Italy, 1944. As the war takes its toll on Allied forces in Europe, a squadron of black pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen are finally given the chance to prove themselves in the sky, even as they battle discrimination on the ground. Featuring jaw-dropping aerial action and thrilling special effects, Red Tails is a breathtaking tribute to the unsung heroes who rose above extraordinary challenges and ultimately soared into history.

Good movie! I am a fighter pilot at heart and I thoroughly enjoyed the dogfights. Special effect by Lucas were good too.This movie tells rather accurately what the Tuskegee Airmen faced.

The first few seconds had me worried....it looked like a CGI video game. But held back from pressing STOP and eventually realized this was a very good movie. The CGI, not perfect, was pretty realistic. The dialogue was sometimes trite, and characters were stock, but despite all that the movie still won me over with it's realism (not too graphic), the fear and risks. One of the best war movies ever.

Guess you can watch this movie either as an action movie or as an historical movie. I am a war buff so it is a good action movie based on historical facts, but it does show the real struggle of these airmen. 3 stars for the action movie, 2 stars for the historical content...

This was a very good movie about the black airmen that fought in WWII in Italy. They stood strong under adverse conditions as they wanted to prove to their white counterparts that they could do anything that their counterparts could do, maybe even better. They finally got their chance to prove that, even though they would lose some of their comrades in the process. It was also refreshing to see that their counterparts finally recognize them for their talents and skills in the air.

Utterly ridiculous and completely divergent from history. I truly hope that none of the real Tuskegee airmen saw this movie. The special effects are good and Lucas does get credit for that, but the plot and realism are horrible. I hope to god that future generations of African American children will skip this movie and instead pick up a book and learn of the real trials and tribulations of their elders. Don't waste your time.
