With the fate of Europe still hanging in the balance, a disparate bunch of brave Mosquito pilots are ordered on a near suicide low-level mission to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel depot in Norway...

To make the film, which was based on a true story, a squadron of legendary de Havilland Mosquito fighter-bombers was resurrected from near extinction. Dazzling flying sequences, bone-shaking sound and superb special effects help to make this one of the most realistic air combat films ever to reach the screen.

 Stirring exploits of the RAF

| | See all LordDerfelCadarn's reviews (11)

OK, I know its an old film and the effects of today leave those of this film standing but what really makes a great film are the performances and story. This film has them both.
The write up says its based on real events, if my memory serves me correctly it isn't and Frederick E Smith makes no such statement in my copy of the book upon which it is based.
That said, it certainly is a great film. The performances are perfect and not overly heroic but depict the real pilots and other RAF servicemen as they should be down to earth, brave and young(ish), normal men caught up in the war, with their own loves and looking forward to life after the war with differing degrees of trepidation or longing.
The flying sequences are good and believable, the ending stirring and worthy of any do or die story with true heroism in the face of overwhelming odds.
This is the war film all others should be compared to and in the same league as The Dam Busters. Great stuff for any (war) film fan.

*633 follows a number of Pilots into a dangerous job in Norway.
*The film is well made. It has a good pace and some good action. The effects are not up to today's standards but considering how old the film is the effects are not that bad.
*Overall the film portrays the heroics of the pilots and also the brutality of war. Worth watching. Its a bit like the kind of film you might catch at christmas!
