Red Tails
What it's about:

1944. To help win the war, the Pentagon brass has no choice but to consider the untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program.

Just as the young Tuskegee men are about to be shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. These intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country - and the fate of the free world.

What the critics said:

"Sadly, Red Tails tells its inspiring story in the most old-fashioned, Saturday-afternoon-at-the-movies kind of way. The movie occasionally flies but it never soars."
- Leah Rosen, The Wrap

"With an inspiring source story, talented actors, and one of the most profitable production companies backing the film, it's genuinely hard to imagine where it all went wrong."
- Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant

"The actors do their best, but the lines they have to deliver are toe-curlingly bad. Things get better when the planes are in the air, but the film's aerial dogfights are so blatantly computer-generated that the action fails to thrill."
- Jason Best, Movie Talk

"The true story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a squadron of African-American second world war flying aces, is one of those amazing tales that you just couldn't make up."
- Phelim O'Neill, Gaurdian (UK)


Courage has no color.
