Red Tails

High octane and daring dogfights


Red Tails
Another ra-ra Go America war yarn from George Lucas, this time focusing on a relatively unknown squadron of Black American pilots operating in Italy. As the war continues to take its toll on Allied Forces in Europe, the Pentagon brass, desperate to protect their dwindling numbers of bombers look to an option previously considered unthinkable. At long last they give The Tuskegee Airmen the chance to prove themselves in battle and forever put to rest the misplaced belief that blacks lacked the courage, discipline and intelligence to be fighter pilots. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these young airmen take to the skies to show what they can do.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconFilm doesn't quite get off the ground.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconRed 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.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconA 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 quote iconDespite a worthy fact-based story and obvious good intentions, Red Tails suffers from one-dimensional characters, corny dialogue, and heaps of clichés.
