These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Red Tails
Crowning Moment Of Awesome: As noted in the poster, the producers obviously think the Red Tailers shooting down jet fighters with propeller planes definitely qualifies.
Hate Dumb: While there are legitimate criticisms on the shortcomings of the film, some negative comments are thinly veiled "Lucas Sucks!" eye-rolling or accusations of "ripping off" HBO's Tuskegee Airmen.
Unfortunate Implications: The reason this languished in Development Hell for so long was the fact that Execs didn't think that a movie with non-mainstream black actors as main characters (the more well known had supporting roles in the movie) would be successful. Considering that the premise of the movie was basically about people doubting a black squadron would be successful, this can come off uncomfortably...
However in terms of box off.. it didn't (it was a 10 million short of its 48 million budget).
Visual Effects of Awesome: While it doesn't have as huge a budget as most blockbusters, it being a pet project of George Lucas, who also ponied up much of the cash to get it produced, it looks to have ILM's full force behind it regarding the battle sequences, though some of it looks a bit too polished.
