The story of the Tuskegee Airmen gets fresh treatment in this George Lucas-produced drama that truly takes flight in its superbly filmed aerial sequences.
The script recounts how the young African-American pilots were called up to serve as U.S. forces were being depleted during World War II, and how they took advantage to prove what they were made of. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard are among the senior members of the cast, with "90210" regular Tristan Wilds and music stars Method Man and Ne-Yo also featured. DVD extras: seven "making-of" documentaries. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies On Demand)
