NON SPOILER SUMMARY

This is the story of the Memphis Belle, a World War II bomber plane with a crew of ten young men who make dangerous bombing missions into Europe. The plot is focused on these young men making their 25th mission, and if they complete it successfully, they will be finished with their duty in the war and be able to go home. The story hovers around them, their fear that their luck will run out, the way they work together, and the friendship and circumstances that bond them.

CIN’S REVIEW

Full of action, drama, and moving relationships, Memphis Belle is one to put on your list of movies to watch. This one has stood out in my mind since I first watched it in high school. It is inspired by true events, but many facts were changed in the movie.
