Official Trailer for Battle of Britain Raf Pilots Film 'Mission of Honor'

"Get 303 up, now!" Cinedigm has released an official trailer for an indie action thriller film titled Mission of Honor, about a group of brave, determined Polish pilots in the Raf during World War II. The film was originally titled just Hurricane, but has been retitled for its Us release. Mission of Honor is the story of Squadron 303, a group of heroic pilots who fought in the skies over England in the Battle of Britain. The squadron consisted of Polish pilots, many of whom were veterans of the air battles involved in Germany's invasion of Poland. Equipped with nothing more than obsolete Raf planes and secondhand uniforms, they flew for all of those who had become casualties in one tyrant's quest for power. The film stars Iwan Rheon, Milo Gibson, Stefanie Martini, Krystof Hádek, Marcin Dorocinski, Manuel Klein, and Raphael Desprez. This looks exactly as it sounds, if anyone is

‘Anthropoid’ review: “Some of the most thrilling moments in cinema this year.”

Anthropoid review: A thrilling and powerful war film that doesn’t shy away from difficult themes such as the repercussions of heroics.

Anthropoid review by Luke Ryan Baldock.

Anthropoid review

Sean Ellis arrived 10 years ago with the wonderful little film Cashback, a feature based on his own award winning short which was both smart and original. Anthropoid, his fourth feature, couldn’t be further from his humble beginnings, yet clearly shows a man with a firm grip on all things cinematic. Telling the true tale of World War II’s most important assassination, it is also a fresh look at events that is neither too afraid to question morality and heroism in war, nor too quaint to make some of its sequences, for lack of a better word, entertaining.

Set in 1942, we follow two parachutists who return to Czechoslovakia after the controversial Munich Agreement, who have orders to assassinate Hitler

Anthropoid Trailer Stars Cillian Murphy And Jamie Dornan As World War II Assassins

The first trailer for World War II thriller Anthropoid has arrived online, starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan as two Czech operatives tasked with the assassination of an SS officer.

With the movie set to arrive later this summer, it’s a wonder why we’ve heard so little about it until now – especially with a trailer that’s this intriguing. Cashback director Sean Ellis sits at the helm of this espionage pic, whose title refers to a specific mission where two operatives set about hunting down one of Hitler’s highest-ranking officials, SS Reinhard Heydrich. While the cinematic canon includes a lot of World War II thrillers, and many that involve espionage, Anthropoid looks like it’s planning to pack quite a punch thanks to the performances of its strong acting line-up.

Speaking of the cast, Murphy and Dornan are joined by a stellar support roster that includes Toby Jones,

‘Jack Strong’ Review

Stars: Marcin Dorocinski, Maja Ostaszewska, Patrick Wilson, Dimitri Bilov, Dagmara Dominczyk, Oleg Maslennikov | Written and Directed by Wladyslaw Pasikowski

The IMDb synopsis for Jack Strong describes the film as a “gripping spy thriller” that “tells the true story of a man who dares to challenge the Soviet empire.” While it’s true that the story involves spies, soviets and men, there’s not a great that’s daring, gripping or thrilling in this meandering yet overwrought snoozefest.

The Cold War is a rich seam for stories that has quite possibly been excavated of all its jewels at this point (mainly by John le Carré and Stanley Kubrick), so a plot involving state secrets being passed from Russia-controlled Poland to the slickly-suited USA has me stifling a yawn from the opening credits on. “Jack Strong” is the codename given to the Polish colonel disenfranchised by his Communist overlords and embarks upon

Review: Emotional Drama Loving Searches For Truth About The Mechanics Of Love

In an impassioned and perceptive manner, Loving (Milosc) breaks down the essence of a marriage on the verge of collapse. The sharply-written script goes beyond the surface in order to expose all the ingredients crucial for the formation and further development of a full-bodied relationship. Basing its premise on the foundation that even the slightest alteration in the trajectory of a seemingly blissful marriage might have catastrophic consequences, the film gives way to a slow-burn examination of the characters' inability to cope with a sudden tragedy that strikes violently like a bolt from the blue.In a small town somewhere in Poland, a couple is expecting their first child. Maria (Julia Kijowska) and Tomek (Marcin Dorocinski) are at that point in their married life where even such common...

Kinoteka 2013: 'Manhunt' review

  • CineVue
★★★☆☆ Having recently found himself in harsh and grim post-war Poland for Wojciech Smarzowski's sombre Rose (Róza, 2011), Marcin Dorocinski is back again in award-winning wartime drama, Manhunt (Oblawa, 2012). On this occasion, he is part of the Polish resistance during the conflict rather then attempting to build a life after it, but the results are similarly bleak in Marcin Krzysztalowicz's third feature film. A compelling central presence the thespian may once again prove to be, but the overall film is too confused to be truly powerful despite its unflinching portrayal of the varying greys of conflict morality.

Spies Of Warsaw part 1 review

Review Louisa Mellor Jan 10, 2013

David Tennant stars in BBC Four two-parter Spies Of Warsaw, adapted from Alan Furst's 2008 novel...

This review contains spoilers.

Title-wise, Spies of Warsaw doesn’t mess about. No figurative Parade’s End or The Crimson Petal and the White evasion for this BBC period adaptation; it’s a story about spies, in Warsaw. Specifically, it’s a story about a French spy - David Tennant’s Jean-François Mercier - in 1937 Warsaw, so is packed with European interbellum angst and dramatic irony of the ‘Bah! Germany won’t attack France through Belgium!’ sort.

Part one sees Col. Mercier, a widowed French noble turned spy, posing as attaché to the Embassy while attempting to uncover German invasion plans. When he’s not burrowing under enemy barbed wire or getting in punch-ups with would-be kidnappers, Mercier spends his time exuding twentieth century ennui at expensive drinks parties and making
