Where you can watch this movie:


World War Two action adventure based on the true story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the squadron of African-American fighter pilots who overcame both American racism and the German Luftwaffe to prove their courage and skills in the air. In 1944, the all-black 332 Fighter Group led by Major Stance (Cuba Gooding Jr), having hitherto been kept on the ground and refused actual combat on the grounds of subservience and segregation, is called into air duty under the guidance of Colonel A.J. Bullard (Terrence Howard).

Our review

"The aerial dogfights look absolutely stunning and the cast ooze confidence, but when the action hits the tarmac, the story swerves like a plane caught in a cross-wind thanks to a cliche-ridden script and one-dimensional characters."
