There isn't a literary line in Air Force; and there isn't a phony character. Full Review
Esquire Magazine

Rating: 4/5 -- Although it draws about the longest and most pliant bow that has ever been drawn in the line of fanciful war films and goes completely overboard in the last reel, it is still a continuously fascinating, frequently thrilling and occasionally exalting show. Full Review

Howard Hawks finds a perfect vehicle for his study of the male group. William Faulkner polished the dialogue, but as a silent it would still be tremendously exciting and evocative. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Gritty, emotional actioner made at height of WWII. Strong cast.
Mar 6, 2008
Rating: 66/100 -- It isn't one of the director's most impressive outputs, but when a solid genre entry such as this is one of your "lesser" films, it says a lot about the quality of your work. Full Review

Rating: 6/10 -- Air Force can't escape the shadow of its own jingoism. Its point wasn't just to inspire an American public but to make monsters of its enemies. It did so with chilling efficiency. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- The versatile Howard Hawks combines personal experience and knowing skills in directing this enjoyable WWII propaganda movie, which was nominated for four Oscars, winning one for editing. Full Review
