The 332nd Fighter Group, also known as The Tuskegee Airmen or Red Tails, made history both militarily and politically. In a segregated U.S Army during WWII they demonstrated their worth and showed the world that African-American pilots were every bit as good as those of other Allied and Axis nations. Their struggles and heroism had already been the subject of an earlier move called The Tuskegee Airmen, but surely this effort helmed by Anthony Hemmingway and overseen by George Lucas would be better? Well, sadly not! While the effects and aerial sequences are all amazing, the characters are one dimensional and the dialogue is corny. The film is watchable, but it really misses the opportunity to tell the full struggle of this group and glosses over the apalling racism and bigotry that these aviators and the segregated U.S Army were subjected to as a whole. The result is that what could have been the opportunity to tell this story correctly has been fumbled and the beautiful dogfighting P-40s, P-51s, B-17s, ME 109s and ME 262s sadly cannot save this movie from being anything more than an minor footnote. Unfortunate.
