633 Squadron / Mosquito Squadron / Battle Of Britain DVD
Mosquito Squadron: David McCallum ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E.") stars in an epic adventure that balances large-scale spectacle with searing human drama, perfectly capturing the explosive action and emotional torment of war. With its astonishing special effects, stark cinematography and brilliantly choreographed aerial combat sequences, The Mosquito Squadron catapults the viewer into the searing heat of battle. As Allied forces struggle against the awesome might of the German Luftwaffe, an even greater threat is posed by the destructive V3 Rocket, which is nearing completion at a secret testing centre. It's up to the RAF's Mosquito Squadron to destroy the site, but its leader, Quint Monroe, faces a conflict when he makes a grim discovery. An air strike may kill hundreds of British POWS - including the squad's former commander! Battle Of Britain: Featuring a stellar cast, including Michael Caine, Trevor Howard, Laurence Olivier, Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave and Robert Shaw, Susannah York and edward Cox, Battle Of Britain is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war. But when the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied insurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe, they may well have altered the course of history! 633 Squadron: Excitement, adventure, derring-do and courage in the war-torn skies over northern Europe are the perfect ingredients for this pulse-pounding World War II air drama. Two Academy Award winners headline the solid cast: Cliff Robertson (Best Actor, Charly, 1968) and George Chakiris (Best Supporting Actor, West Side Story, 1961). Robert, an avid flyer in real life, plays a combat-weary pilot whose R.A.F squadron is ordered on an apparent suicide mission to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel plant tucked deep into a Norwegian Fjord. Chakiris portrays a resistance fighter whose fate numbers among the many ironies in the expertly written screenplay. To make the film, which is based on a true story, a squadron of legendary Mosquito fighter-bombers was resurrected from near extinction. Dazzling flying sequences, bone-shaking sound and superb special effects help make this one of the most realistic combat films ever to reach the screen.
