Red Tails (2012, Blu Ray)
This (short) review deals specifically with the Blu Ray version of Red Tails. My initial review still stands firm. In fact, I'd even say I enjoyed this even more the second time. Despite its flaws, it (much like Spielberg's War Horse) just has a certain "old school" war movie feel to it that I just can't shake.
Picture and sound are suitably brilliant here. No 7 channel mix, but the 5.1 DTS-HD is more than adequate. Crank it up.
But what really puts this over the edge, are the included extras, most notably the documentary "Double Victory: The Tuskegee Airmen at War." I stayed up waay past my bedtime watching this little gem. I suggest you do the same, especially if you are at all interested in WWII history, let alone the history of the 332nd. There are a few shorter pieces as well that fall into the "Featurette" category, which are worth sticking around for.
Have to go with an 8/10 here, folks. Pick this one up.
