Tony Bill's FLYBOYS

By Dennis D. McDonald

I love airplane movies, but Flyboys is just plain awful. The Blue Max and the original Flight of the Phoenix -- both with strong dramatics and flying sequences --  put this current CGI-happy offering to shame.

The Flyboys' script is boring, the characters are dull, and the aerial sequences are just too video-gamey to believe.

Definitely a missed opportunity.
