Movie Reviews

Tampa Bay Times - 8/10 by 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.
New York Post - 8/10 by 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.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 8/10 by 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.
Portland Oregonian - 7/10 by 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.
Entertainment Weekly - 7/10 by Owen Gleiberman As long as it stays in the air, Red Tails is a compelling sky-war pageant of a movie. On the ground, it's a far shakier experience: dutiful and prosaic, with thinly scripted episodes that don't add up to a satisfying story.
Arizona Republic - 7/10 by Randy Cordova Perhaps the movie's most surprising feat? Somehow, the darned thing mostly works, probably because its heart is in the right place.
Movieline - 6/10 by Stephanie Zacharek In the end Red Tails is mostly about the coolness of flying. Its heart is in the clouds, instead of with the men at the controls.
Christian Science Monitor - 6/10 by Peter Rainer When a great movie subject results in a middling movie, the loss is double.
USA Today - 6/10 by 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.
ReelViews - 6/10 by James Berardinelli Sadly, the result is a disappointment. Sure, the aerial battles are technically adept and occasionally exhilarating, but it's almost painful to sit through some of the "drama" that occurs on the ground.
Chicago Sun-Times - 6/10 by Roger Ebert Red Tails is entertaining. Audiences are likely to enjoy it. The scenes of aerial combat are skillfully done and exciting.
Boxoffice Magazine - 6/10 by Sara Maria Vizcarrondo Such a story is made to be colored in jumbo crayon, and at first you might long for a more nuanced approach, but this film was produced in the 1940's serial style that's made Lucas Films enormous.
