Devotion movie
Posted by GMorrison on Sunday, November 6, 2022 3:10 PM

I just heard about this movie about to come out.

It's the story of Jesse Brown, hero in Korean War.

The web says that actual aircraft in the movie include an A-1 (AD), F4Us, F8F, Mig 15 and an HO5-S.

I look forward to seeing it.

I've seen the trailer multiple times, and it looks awesome. Anxiously waiting for it to arrive at the local Cinemark.

The aerial sequences look breathtaking and...best of all...didn't look entirely like CGI. Hoping for the best. Yes

What clues me to CGI is the way they move up and down without change in pitch angle and sideways without percievable yaw angle. Turbulence doesn't work like that.

Saw the movie today.  I went in knowing nothing about Jessie Brown, so as it turned out, this was an emotional gut-punch kind of movie.  But wow, Corsairs, Bearcats, Skyraiders OH MY!  And throw in that MiG-15 just for good measure.

I found it difficult to distinguish where real aircraft photography ended and CGI began.

I've got my ticket for tomorrow afternoon...can't wait! Yes

(BTW, I do already know a fair amount about his story. Interested to see how much they 'Hollywood' it up.)

Awesome film! Highly, highly recommended.

Clean and effective story-telling, without resorting to the 'soap opera' style drama seen in many of these sorts of films in recent years. The cast -- mostly slightly-familiar faces, to me, at least -- was superb. (The low-key, opposite-of-scenery-chewing performance by Thomas Sadoski as the unit CO was particularly effective...and moving.)

CGI was visible -- simply because I knew what to look for -- but overall pretty seamless, and never (in my opinion) descending to insulting 'video-game' levels. It all added to the story, rather than detracting from it.

One of those few films today where the audience -- mostly 40-and-above, I'd guess, rather than your typical superhero flick crowd -- actually spontaneously applauded at the end. Respect.

Saw it yesterday. It was pretty damn good, but not quite great. It's definitely one of the better Korean War movies out there, and doubly so being about a true story. It does me wondering about some depicted events, as well as the technical advisor (headgear when outdoors while in uniform). The ending sure does have emotional impact.

Great movie and a surprise to the amount of detail that was put into it.  

I was hoping Jesse Brown would someday get recognized.

The ending of Bridges at Toko-Ri sure was close to the story of Ens. Brown.

Hoping to go this Thursday!  I read the book by Adam Makos last year and have been waiting patiently for this movie to come out.  Does any company make decals in 1/32 for Jesse Brown's plane?

I know Cutting Edge did a 1/48 sheet some years ago with both Brown's and Hudner's a/c, but not sure about the larger scale. Truth be told, the squadron's a/c wore pretty 'standard' markings, so with a selection of letters and numbers most should be pretty easy to 'cobble up.'

Plus...if the film gets enough traction...some company may be chomping at the bit to release new sets in scales. Yes
