  1. laiila.carneiro's rating of the film Wings

    While the fight scenes were entertaining and really impressive for 1927, It wasn't what captivated me the most. It was the romance. Oh! don't get me wrong! I'm not talking about Mary and Jack. Not even David and Sylvia. No! these were predictable and boring. But David and Jack, on the other hand, a masterpiece. Maybe because enemies to lovers is my favourite trope, but the chemistry between them was undeniable.

  3. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Wings

    It sure has the budget, the effects and the travelling, but it's doesn't have the talent or the ability to string scenes or shots in an efficient manner. For a war movie, Wings just doesn't know what it's going for, sometimes borrowing elements from burlesque comedy and Hollywood glamour. It can only stage and understand the horrors of war in the very last quarter - just to undermine such moments right after.

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Wings

    Another amazing film by Wellman and amazing flight/combat scenes of WW1 which were only recently bested by Dunkirk. As much as I love Bow, which is a lot, she feels miscast here. Ralston, having moved up from Lloyd comedies, has a far more interesting part. All the men feel interchangeable, including Cooper in his brief cameo. Great war film, but overly happy given the grimness. Big Parade was better. 4 stars though

  5. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Wings

    The strength of this multiple Oscar-winning-Hollywood-classic is obviously not its script. The writting is conventionnal, the twists predictable. But the oh very spectacular direction of Wellman and the fight scenes (were are in 1927 for God sake !) are highly entertaining. Cinema as spectacle at its best. With big screen, good laughs, some sad bits, nice camaraderie. Gary Cooper makes a noticeable 3 minutes cameo.

  6. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Wings

    The first ever 'best picture' winner. A great example of strong cinematography, with the exceptional aerial shots, tracking shots and chemistry between Richard Arlen and Charles Rogers. One of the most ambitious winners the Oscars ever produced.

  7. Iulia Necsulescu's rating of the film Wings

    they shot in real planes. with the real actors driving the planes and acting at the same time. in fucking 1927. just think about that.

  8. Aardsy's rating of the film Wings

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Wings

    Un splendide chef-d'oeuvre du cinéma muet américain, conjuguant avec dextérité et finesse, de magnifiques et saisissantes prises de vue de combats aériens, avec une permanente et diffuse émotion en filigrane non dépourvue d'humour et de légèreté...

  10. Balthaz21's rating of the film Wings

  11. El Biffo's rating of the film Wings

    American blockbuster war picture sufficiently violent to garner an Academy Award, overrated as are most winners of an Oscar for Best Picture. The aerial dogfight scenes may be of interest to some folks, and there is a nice macho tearjerker ending to round it out as above-average standard Hollywood fare. For a more meaningful picture of WWI, see Abel Gance's J'ACCUSE.

  13. greers's rating of the film Wings


  14. fardian's rating of the film Wings

    advance air fight technique in that time. mind someone tell me how did they shot it?

  15. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Wings

    How to do the shot dissection of an air/space battle sequence. Also, mindless triumphalism struggles with painful brutality and fatalism and both positions get a share of the film.

  16. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Wings

    1927, dir. WILLIAM A. WELLMAN - 8/10 (USA) ["Best Picture" Academy Award Winner of 1927]

  17. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Wings

    Amazing flight scenes. While the couple Clara Bow/Charles 'Buddy' Rogers is uninteresting to say the least, let's focus our attention on Richard Arlen and Jobyna Ralston whose mysterious love is enthralling. Highly recommended.

  18. Luana Frez Ichikawa's rating of the film Wings

  19. Maxim Chernykh's rating of the film Wings

    Production, production and more production. And Gary Cooper.

  20. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Wings

    No hay duda que lo mejor de "Wings" son las secuencias de dogfights. Aeroplanos y pilotos vistos en primeros planos y generales contempla lo verídico del filme. Un travelling frontal que atraviesa la mesas, pompas de burbujas (con un Charles Buddy Rogers que en realidad estaba ebrio), un topless de Clara Bow, un beso masculino, son escenas que también se recuerdan.

  21. Julia Miville's rating of the film Wings

    This is one of the most beautifully shot sight films I have ever seen.

  22. Elvis Is King's rating of the film Wings

    Best DVD/Blu-Ray restoration of a silent film I've come across. Jaw dropping. Even includes hand-painted fire and muzzle-flashes in the battle sequences.

  23. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Wings

    Gary Cooper and the Flying Circus or How I Learned to Stop Worrying about Censorship and Love Clara Bow's Bubbles.

  24. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Wings

    While it's a bit overlong and the dialogue could use work (ex. Jack's inebriated love for bubbles), the aerial battles are outstanding and are worth seeing.
