The Good, the Bad and the Air Fighter:

• The movie is created with the noble intention of honouring China's aerial forces, but sadly, it is burden with several flaws that are hard to ignore.

• Considering that this is Li Chen's first venture as a film director, the flaws are understandable and since this is China's first aerial warfare film, it is at least a concept that is very fresh for the audience.

• The story however doesn't flow very smoothly, some parts are a bit rushed, and some doesn't connect to the next scene.

• It is quite disappointing that Fan Bingbing who is the most famous cast in the film had very small role in the movie, and the role doesn't go beyond the typical female love interest.

• But at least, the movie does have some nice humorous moments that will genuinely make you giggle.

Trivia:

• The SAM system used by the terrorists is the 9K37 Buk, the same missile system used to shoot down MH17 over Ukraine in 2014.
