The Red Baron
Time Out says
There are moments when writer-director Nikolai Mullerschon protests too much, bending the truth in order to paint the infamous flying ace Von Richthofen (Matthias Schweighofer) as a noble sportsman at odds with the bloodthirsty aristocracy that spawned him. The decision to shoot the German cast in English was equally misguided: very little of the dialogue sounds natural or convincing.
But Mullerschon makes up for it with a series of superbly staged aerial sequences, seamlessly combining live photography and CGI to create a breathless, balletic buoyancy. So while the earthbound sequences may drag, when ‘The Red Baron’ takes to the skies, it soars.
