George Lucas has been talking about Red Tails for over twenty years now, so even when it hit theaters in 2012 – heck, even when it started filming – it was a shock, but one dulled by years of anticipation. Passion projects like this often come true in disappointing ways, and when it finally hit screens as directed by Anthony Hemmingway and starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard and a host of actors from The Wire, there was no way it could live up to the build-up. But that’s no excuse for the end results being dullish, other than some dogfighting sequences that are so rendered in CGI that they come across as weightless. The film is not a disaster, but its positive message gets lost in hackneyed clichés. Our review of the Blu-ray of Red Tails follows after the jump.
