TopGun of WWIIBy Ade ARÉ from London, England , 30 Jul 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]This film will evoke some strong feelings for most who watch it weather it be due to the many hurdles faced by the leading actors who are portrayed in the film or by those who simply want to see them succeed. Just like many films that came after it Clash of the Titans, Men of Honour (which also starred Cuba Good Jr) and a host of other films where there is any element of racial abuse that results in respect/acceptance for those concerned. The mix of live action together with archive footage is done well, the film on the whole is entertaining and is a good watch if you like; Inspired by real life events, underdog winners! If not then watch TopGun Again!

excellent, well worth a watchBy Filmworm (7 reviews) , 27 Nov 2011As always when I watch film I like to suspend my disbelief. I really enjoyed this film when I first saw it and tbh I enjoyed it again. Well acted, excellent airial shots and a great story. I derinately recommend this film.
Good film, do watchBy a customer from London , 18 Dec 2009A well done film on an interesting subject that is very often overlooked.
The characters in the film are not real, just a mix of the genuine stuff and the aircraft flown in Morocco are also the wrong ones. For all that, gets the key points across, i.e. the struggle regarding racial views in the military.
The Tuskegee AirmenBy notmuch (12 reviews) from Southport , 02 Sep 2009As I expected, not a bad movie.
Worth night in with popcorn.
Tuskegee AirmenBy a customer from Liverpool , 27 Mar 2009What could have been a great film was spoilt by the fact that half of the dogfights were stolen from the Battle of Britain and Memphis Belle...
The Tuskegee AirmenBy a customer from England , 05 Jul 2008This is a good film of a little known subject, the inclusion of Black Americans in the U.S. armed forces (Army Air Core) in the second world war. Based on true events. Aerial sequences quite well filmed but seem to rely a lot on computer generated images, when real aircraft could have been used. Another down side to the film I found is the amount of time spent on the story of the inclusion of civillians in to the armed forces, and their training, and not enough time on the front line exploits of the men. Having given the down sides , this is still a good film to watch.
