Given a chance to prove their worth on aerial battle, a group of African- American pilots are about to prove themselves that even they struggle racial discrimination on land, they can and will fight on war. *** This was a great surprise to me. I never expected that this movie could be this good and heartwarming. I even enjoy the aerial war. I can feel the characters, thus, I would say that the cast performed well. I also love the story, not a feel-good film but I felt the touching parts and the depth of the storyline. One thing I hate about this film: OPENING CREDITS

I went into this with major trepidation, and while it wasn't as bad as I was expecting, Lucas still doesn't have an ear for dialogue and the characters were all cliche. The actual dog fights are a lot of fun - but the movie just doesn't address the many issues the Tuskegee Airmen faced, and in the end, it's just another war film with little bite.

Great wouldve been better if Lucas directed

First let me start by saying i simply loved this film! Now as to why the ultimate master of directing sci fi today as we know it George Lucas would produce and not direct and putting in the director's chair a newbie more or less. Now lets not put any bad conatations on the word newbie(if thats a word that is?) As director Anthony Hemingway has directed alot of good tv shows throught his career so far and assisted the director on a few big screen movies however this is his first where he is the director alone. Well not so alone as i'm sure Lucas was beside him most of the time. This was i quote supposed to be the film Lucas always wanted to make!! The point i am trying to make is although a good film it couldve been spectacular!!

The storyline was great as a biopic (If that's what t...

Booo!!

I hated this movie. You have a handful of talented actors that aren't asked to do much, along with a laughably, horrendously cheesy script and underdeveloped characters. It's a shame because you have such a great, inspirational story put on display, but it's told in the completely wrong way. It reminded me a lot of Michael Bay's WW2 film Pearl Harbor, though this is much worse. Most of the performances are stale and unintentionally funny, the script is horrendous and corny beyond belief, and the movie, as a whole, is just a big, boring, joyless mess. Executive producer George Lucas (Star Wars) calls this movie his dream project, faithfully handing the script over to Anthony Hemingway so he can direct it. Lucas is really letting me down.

The aerial battle scenes lacked tension and exci...

The Crash and Burn of Red Tails

According to several articles I have read lately, it has been George Lucas’ intention to make a film about the Tuskagee Airmen since the 1980’s, but he hasn’t been able to find a studio that would support it, claiming that audiences wouldn’t be interested in seeing a movie with an all black cast. I don’t know if they really believed that or if they were just too afraid to tell George that his script was corny and disappointing, but whatever the case may be, Mr. Lucas had to fund the project with his own spare change…no doubt last Tuesday’s Star Wars action figure sales covered it nicely.

THE GOOD: If you are unfamiliar with the premise of this film, it recounts the history of the first African American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces—the Tuskagee Airmen, who fough...
