I got my copy last Tuesday, but finally watched it this weekend. Yes,
the story is schmaltzy, and the Fokker Dr-Is are all red, and the in-air
footage is over-CGI laden. 

But the few scenes with the Sopwith Strutter are worth the price of the
DVD. TOTALLY.

I suppressed my sense of historical accuracy and actually enjoyed the
film.
