Review: "The Blue Angels"

It's not quite like being at a live performance of this elite flying team, but this film -- especially the limited IMAX release -- is sure to thrill fans with its cockpit views of in-air maneuvers. Fans and the curious will also get a lot out of the interviews and behind-the-scenes insights into the preparation and work that goes into the tradition of The Blue Angels.

The film, however, isn't for those with only a passing interest in the elite flyers and could feel to some like propaganda for the team and the military in general. We don't get a ton of insight into the personal lives or backgrounds of these men, nor what drives them beyond perfecting their performance. There's a definite Top Gunair to the proceedings, heightened by a rousing Hans Zimmer-produced score.
