This is one of the most underrated films ever. Battle of Britain is agreat movie about the glorius British Royal Air Force in their famous haltto a German invasion and their ability to stop the Germans from Bombing thecities out of existance. Some of the special effects are kind of cheesy butthey didn't have Industrial Light and Magic. I'm very impressed about theCinematography by Freddie Young. Why didn't he receive an Oscar nomination?The aerial photography was excellent. One complaint I will make about theDVD version is that the Main Credits have been changed, The music wascredited to Sir William Walton in the DVD. On the VHS, Ron Goodwin composedthe score, I don't know why they changed this on the DVD. They also changedthe music at the end credits of the movie which I thought wasn't appropriatefor some reason. Other than that, this is a great movie with a greatcast.

I recently reviewed this film after having not seen it since it was new.Being a 31 year military veteran I have a somewhat different frame ofreference for watching films such as this. I look for things in a film manycivilians never will. I don't think this one has ever been shown on TV inthe US, at least not within a couple of decades, so it's certainly notoverplayed here. Luckily, the tape I accessed was in excellent condition soit was crisp and new in appearance. It is still a very excellent filmdepicting one of Britain's most harrowing times and the unwavering heroismof those who fought so desperately to secure their victory. The film didn'tenjoy many fine reviews when it was new as it was compared, as most warfilms are, to the plethora of fiction produced by the movie industry andREAL history usually comes off looking mundane by comparison. I have foundthis a similar oddity for many excellent films of war. This is one film thatmore than adequately stands the test of time and I would absolutely love tosee a wide-screen DVD version of it offered. Although it helps to have anunderstanding of war in general, and in particular the second world war andthe actual battle of britain, one can be ignorant of those facts and stillcome away well entertained. It is a wonderfully produced film, acted withtalent and grace by a cast of performers who are now legendary. The sets,costumes and musical score are wonderful and perfectly compliment thecinematography. If I can find a copy I am going to add it to mylibrary.
I first saw this movie in the theater in 1969. In the middle eighties I purchased the VHS tape for a whopping $69.95! I did this because I have been and remain a life long WW II addict. In my humble opinion this is the finest WW II Fighter movie ever made, bar none. Considering the constraints the movie makers were working under, their efforts resulted in a 99% historically correct movie. Only Tora Tora Tora is in this class. All of the of events, both RAF and Luftwaffe, are portrayed in their proper sequence. Every effort was made to show the correct aircraft. WW II crazies like me will recognize the minor errors and omissions i.e. no Bf-110's, Ju-88's, or Do-217's.
With superb casting there is no Hollywood overacting. The British audience also played a part as most of the survivors were alive and would have laughed a mediocre effort right out the theater. The furor created by the later production of A Piece of Cake will bear witness.
If you love high quality WW II movies and there certainly not enough of those you can't go wrong in purchasing a DVD copy.
