New Red Tails trailer gives more
Thankfully the new trailer for Red Tails gives us more from the film and suggests that it's going to be a lot better than we might have first thought. After all the first few trailers weren't fantastic, but this one has a strong rousing sense and concentrates less on Lucas' effects.
Mind you in this trailer for the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, first African-American combat squadron to fight for America in World War II there are still a few issues, and I find myself struggling with the early speeches of Terrence Howard.
Perhaps it's just context, but the flat emotionless delivery with expertly enunciated wording just doesn't work for me, when he does get impassioned with his final speech it does work much better and the rousing music grabs a hold of you.
This trailer does tell the story much better, and it also looks like it's going to work out well for them all from it, of course it can't because this is war, but it makes the film look a lot better from the previous trailers.
