What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Film doesn't quite get off the ground.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Red Tails is entertaining. Audiences are likely to enjoy it. The scenes of aerial combat are skillfully done and exciting. It makes the point that the airmen were skilled and courageous, and played a historic role in the eventual integration of our armed services.
C. Fuchs A film only produced by George Lucas but one that feels, looks and sounds a lot like a WWII version of Star Wars, in ways both good and bad.
Tomatometer Despite a worthy fact-based story and obvious good intentions, Red Tails suffers from one-dimensional characters, corny dialogue, and heaps of clichés.
