Critics reviews

The other Great War films of the period—ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, THE DAWN PATROL, THE LAST FLIGHT—doubtless have much more on their minds than HELL’S ANGELS could ever feign, yet Hughes’s epic possesses an immediacy, a vulgar species of intimacy, that stands alone. Ultimately, Hughes’s self-serious pursuit of realism makes for the daffiest science fiction of the day.
