The four-and-a-half stars will be awarded based on the price, not the overall quality of the lens. Any lens at only $120 isn't going to be wonderful, and you can bet most of those reviews aren't from plane photographers. I'm guessing it'll do the job between 75 and 200mm (like others in its class) but my experience with cheap Tamron (and Sigma) is that they are very soft.
Depending on your expectations it may be worth a shot (it is only $120), but personally I'd spend a little more and get something better.

Ya I don't expect that much from it, do you know of any other lens' that go up to at least 200mm for about $200? I'm obviously not looking for the best lens, just one that has alright quality and isn't too expensive. (Has to fit a Rebel XS) Thanks

The old adage of "You get what you pay for" applies...

I would look at the 70-300 VC USD version of the Tamron lens, which is much much better for about $400.
