James Bond-flick director Guy Hamilton helmed this episodic, all-star World War II film. With Sir Laurence Olivier heading up an ensemble cast as flight commander Sir Hugh Dowdling, The Battle of Britain pays tribute to other nationalities instrumental in fending off the waves of Luftwaffe planes, notably the expatriate Polish and Czech pilots. Trevor Howard, Michael Caine, and Michael Redgrave also populate the cast. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Succeeds in giving the general impression of a pivotal historical moment, and excels in crafting some of the most astonishing aerial-warfare sequences ever put on film. [Blu-Ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"An all-star ensemble cast consisting of the who's who of British films can't save the war epic from being a bore."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Surprisingly flat considering the talent involved."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
