  • Red Tails - A fictitious story about the Tuskegee airmen

    Jul 11, 2012 by phungus is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice visuals, lots of action
    Cons: Weak dialogue

    Summary: Ever since it was released, I’ve never heard anything overly good about Red Tails. It has a strong association with George Lucas, and that surely got it some extra attention, but otherwise it has been picked apart by critics and fans alike. ... read more

  • Chaotic

    Jul 9, 2013 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Based on Historical Events
    Cons: Chaotic, Unappealing, and Predictable

    Summary: "Red Tails" is a movie that chronicles the Tuskegee Airmen unit in World War II. Though based on a good historical story, the movie falls flat. The story tries to follow many different stories at the same time. This technique feels choppy and has ... read more

  • No Turning Tail A review of Red Tails

    Jan 3, 2013 by Diversity646 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Exciting combat sequences and compelling characters and a cast you can root for.
    Cons: Some of the outcomes are WAY too predictable.  Call them "cliched".

    Summary: Summary:  An inspiring story of black pilots during World War II who fought bravely and honorably in the skies during the German offensive. George Lucas executive produced this movie.  So, it is natural that some of the scenes ... read more

  • Great Movie

    Dec 7, 2012 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The characters are well developed and it has a good premise.
    Cons: It is very predictable and almost from the start you know what will happen.

    Summary: I saw this movie with my family about a week ago and loved it! You get very attached to the characters and it is also very sad. I don't want to give anything away, but it was well put together and the storyline is good too. At this price, it is well ... read more

  • All Negro 332nd Fighter Group

    Mar 27, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Exciting dogfights.
    Cons: We're never told whether the new P-51s have the Merlin engines in them.

    Summary: Out of the frying pan, into the fire.  Italy, 1944. The 332nd fighter group flying "P-40s from Uncle Sam's junkyard" are doing "strafing runs and coastal patrols" ("Con­grat­ulations, kids, you killed your­self a truck.") ... read more

  • "Red Tails" - Soars in the Air, Sinks on the Ground

    Jan 25, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fantastic visuals and aerial action sequences.
    Cons: Cliched, derivative war story and characters. No real resolution. Predictable as could be.

    Summary: When one thinks of or hears the name 'George Lucas', instantly thoughts of something 'Star Wars' or 'Indiana Jones'-related may pop into their head. And that's for very good reason: that's how Lucas has made his wealth and his name in the film ... read more

  • Tuskegee Airmen Get the "John Wayne Treatment"

    Jan 23, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Outstanding graphics; inspiring moments
    Cons: Comic-book script; missed opportunities

    Summary: The good news: George Lucas did not direct or write this "all-black action movie" about the Tuskegee Airmen. The bad news: You might not notice the difference. Going in, I knew what to expect: a shoot-em-up war movie with the tone of propaganda films of ... read more

  • "RED TAILS": EXCITING, FLAWED VIEW OF WWII HEROES

    Jan 21, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great air fight scenes, good acting
    Cons: "Side" stories were a little weak to me

    Summary: I wanted to see this film when I first heard about it.  I saw George Lucas (the producer of the movie) on Jon Stewart's show and he pointed out that he has wanted to make this film since 1988 but nobody thought an "all-black" cast could be ... read more

    Pros: African American men persevered and did there job and helped in the world war ii.
    Cons: It's nothing I disliked about the movie, it is the best remake what really happened.

    Summary: This is an awesome movie for anybody to see.  It showed the intelligence of the African American men and how much they were needed in that time of segregation.  They were rearly being called on to help during the World War II, but when that day ... read more
