I just returned from seeing RED TAILS, a movie I had great qualms about, after just seeing the trailer, and specifically regarding the leads of Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr.
I didn’t think they could bring the gravitas necessary to these pivotal roles.
I was absolutely wrong.
There is no other way to say it. Both Cuba Gooding Jr and Terrence Howard nailed their respective roles, giving great performances. As does the whole cast.
I’ll go into details later, but suffice to say it’s the first great movie of 2012. From direction, to acting, to editing, to special effects, to script, the movie fired on all cylinders.
Just a phenomenal movie, that I’m already planning to see in theaters again in the next couple of days.
And evidently I’m not alone. When I went to buy my tickets, the girl at the counter told me ‘You might want to get a seat now, because it has been selling out all weekend’.
And after seeing it, I can see why.
And the audience was completely into it from first frame to last. Just accomplished film-making and a great flick.
Easy grade of A.
