|Arizona Republic Randy Cordova Perhaps the movie's most surprising feat? Somehow, the darned thing mostly works, probably because its heart is in the right place.|
|USA Today Claudia Puig David Oyelowo stands out as the daredevil Joe "Lightning" Little, the unit's best flier. With his bravery and bravado, he's the film's most complex character.|
|Philadelphia Inquirer Steven Rea There isn't a real, flesh-and-blood figure in the bunch. Everything about Red Tails - the breaking down of racial barriers, the military achievements, the courage and sacrifice - is diminished in the process.|
|Tampa Bay Times Steve Persall Thankfully, much of Red Tails is spent in the skies, where fighter planes swoop and zoom in thrilling dogfights with incendiary direct hits. Executive producer George Lucas apparently gave Hemingway the keys to his CGI kingdom, creating marvelously designed in-flight action and a sappy, snappy salute to the Tuskegee Airmen.|
|Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert Red Tails is entertaining. Audiences are likely to enjoy it. The scenes of aerial combat are skillfully done and exciting.|
|Portland Oregonian Shawn Levy Kudos to the makers Red Tails for paying homage to a remarkable group of men and their genuinely heroic deeds, and a hat-tip as well for the idea that the best way to tell the story was the old-fashioned way. But would that the film's old-school aura felt knowingly retro rather than dutifully rote.|
|St. Louis Post-Dispatch Kevin C. Johnson Overreaching fits of melodrama, occasionally stilted dialogue, and performances by Gooding Jr. and Howard that are mostly a series of serious faces can't keep the shiny Red Tails from taking flight.|
|New York Post Lou Lumenick A well-acted, well-directed (by TV veteran Anthony Hemingway) popcorn movie with great aerial battles and solid dramatic scenes that hold your attention for two good hours.|
- Anthony Hemingway is a fan of Star Wars. When he first met executive producer George Lucas, he was so excited that he said "May the force be with you".
- This film marks Anthony Hemingway's feature film directorial debut.
- George Lucas was the executive producer of this film.
- The cast went through a two and half week boot camp to prepare for this film. They ate everything the Tuskegee Airmen ate, wore the same uniforms and lived in the same conditions that the soldiers lived in during the 1940s.
- This film is based on a true story about the Tuskegee Airmen who fought in WWII.
