To be honest, for some reasons, I have never been really attracted by this movie. It probably had to do with its title. Indeed, on one hand, it was annoyingly patriotic and, on the other hand, it is simply plain lame.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1980's) (153 movies items)

" Notes: This movie seemed to have such a decent reputation as it had been nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award and according to Roger Ebert, it was even the best movie made in the 80's, only behind ‘Raging Bull’. Well, eventually, I thought it was actually a rather weird movie. The beginning, focusing on Yeager, was actually quite awesome and uplifiting thanks to a fine performance by Sam Shephard. But, for some reason, this awesome character was somehow dropped after 45 minutes and"
