Dave Millhouse says: Jan. 23, 2012

red tails tells the story of the black tuskegee airfighters of ww11 .There is some very brief moments of violence that may scare some very young children.Theres also moments of casual swearing,and scenes of drinking which are mild.This is a film where older children can watch with an adult and learn what went on during world war 2 and the pressures these black airfighters faced,with racism from the government.The only serious point worth mentioning here the film is anti-racist but contains racial epitaphs.
