Red Tails




ON THE SILVER SCREEN: HAVE A NICE FLIGHT

By Brian Lafferty

 

January 20, 2012 (San Diego) – If you’re looking for a serious, authentic, and realistic portrayal of the Tuskegee Airmen, Red Tails isn’t it. Instead, you’ll get a fully romanticized, pure escapist account that isn’t flawless but is entertaining. I embraced the film’s adventurism, machismo, and old-fashioned approach. Given that Red Tails is George Lucas’ most recent pet project, it’s unreasonable to expect realism and grit.
