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

Great stunt flying and photography. Nice score by Jerry Goldsmith. Liked the film in the theater. Small screen not as spectacular. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Vertigo

I first saw this film at age 11. I loved the flying, aerial combat and the sense of history. Ursula Andress was gorgeous then and now. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Wendell Bosworth
