Movie Reviews

  • while the CGI aerial warfare is thrilling, all the pilot chatter is annoying
    Review rate : D by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • throughout the film, however, all opposition to the universally sympathetic protagonists falls like so many bowling pin
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • these sequences are all swoop, boom and rat-tat-tat - until some character opens his mouth to utter a line so stilted that it could have drawn giggles in 1946
    1.5 of 4 by Mark Jenkins [Washington Post ]
  • there are no subtle moments in this production
    by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine ]
  • the story trips up by skimming the surface of history
    Review rate : D+ by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • 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 ]
  • the movie's most exciting moments are its heavily computer-generated aerial battle sequences
    Review rate : C by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • the movie takes all these hoary cliches and presents them without any trace of irony or self-awareness
    Review rate : C+ by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic ]
  • the movie is packed with non-gems such as these, which accompany scenes of such absolutely rote dramatic content
    Review rate : D by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • the dogfighting sequences, full of crisscrossing, bullets-blazing action, are rendered with digital precision - they're exhilarating
    Review rate : D+ by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • squanders a great subject, reducing the real-life struggles and fierce heroics of the Tuskegee Airmen to rickety cliche
    Review rate : D by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • some of the dialogue is awkward, especially early on
    3 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • on the ground, it's a far shakier experience: dutiful and prosaic, with thinly scripted episodes that don't add up to a satisfying story
    Review rate : B- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • it's old-fashioned entertainment, to be sure, and sometimes melodramatic to the film's detriment
    Review rate : D+ by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • it's better than the Star Wars prequels
    2 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • for all their visual polish, such maneuvers lack the thrill of practical stuntwork
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
