StevenF Review of Mission of Honor

The film Mission of Honor was released on March 15, 2019. It is based on a true story concerning the 303 Squadron RAF which was composed of Polish pilots. This squadron helped win the Battle of Britain by downing the most German planes during the war.

I have never heard this story before and I thought it was fairly well done. There were plenty of aerial battles which kept my interest. I am not knowledgeable about aircraft but apparently there were some misrepresentations about British planes capabilities. The acting was fairly decent. The CGI was adequate as well as the directing. Sadly, the Polish pilots were portrayed as a bunch of drunken louts and not well received by British pilots. Both, from what I read, were not true.

It is sad when a true story of other’s bravery is portrayed in this manner. I blame the director and the scriptwriters for these fictional aspects. Iwan Rheon and Stephanie Martini were the main characters of the film and they were excellent. There are some subtitles for Polish, French, and German scenes but most of the film was in English. I give this 4 out of 5 stars.

    A British film, ugg. Although there were many good officers in England at the time of WWII, the pilots lived by the day, and at night they got drunk. Why? Because they didn’t know if they would get home the next day. We know this for a fact.

    But here they portray the best unit the RAF had, like a bunch of drunks and the English were saints. I am not buying that story. Yes, indeed the Polish drank. But they didn’t have pubs all over their country as the English did. Then the ending tore me up, but you will have to watch it to see why.

    War is hell and too many died protecting something that wasn’t worth protecting. Regardless of who is in charge, to this day, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, but it is the poor that are sent to die in wars.
    Still, I rate the movie 4 out of 5.
