Movie Review: THE BLUE MAX vs. ACES HIGH

The War Movie Buff recently watched and reviewed The Blue Max and Aces High for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a sample:

The acting is much better in “Max” than “Aces”. “Max” is more of an actors’ movie because several of the characters are despicable – Stachel, Kaeti, and the General. The coupling of Bruno and Kaeti is one of two narcissists. Von Klugerman is your stock WWI politician/general.
