Red Tails is a new movie from George Lucas telling the story of the Tuskegee Airmen. You can watch the trailer for it here. Or you can watch the film HBO made of the same story in 1995.
It was simply named The Tuskegee Airmen, and this is the trailer for that version of history.
I’m not saying don’t go out to the movie theater and watch Red Tails. I’d like to see the film do well at the box office. However, there is another option as the George Lucas effort isn’t the first telling of the tale.
There are some differences between the two. Lucas has used special effects aplenty (as he always does) while HBO used archive footage of the planes and airmen fighting the war. I’d also say the acting is better in The Tuskegee Airmen, but that’s just me.
