"Great to see good WWII movies still being produced."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Really liked this movie being about WWII and one of my favourite aircraft from that era. I think the story was good and more realistic even though it was obviously limited low budget. It was good to see a movie around the Hawker Hurricane.

"Great but was ruined by the air born special effects."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A true story, worthy of telling once more. The extra stores added in do not detract from it all that much historically or dramatically and allow it to have a some what, happy ending. I do not want to criticize the film but it is worthy of better air born special effects than it has. This is the story of the most brutal dog fighting of probably, all time, yet most of the aircraft are flying straight when hit. A film like this should leave me feeling like I was in that brutal dog fight, not laughter in the isle at how poor the special effects were.

Description

Directed by Bafta and Emmy award winner David Blair and based on the true story of Jan Zumbach (Iwan Rheon- Game of Thrones, Misfits) during WWII. Hurricane is the tale of the Polish pilot who alongside his comrades of the Polish Air Force joins the British Royal Air Force to fight during the Battle of Britain.

Having seen Warsaw burn, Poland crumble and France capitulate, the Poles join the Brits to push back the rampant Nazi empire. Initially, the British don't trust the Polish men, and the pilots must contend against a barrage of animosity.

Exhaustion and nerves take a terrible toll on the men as they are pushed to the limit by constant aerial warfare in a fight to save their own country above a foreign land.

“Delivering plenty of tears and triumph before tea time (albeit with a nasty true-life sting in its final text summary), Hurricane could just have benefited from a slightly tighter focus.” - Stuff.co.nz

“Director David Blair navigates the whole thing through the storm with watchable competence.” - Guardian
