Like a 50's aerial film mixed with Wings, Lucas' pet project is focused more as entertainment delivers in the action scenes. However the on-the-ground drama and dialogue is weak and the film lacks a more historical and detailed approach. Howard and Gooding Jr. do good though.
I watched this out of respect for The Tuskegee Airmen. This movie decided to try as hard as it could to shit all over them by making a horribly acted movie. The only reason it gets any stars is because the dog fights were pretty excellent and I get to know there's a movie where Bubbles takes care of Michael and Wallace's planes when they land after killing Nazis, which is a nice alternate ending to The Wire.
