1. I think a lot of folks confuse reviewing a movie vs reviewing the subject matter of the movie. The story of the Tuskegee Airmen is / should be an inspiration to all; a no brainer. 2. But this movie about the Tuskegee Airmen is a half-baked affair. Unlike a lot of those who liked the CGI, I was kind of put off by it because it appeared so... CGI. As soon as I saw the initial battle scenes, it was obvious that it was created via CGI; it reminded me of the history channel Dog Fights. Technically, looks great, but at the same time it looks artificial. 3. As with the other folks who gave this movie a somewhat negative review, I 100% agree that the weakest link in this movie is the writing & acting. And when you get down to it, no matter how great the special effects etc... the fundamentals of a great movie are always going to be solid writing and acting; this movie has neither. 4. An alternative to this movie is the older DVD: The Tuskegee Airmen. It's not as high tech as this movie, but the fundamentals were there.
