadron commander Jim Gordon, a man who doesn't let the burden of command interfere too much with his romance of pretty Red Cross nurse Brooke Elliott (Anna Lee.) Capt. Gordon recruits Clark Gable-lookalike Woody Jason (John Carroll,) who proves his stuff to the audience - Gordon probably already knew he was a good pilot - by landing a commercial plane in a raging storm on, as the air controller breathlessly tells us above the roar of the tropical storm, a wing and a prayer. The other wing is on fire. Convincingly, too. The special effects in FLYING TIGERS are impressive. Howard Lydecker was nominated for an Academy Award in 1943 for his work here, losing out to the team responsible for the effects in Cecil B. DeMille's `Reap the Wild Wind.' Lydecker's work is almost seamlessly integrated into shots of actual dogfights to very good effect.

What doesn't fit so smoothly is the hackneyed love story. Women were squeezed away from the front line as the war progressed, but in 1942 there were an awful lot of Pacific based military stories that had an awful lot of corny love sub-plots. FLYING TIGERS is bloated with some naïve patriotism, too. There weren't a whole lot of `based-on-fact' stories to tell in 1942, fewer yet that didn't feature doomed military outposts. Chennault was flying missions in China prior to U.S.

Of the John Wayne movies made, this would have to be among his very best. No one could make a movie like the Duke. The dogfight scenes truly capture the essence of the film and the life and times of WWII. I found that the Hollywood genere of this film was great for its display of the US and Japanese aircraft. Whenever I watch this movie, I wonder were and when Hollywood lost its "magic" to make a film that can capture the feeling that David Miller did. Get this one - it is a winner!!

That film, along with Wake Island, gave the American people a sense of pride, determination and the strong feeling of winning in the face of our defeats during those early war years........The film was great!

An excellent John Wayne movie that takesm place during the second World War. John Wayne is the leader of a group of pilots in the AVG or Flying Tigers. He recruits an old friend to join. John Carroll plays the hot shot pilot who is only out for glory and pay. After a tragic incident, will he grow up? Lots of action, humor and even some romance provided by Anna Lee.

Format: DVD
Made in 1942, this movie provides a fictional depiction of the American Volunteer Group who are better known as the Flying Tigers. While the quality of the movie is not all that great, the story inspired a nation during WWII. It also launched John Wayne into a new genre of films.

Most will enjoy the film since it moves along at a pretty good pace considering it was made in the 1940s. The aerial action sequences are actually pretty decent, although it seems like every pilot who dies is shot in the face. The film is obviously aimed at a mostly male audience since the story focuses so much on the relationships of the men as they face enormous challenges and odds.

I did not care much for the love sub-plot, but it seems like a necessary component for most films of this genre. It distracts from the overall story of bravery, courage, honor, and respect. Of course, I did not care much for this part of Pearl Harbor either, so take my comments with a grain of salt.

If you enjoy WWII aerial combat films, you will most likely enjoy this one as well. If you are a fan of the Duke, it is a must see. If you are looking for a historically accurate film about the Flying Tigers this is probably not a great choice, but it is good entertainment.

This is an excellent movie about the WWII group, The Flying Tigers. This movie may have its flaws, but it is very good for a movie made in the fourties. It also includes a great cast with great talents such as John Wayne. Any movie with him in it is good. :) This also has a great theme of love, courage and strength for the U.S. WWII fighter pilots defending China.
