Here’s the 3rd trailer for Red Tails, the film based on The Tuskegee Airmen. The effects look great but I’m not sold and I think the reason is because Terrence Howard looks like he’s hamming it up. Check it out and tell me I’m not right.
Synopsis: 1944. As the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options – including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country – and the fate of the free world. courtesy of trailers.apple.com
