On New Year's Eve 1944, American pilot Mike Clarke inadvertently bets Al Capone's nephew $10,000.00 that he can shoot down five enemy aircraft. Later, forced to land near a remote village in Ireland after running out of fuel, Mike learns that he is cut off from the rest of the world with no way to rejoin the war and shoot down his fifth plane, which is the only way he can win the bet and save his own life. With nowhere to go, he eventually befriends the colorful villagers and meets a fiery red-head named Maggie who shows this pilot that combat can take place on the ground just as well as in the air. It doesn't take long for Mike and Maggie to grow close as she helps him figure out how to win his bet while winning her heart in the process

Joanna C (ca) wrote: Honestly better than twilight. I've read the book and while some parts related to the movie including the title, others were things they failed to put in. Because they changed parts of the movie that didn't follow the book, it was like the plot was rushed. It lacked emotional connection with some of the characters. At some points it got a bit predictable and cliche. But I did like the chemistry between Clary and Jace.

David M (fr) wrote: Definitely a movie of two parts: the slow and plodding earth-bound romance, and the better (if somewhat samey) aerial action sequences. I have to say, though, that those planes seemed to be diving, climbing and generally perfoming more like jet fighters than propellor-driven early bi and tri planes ...

Jeff B (us) wrote: Wonderful performances and wonderful music in a film that imitates the pop-music sounds of the 60's and 70's through the lens of a fictional songwriter. I love how it focuses on the aspect of music-creation more than any other "bio-pic" I've ever seen. Good stuff from Illeana Douglas, who really shines in the only starring role I've ever seen her in.

Arif S (au) wrote: Frears, Molina, OLDMAN. Need I go on? Alright, I will. Definitely one of the darkest films I've seen by Frears, though he succeeds in capturing the wild and free sides of Orton and his Halliwell, it also nails their dark sides, and there's a cold and chilling atmosphere throughout the entire film, almost depressing. It captured the essence of their lives amazingly. So well, in fact, that it's almost difficult to understand their relationship, because it's such a complex one. Oldman and Molina are at the top of their game here, as Oldman is tamer here than he usually is wheras Molina is demented and disturbed. It definitely leaves you chilled and haunted, thinking about its dark and brutal finish long after the film has ended.
