  • Flyboys doesn't succeed as a wartime adventure story or as a period romance. Even the special effects, set in a historical context, are too ho-hum to save this over-long and tedious film. show more

  • Shot like a Disney period piece (prettily, with spiffy props, shiny vintage vehicles, and costumes just back from the cleaners), Flyboys introduces its squadron the old-fashioned way: with character-establishing setups. show more

  • A decidedly old-fashioned war film that reaches for epic sweep but is often bogged down in cliched drama and two-dimensional characters. show more

    Have been looking for this movie for two years. Friends told me they saw it in a small town and it was great. Especially for teenage boys. What happend. It never opened in Phoenix and never came out in rental. Just disappeared. Can I buy it somewhere????

    The movie was AWESOME. It was so entertaining and wonderful for everyone to see. This movie was much better than any Disney movie I have ever seen. This movie needs to go National because it would be ashame if everyone didn't get to see this great movie. There is not one part of the movie that was not entertaining. To the writer, directors, and producers - Bravo - Job Well Done!!!! Maybe you can teach Disney something!
