1.0 out of 5 stars A Real Disappointment, 19 May 2013
This review is from: Red Tails [DVD] (DVD)
The story of the Tuskegee airmen lends itself to the making of an excellent film, but this is not it. The comic book script is laughable and the combat sequences are just like watching a thoroughly unrealistic CGI'd computer game. The impression that taking on the Luftwaffe was a piece of cake for a bunch of high spirited and apparently ill-disciplined young men is frankly insulting to the achievements of the young Afro-American pilots that were the real Tuskegee airmen. A P-51 turning a German destroyer (which looks remarkably like a battleship)into a flaming wreck with two passes of its machine guns gives you an idea of exactly how plausible this film is when it comes to the realities of war. Watch a decent documentary on the Red Tails instead. It's a far more moving and inspiring story than this rubbish.
