    Better CGI Here?

    Always interesting to see how Hollywood? tackles the subject of CGI in Aviation themed movies - usually the flight characteristics seem "off" - thinking of the recent Hurricane movie for one example - anyway I came across this example and think its certainly better than some I have seen!

      Hi All,
      I quite agree I think mostly though it's the same as the makers of documentaries thinking along the lines of the audience don't know any better, also they will not notice forgetting the most important fact about they're prospective audience and that is it will be those interested in whatever in this case aviation.

      Either that or it's an nowadays attitude of they couldn't care less about accuracy or spending decent money on visual effects ? which you would think as with the two above is the most important thing when trying to put a visual side of actions to any audience on any subject surely.

      I have always loved this short clip below it shows just what can be achieved if the willing is there and to me no expense should be spared when portraying historical events.

        Japanese war films seem to manage to get it almost spot-on in terms of flight characteristics.

        Check out The Eternal Zero (also known as Fighter Pilot), Assault on the Pacific or The Admiral for some great aerial sequences.

          Makes you wonder why the multi million pound huge film makers get it so wrong.

            ..and that wonderful Mosquito clip must be 10-15 years old now. It depends just how much effort and money will be taken by the film makers.
