Red Tails Blu-Ray / DVD Review

Synopsis: Academy Awardr Winner Cuba Gooding Jr.* and Academy Awardr Nominee Terrence Howard** lead a powerful ensemble cast in this high-flying epic inspired by the real-life adventures of the first African-American combat unit to serve in World War II. 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 to prove themselves in the sky...even as they battle discrimination on the ground. Featuring jaw-dropping aerial action and thrilling special effects, Red Tails is a breathtaking tribute to the unsung heroes who rose above extraordinary challenges and ultimately soared into history.

Review: This film is a focus around four pilots of the first African American flight squad, during WWII.   This is the kind of film that could come off as pandering, but does a great job of mixing the action of great flight sequences with the tale of this legendary crew.  The cast is there, although I can't stand Terrence Howard, he does turn in a good performance.  I much prefer Cuba Gooding, Jr., who is not only sincere, but fantastic.  This one has great choreography, especially in the action sequences.  This one is definately worth the watch.

Interest Range: Action, Drama
