Flyboys appears to be all about old World War I planes and the handsome pilots who flew them, but there's not much of a script here, the critics indicate. Indeed, Michael Booth in the Denver Post lifts quotes from the dialogue to describe just how bad he believes the movie is: "'It's a beautiful country. I can see why the French fight for it.' And, 'Every time I go up, I'm afraid.' Or, 'You can either join in, or go up to your room and cry like a little baby.' Wait, there's more. 'So you're a prostitute? You don't look like one.' ... 'I'll give you a half-hour to get out of town.' OK, that's enough, you're already reaching for the air-sickness bag and you haven't even met the Black Falcon yet."

The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
