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.
- It's movie review time again! Everyone, everyone! You must see Red Tails. It was amazing, historically based and heart touching. The black pilots were treated like dirt until the white ones saw their talent and how they saved American lives. It's hard to imagine that people believed blacks didn't have the mental capacity to be anything back then (and some people still think that, I'm ashamed to say) and look at who some of our most brilliant leaders, scientists and scholars are today (minus POTUS).
- OK, here is a Red Tails review from a friend of mine. Maybe I will just buy tickets to support the move, and go watch the Brad Pitt movie instead. "Ok... RED TAILS... I'm confused at all the rave reviews. The movie depended on Cuba and Terrance's expertise in acting. Other than that I would grade it a D-. SUPER VELVEETA cheesy lines. and so many slow parts, I made this face ( o_0 ) for 73% of the movie. I support going to see it ... to prove a point...and because of the history involved , buuuuut don't say I didn't warn ya. That is all..." Here is a follow-up on her status: "You should watch The Tuskegee Airmen with Cuba & Laurence Fishburne. Better acting better cast."
- No-Spoiler Movie Review Time! Haywire, Underworld Awakening, and Red Tails. Ok, so... If you like action/spy movies, go see Haywire. I give it a "B+" for general violence and mayhem, and a fairly badass female action star, Gina Carano (Also known as "Crush" from the new American Gladiators.) Less outright fun than other Soderbergh movies, but a lot of the same style of music to complex and detailed plots on the parts of the characters. Though at times, I admit, the music got a little hypnotic. Carano has a really great supporting cast, and while her acting doesn't stand out especially to me, I think she has a lot of promise for an MMA fighter, and I look forward to her future work. If you liked the Resident Evil movies, go see Underworld Awakening. If you liked the Underworld movies, don't. It was too short, no character gets more than a 5 minute introduction, and it was basically a series of pretty fight scenes connected by a really weak plot, filled with holes. That said, it manages a few unexpected turns, but some of the stuff that is supposed to be awesome is just outright disappointing. It felt like a video-game more than a movie, except that most video-games are more than 90 minutes long. This movie needed so much more to live up to it's predecessors. Oh, and don't bother with the 3D. It is not good 3D. I give it a "C", and the only thing keeping it above a "D" is the shoulders of the previous movies, and a few of the effects which were pretty. Go. See. Red-Tails. Period. George Lucas has redeemed himself somewhat by creating a fun, exciting movie based on the Tuskeegee Airmen, the WWII Airforce fighter group of all Black pilots and their quest to prove themselves. I give it a solid "A". This movie is not only grand in acting, and special effects rich with detail, but breaks away from some expected plot cliches. Also, at a solid 2 hours, it makes it actually worth going to the theatre.
- ok, so I went to see Red Tails last night. It was a 'good' action movie. In terms of production value, it was definitely leaps and bounds ahead of what we've been able to accomplish on screen in the past. so that's a good thing! the script didn't do the story justice though. maybe it was the delivery of the lines that made me feel like the dialogue was weak? and NEYO is now on my 'can't stand' list! dude's dialect in that movie was SOOOOOOO annoying! it sounded like he was doing an 'old man' impression! why Neyo?.....why? but all in all, it was an ok film. I give it 6 out of 10 stars. enjoy my unsolicited movie review! GO SEE IT!!!!
