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
Very good movie, very good ariel scenes with excellent acting.
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.
One of the best war films ever made, great aerial photography and a compelling story. If your an aviation buff, this is a definate "must have" for your collection.Published 2 days ago by Kevin Hedspeth
I really enjoyed the flying scenes. Always had a soft spot for biplanes.Published 4 days ago by David Whitehead
A surprisingly enjoyable movie. Considering the era before CG and other digital effects, the set and scenes were superbly done. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Kafishna
Absolutely the worst movie I've seen all year long, which is saying something considering I also watched Expendables 3 and White House Down this year.Published 9 days ago by Spencer L Holloway
A little slow by 21st century standards. Watched this for the first time since I was very young and not as gripping a thriller as I recalled from nearly 50 years ago. Read morePublished 14 days ago by K. Michaelsen
I saw this movie years ago and had read the book, so I will say the movie is not the same as the book, but that happens in Hollywood most of time. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Doug Swinford
