Donner Pass has a well-known and macabre history - the place where George Donner and his party got stuck in the winter of 1846 and were forced to resort to cannibalism to keep from starving. But what if it wasn't just history?

During WWII, a pilot and her crew carry a small group of American soldiers and an unknown cargo. However they get caught in a storm and they are forced to land in what is thought to be enemy territory. But the small island they land on holds more than men with guns.
The truck used to move the fuel was an Allied truck (complete with Allied Star on hood). The island they were on was a Japanese occupied base, supplied with A6M Zero planes. B-29 should be the only Allied vehicle on the island. See more »
Warbirds from the premise actually seemed as though it would be an interesting movie. But as it is with most SyFy movies, it was the execution that sank it, with the only redeeming value being the performance of Brian Krause. The costumes and what not also don't look too bad but I never found them properly authentic. The dull lighting and opposite-from-slick filming don't help, and I'd also say the same for the lazy direction and the artificial-looking and un-menacing(though there are definitely much worse around) monsters. Warbirds suffers further from a banal script full of cheesy jargon and clichéd lines, stereotypical characters and a dull, predictable story where suspension of disbelief is necessary. The acting apart from Krause is stiff and unemotive, in short pretty terrible. All in all, really bad, not one of SyFy's very worst but of the ones seen in the past month Warbirds was one of my least favourites. 1/10 Bethany Cox
