The Battle of Britain is a classic movie about one of the key battles of World War 2. It stands up there with the epics The Longest Day, Tora,Tora, Tora and a Bridge Too Far. The all-star cast has well known and lesser known English, Canadian, German and others actors who play their roles well. The movie does a good job of portaying both sides of the battle. The special effects and the air battles hold up well after well over 30 years. The criticisms that people have to me are quite unfair. As for charcter development, the movie is about the battle, much like the Longest Day was and there was no time to develop that part of the movie because it focused on the entirety of the battle. Also this is not like Cross of Iron that someone compared it to. Cross of Iron was a fictious story, while this is done in semi-docudrama style.It is an unfair comparison. The best comparison would be with the three previously listed movies. I liked that fact that some big stars characters did get hurt or died just like many of the better pilots did in the the battle and the war. The movie gives an excellent overview of the battle, much like the other movies listed here. I like the fact about the bit of English snobbery concerning the foreign pilots that they were training even if some were as good or better than they were.This is a four star war movie obout Britains Finest Hour. Where if it wasn't for the Brits holding off the German's, the Allies would not have been able to launch D-Day against the German's. The movie showed bravery and courage from both sides men and pilots. It is a great portrayal of young men in battle as knights of the early war skies. Rent it or buy it, because this is a classic.

A Classic!!!Reviewed bysawyertomVote: 7/10
I first saw this movie in the theater in 1969. In the middle eighties I purchased the VHS tape for a whopping $69.95! I did this because I have been and remain a life long WW II addict. In my humble opinion this is the finest WW II Fighter movie ever made, bar none. Considering the constraints the movie makers were working under, their efforts resulted in a 99% historically correct movie. Only Tora Tora Tora is in this class. All of the of events, both RAF and Luftwaffe, are portrayed in their proper sequence. Every effort was made to show the correct aircraft. WW II crazies like me will recognize the minor errors and omissions i.e. no Bf-110's, Ju-88's, or Do-217's.
With superb casting there is no Hollywood overacting. The British audience also played a part as most of the survivors were alive and would have laughed a mediocre effort right out the theater. The furor created by the later production of A Piece of Cake will bear witness.
If you love high quality WW II movies and there certainly not enough of those you can't go wrong in purchasing a DVD copy.
This is one of the most underrated films ever. Battle of Britain is agreat movie about the glorius British Royal Air Force in their famous haltto a German invasion and their ability to stop the Germans from Bombing thecities out of existance. Some of the special effects are kind of cheesy butthey didn't have Industrial Light and Magic. I'm very impressed about theCinematography by Freddie Young. Why didn't he receive an Oscar nomination?The aerial photography was excellent. One complaint I will make about theDVD version is that the Main Credits have been changed, The music wascredited to Sir William Walton in the DVD. On the VHS, Ron Goodwin composedthe score, I don't know why they changed this on the DVD. They also changedthe music at the end credits of the movie which I thought wasn't appropriatefor some reason. Other than that, this is a great movie with a greatcast.
