Becky and I went to see Flyboys a couple weeks ago at the Galaxy Neonopolis 11 theaters in Las Vegas, Nevada with Becky’s Mom & Dad, Betty and David Smith.
This was a new movie and the movie was almost empty, but there was a crazy lady in the theater that kept talking to the screen. I thought she was pretty funny, but she drove Becky nuts, which made the situation even more funny. The Yahoo! website at Flyboys describes the movie as follows:
“ In 1914, “The Great War” –WWI–began in Europe. By 1917, the Allied powers of France, England, Italy and others were on the ropes against the German juggernaut. Some altruistic young Americans disagreed with the war. They volunteered to fight alongside their counterparts in France; some in the infantry, some in the Ambulance Corps. A handful of others had a different idea: they decided to learn how…”
Flyboys is a great flick! The acting was great, the story was good and it really kept our interest. The audience was small, making the viewing more like a private screening, with some real characters in the theater, that made it feel like we were watching it on a big screen tv.
The film will really make you appreciate the sacrifices that men and women made during World War I to defend freedom. I think that we often forget how many people died during World War I and World War II, so that others could live. One of the strongest statements in this film was that the average life expectancy for a new fighter pilot in the first World War was only 6 weeks.
This is one that you can definitely check out on the Big Screen and feel like you didn’t waste your money.
