    "Hurricane" - UK trailer unveiled....

    Hmm.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=IV5e2HA6XkU

    Still, it's coming out fairly soon, so we'll see whether it's any good.

    And there's also the Polish version coming out, too.

    Is a habit of Jerry aircraft to just blow up like that?Im thinking 303 Squadron will be a better movie.

    It has a lot going for it, BUT....that CGI really drags it down.

    It is just too much like a combat flight sim, and makes the whole production look rather lightweight.

    The CGI does look a bit budget and i expected someone to bring it up. It's still better than balsa models on strings though. Or just avoiding flying sequences altogether, as many of the old movies did.
    Let's hope it's a decent movie, regardless of the effects.
    Have YOU used the "Will it be at Legends" joke yet today?

    Hi All,
    Ditto what Jmes D wrote, if you must have CGI no expense spared is the way to go, else it looks like like what you see just cheap and unrealistic.

    I'm just happy that ANYONE is still making WWII movies.

    Yes, they have to take liberties (especially with using any aircraft that are still flyable), but I am inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt with regards to the "technical" side. Where I have an issue is where they start trying to inject current politically-correct attitudes and standards into something that happened almost 80 years ago. That, to me, is the real crime.

    The production quality looks cheap and nasty, almost as cheap and nasty as 'First Light'. I still have not made it to the end of that film after a couple of attempts.

    the problem is if you have ever flown an aircraft and in formation the CGI really just looks like a kids video game with not one iota of reality that is why I cannot deal with it, at least with the BoB movie it has that 3 dimension that this film does not have

    Looks pretty good for a 10mil budget.
    You have to remember at least it is telling a story. How accurate it will be is anyone's guess.

    Duff CGI Chaps?

    Could be worse....





    Edit: Actually, the above is a fairly accurate rendition of what was going on inside my 9 year old head when I set light to my Airfix models in the back garden.

    Edit, edit: Oh! And Shughie McFee didn't get a reprise either. Pah!

    I think of First Light as being a modern version of the old school films like Reach for the Sky and Malta Story - using available aircraft and stock footage.

    At the very least, they didn't use CGI!

    If real aeroplanes are filmed by real cameras, in an air-to-air sequence there are shots that are easy, shots that are challenging but possible, and shots that simply cannot be be done.

    Yet the CGI editors/programmers of these films will insist on presenting action and movement which simply cannot be filmed in that way, and thus instantly destroy any vestige of authenticity. Every time, the willfully sabotage their own productions, which is a shame, because with some guidance, the effect could be so much better, at no extra cost.

    I liked the CGI in Unbroken. I thought that was very well done.

    Well,at least it's not set at RAF Lincoln in the county of "Scamptonshire" with a black Lab called "Bigger" or similar.
    "Reminds me of the time I sank the Tirpitz" comments a Spitfire pilot, "One pass of course, old boy."

    I agree with Propstrike, seemingly willfull sabotage. As in previous films, it’s as if the CGI people have been given a cartoon strip and asked to make it happen, without a pilot or appropriate specialist to audit the work. Even the study of period camera gun footage would have helped. Despite all that, I’m grateful for this piece of history to have made it to the big screen. I hope it raises awareness of how Polish armed forces personnel contributed to our survival, and provides an antidote to xenophobic attitudes in these turbulent times.

    Looks OK. Although the CG appears noticeably inferior to the Polish version.
