As directed by John Guillermin (who later made The Battle of Britain in 1969), the film's main assets are epic production values, great flying scenes, and stunning dogfights. The weak point is the sometimes ponderous character drama, not helped by Peppard, who is too lightweight an actor to convince as the driven antihero. Clearly influenced by Kubrick's Paths of Glory (1958), The Blue Max is a cold, cynical drama offering a visually breathtaking portrait of a stultified society tearing itself apart during the final months of the Great War. --Gary S. Dalkin
This is one of the BEST movies ever made!
George Peppard plays Bruno Stachel, an ordinary man from an ordinary family, who gets inducted into the elitist German air corp toward the end of the Great War.
I really like movies about WW1 air combat and this was a good one from the German side, Too bad nobody shows Hell's Angles anymore.

Most critics rank this film among the best 5 or 6 films about WW I...and I would certainly put it there; perhaps the best about WW I air combat. Read morePublished 21 days ago by R. Edward Merrell, Jr.
