Not to be confused with ‘The Flyboys’ released in 2008. To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for James Franco, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, have you noticed the amound of work done by James Franco?!? Indeed, he has already played in more than 60 movies, directed already a dozen of features, written several books, followed some classes in UCLA and NY, teached as well in NYU, was involved in some art projects,… The guy probably doesn’t sleep much, I guess. Anyway, as a result, not all his movies are amazing and this movie was a perfect example. Indeed, I really like James Franco and there were some nice aerial action scenes but that was it, I’m afraid. Indeed, the story and the directing were not really entertaining enough and, on top of that, the characters and the story were just full of clichés. To conclude, even though it wasn’t really awful, I thought it was pretty average and I don’t think it is really worth a look, except maybe if you are a die-hard fan of James Franco’s work.
