Review Just about everything in the video-gamey World War I picture "Flyboys" rings false, although the planes certainly are terrific. The film takes a strong subject, the Americans who volunteered for the French as aviators in the Lafayette Escadrille, and turns it into romantic slush. Good thing Jean Reno's around to give it some flavor: As the real-life Capt. Thenault, the stalwart French actor goes about his expositional business with gruff panache. You believe this man exists in a 1916 universe. Too many of the other, younger cast members are about as 1916 as "The O.C."...Leading a generic character roster, Franco's laconic Texan may be more smug than stalwart, but so is the movie. A tie-in Flyboys video game is now available, designed to coincide with the film's release. I guarantee that script will be better than this one.

Review "Flyboys" is an old-fashioned, boys' adventure version of an arresting chapter in World War I history about the enterprising bunch of young Americans who flew with the French before the United States entered the war. Lovingly and knowledgeably made by director Tony Bill, who got his pilot's license as a teenager, pic nonetheless has a lightweight, airbrushed feel; despite the brutal dogfights and inevitable deaths, there's little gravity or resonance...Franco's carryover James Dean posings early on serve his character's gruff coverup of a wounded soul, but the actor is best when he smiles and becomes personable...Shot in England, pic is handsomely and credibly appointed in all departments.
