Story


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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..while the CGI aerial warfare is thrilling, all the pilot chatter is annoying..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..the story has been stripped of historical context-don't black teenagers and everyone else deserve hard facts?-and internal logic..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..it's old-fashioned entertainment, to be sure, and sometimes melodramatic to the film's detriment..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
