I watched this yesterday and was disappointingly underwhelmed. The start of the film was very impressive but once the war finished I found that I really started to lose interest. It is impressive from a technical point of view but I found the story itself to be uninteresting - a very unfair comparison but I kept thinking of how much better Poul Anderson's Twilight World novel was in dealing with a similar re-building situation.
Plus there was an unsavory tone to the celebration of the 'we don't like individuality' attitude of the Wings Over The World that really seemed at odds with the traditional sci-fi concept of peacefully benign but dictatorial false utopias.
No doubt a landmark film but a studious watch rather than an entertaining one.
