Red Tails

The Digital Fix
28 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The Movie George Lucas finally got his WWII pet-project off the ground, so to speak, with the 2012 release of Red Tails . Director Anthony Hemingway's film focuses on the all-African-American cadre of fighter pilots - otherwise known as the Tuskegee Airmen - begrudgingly created by the USAAF in the...

  • Summary: One of the filmmakers remarks that this is not just a black story, but an American story. He’s right, and the film has plenty of the patriotic flair that we used to see in our war movies. Unfortunately, the film couldn’t sell its message at the box office.

  • Excerpt: It’s been seventy years since World War II and I’m perpetually amazed at how much influence it still has on our daily lives. Granted, the men who fought in the war are dwindling in numbers as the days pass and maybe it takes a movie like Red Tails to really show us how far we’ve come in that short...

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: The real story of the historical Tuskegee Airmen is just about as amazing as it gets - but 'Red Tails' isn't their story. No, it's contrived and dull. Just like the 'Star Wars' prequels, George Lucas having his hand in every part of this potentially fantastic story has ruined it.

Red Tails Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film How do you like that, Mr. Hitler? The Tuskegee Airmen have been the subject of films before -- with Cuba Gooding Jr., even. The most notable was probably 1995's The Tuskegee Airmen , an HBO film with the Oscar winner in a supporting role.

Cinema Blend
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: World War II has been so thoroughly mined by the movies that it's shameful to realize how few of them have focused on African-American soldiers. There's no doubt that the story in Red Tails , about a Tuskegee Airmen unit based in Italy, deserves to be told, but it's a shame this important bit of...

Red Tails Movie Review

  • Summary: Rather than spend the time to explore the rich history of the Tuskegee Airmen, the film goes for easy laughs and quick resolutions, making it feel like a cliche-ridden Lifetime movie.

Red Tails

AV Club
19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: About halfway through, Red Tails coughs up a memorable scene amid a lot of dull drama played out by unmemorable characters and not-so-impressive CGI dogfights. A group of the film’s heroes, the African-American World War II pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen, head into the Italian town near their...
