The theatrical release of Red Tails was, to me...disappointing. You would think that the world's richest independent filmmaker would be able to at least do a good job with his own swan song vanity project.

The original version was disjointed, cliche ridden and beat you over the head with its morality.

Sadly, Lucas dropped the ball yet again--Fortunately, SeventhWard grabbed the ball, cleaned it up, and ran it in for a touchdown.

This is the movie that Lucas should have made. Suddenly, I was emotionally invested in the characters, something which simply did not happen during my original viewing. The action scenes put punctuation to the dramatic elements, instead of trying to carry the movie.

Now, instead of being ashamed to own it, I'm happy to watch it again. Thanks SeventhWard for giving us the film that we needed, instead of the one that Lucas forced upon us. :)
