Italy, 1944. As the war takes its toll on Allied forces in Europe, a squadron of black pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen are finally given the chance
The chance to prove themselves in the sky.
As they battle discrimination on the ground.
It's supposed a tribute to the unsung heroes who rose above extraordinary challenges and ultimately soared into history, but it just turns out to be another awful CGI fest with sloppy editing, poor performances and some awful clichés.
Admittedly, the first five minutes of the film are quite impressive, but once one of the pilots goes looking for a woman he waves at as he flies past, you know it's not going to give you the tribute the story deserves.
The cast are awful, and it really Irks me to see Gooding Jr. as someone who stands there smoking a pipe that never has any tobacco in, looking all important, knowing that he has made the worse career decisions that any Hollywood star has in recent history.
Howard still looks frustrated about iron man, and the rest just stand around trying to say prolific things and offering lots of brotherly love.
But it's not the casts entire fault, the script is dire and the narrative is all over the shop, and because of that, you just stop caring about the film, and yearn for Memphis Belle.
Which is a shame, because it's such a fascinating story.
Thanks Lucas for ruining another story.
