DVD/Blu-ray Release: Red Tails
Today, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing the World War II film Red Tails on Blu-ray & DVD. Produced by George Lucas, the film generally overcomes a clichéd script with enough well staged battle sequences to make it worth checking out in high definition. We reviewed Red Tails when it opened in theatres on January 20th, our overall consensus was:
“Although Red Tails has a script filled with clichés and is a little long at over two hours, Anthony Hemingway’s World War II film tells an interesting true story and features some impressive sequences of aerial battle. **1/2 (Out of 4)”
The Blu-ray comes loaded with several featurettes, including one on the real Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American combat unit to serve in WWII.
Red Tails is 125 minutes and rated PG.
