Red Tails  Tuskegee Airmen

The Ina Diane Archer review of Red Tails raises many questions; some that filmmakers, and producers might answer, and others that can never have a definitive answer and will vary by esteeming:  
Did this movie accurately portray the Tuskegee Airmen?
Did it do so within the constraints of a for-profit Hollywood movie environment?  
Should there be a follow-up prequel or sequel, or both?  
What was the role of women in the lives of the Tuskegee Airmen, and should this find a place in the film?  
It is very difficult to be a good director of both action sequences and psychological drama, which is the right approach for Red Tails?  
And the ever-popular question, 'how do we deal with exposition?'  
Whenever one sees a media report on one’s father it must seem shallow and incomplete, where does the observer stand to report back one’s evaluation of such a movie?  
After having more time to consider the possibilities Ina Diane Archer (in her second review) offers some well considered observations the film.
