Summary:

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.

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.
