So bad its comical,
This review is from: Red Tails (Blu-ray)
Had reasonably high hopes for this film having been impressed by the trailers of aerial combat. Unfortunately that's the only bit they got right - the combat scenes / special effects are pretty good but the rest of the film is awful. It has the worst acting I've ever seen in a film, so bad it makes you wince. The script is clunky and misfires at every turn. The editing is terrible - during scenes where you are looking at pilots in cockpits, one pilot will speak, then there is a 2 second gap before the camera cuts to the next pilot who replies. And towards the end, during the final mission which is the culmination of the whole film where the pilots get to provide fighter cover for a bomber mission to Berlin - one of the team dies, and you never even get to find out what happened to the bomber mission - its totally ignored.
Such a shame as the subject matter was really interesting and it could have been a good movie, given the budget that was obviously lavished on the effects.
