It's sort of under the radar, but Red Tails (loosely) follows the story of the Tuskeegee Airmen, an all Black flying unit in the USAAF in WWII. George Lucas was one of the guys who wrote it, and it's kind of shitty. Cuba Gooding Jr. is in it, though. It kind of plays out like one of those old propaganda films and it has a bit of a drive-in theatre kind of character. Maybe that's just a nice way of saying that the acting is sort of bad, the dialogue was pretty cheesy, the story wasn't very tight - I think they tried to pack too much into it and they never got to go into much detail about anything. The racism the unit would have experienced was basically portrayed as a few white guys taking a few cheap cracks at the black guys, one gets called a ...... once, but they could have told that part of the story a lot better since we're talking about a segregated fighting unit here. Although if it went all American History X on us then the rating would have been a bit higher and the movie wouldn't be kid-friendly at all. Because the horrific violence of WWII is totally fine for 10 year olds to watch, but I digress. The combat scenes are mostly implausible. The bombers the Tuskeegee Airmen (the "Red Tails") were protecting were flying in ridiculously tight formations, there were fighters literally weaving in and out of them like nothing, there are a few questionable maneuvers made, the planes had unlimited ammo, there were shitloads of inaccuracies regarding the markings of the enemy aircraft (this is mostly trivial, I'm just an airplane nerd so I know). Basically if you've seen Flyboys, the combat in Red Tails is very very similar so you'll know what to expect. Pretty much another romanticized war movie that I'm starting to get a bit sick of. Still, it's generally a fun movie, pretty fast paced and if you have a 10 year old boy to take it to, he'd probably love it.
