Critic Reviews of "Flyboys"New York Daily NewsSeptember 30, 2006
Aafter a while -- there must be six major fights against unending numbers of German planes -- it feels like special effects run amok.Ebert & RoeperSeptember 25, 2006
Why make such a corny and incredibly predictable film?Seattle TimesSeptember 22, 2006
The painstaking authenticity and appealing cast of Flyboys can't overcome the cloyingly formulaic nature of its story.Toronto StarSeptember 22, 2006
This is old-school moviemaking, for better or worse, which means rat-a-tat dogfights in the sky combined with overripe romantic and social clichés on the ground.San Francisco ChronicleSeptember 22, 2006
Besides some fine dogfight sequences, it often feels threadbare, just an exercise in recycling.Philadelphia InquirerSeptember 22, 2006
Flyboys has computer imaging and a fleet of vintage aircraft on its side, but it remains considerably less convincing than Wings (1927), and less exciting.Honolulu Star-AdvertiserSeptember 07, 2011
Each air battle has been scripted as a set piece that not only shows off the capabilities of the pilots and their machines, but also advances the plot. Bring your Dramamine!KinetofilmFebruary 01, 2010
It may indeed be inspired by a true story, but what we see onscreen is simply "Star Wars" set in some fantasy French air base circa 1917.ColeSmithey.comApril 25, 2009
The characters, although based on real life people, are one-dimensional stereotypes that exist for the sole purpose of presenting indistinguishable flesh-and-blood pilots for superabundant air battles.Calgary MoviesSeptember 16, 2007
The best of Pearl Harbor meeting the worst of HBO's Band of Brothers.Film4June 12, 2007
Yearning for a time when warfare seemed so much simpler and more honourable, Flyboys is a thrilling, spectacular ride - but only when its dull characters get off the ground.Shadows on the WallMay 10, 2007
This well-produced, engaging film somewhat overreaches itself, trying to turn a crackling adventure into a sweeping emotional epic.
