THE RED BARON (Theatrical Release Germany 2008)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

The Red Baron—has no reason for being—has no purpose. Little character development, uninteresting storyline, no significant events structure, no foundation and all this supports itself with sporadically, rather good acting. The movie deserves a re-make to correct these errors and make a movie that gives credit to the accomplishments of ‘The Red Baron’ during World War I.

Storyline

A story about a World War I fighter pilot.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Nikolai Müllerschön for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Ulrich Beck and Roland Pellegrino for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Young Manfred von Richthofen (Tomás Koutnik), Young Lothar von Richthofen (Tomás Ibl), Young Wolfram von Richthofen (Albert Franc), Manfred von Richthofen (Matthias Schweighöfer), Sternberg (Maxim Mehmet), Lehmann (Hanno Koffler), Voss (Til Schweiger), Hawker (Richard Krajco), and Brown (Joseph Fiennes).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. Fly Boys, a World War I movie, has a solid story and works at a higher entertainment level than this film.
