A Soldier's Story
Drama • PG • 1984 • 1 hr 41 min
Very good movie. A murder mystery set in the 1940s on a army base Dealing with racism at that period of time and the complexity of army.
I really wanted to like the movie. The story considers racial bigotry in armed service. But the film is not well-supported.
A slow and clichéd film. Run-of-the-mill with nothing new to say. The only highlight is Caesar’s performance,
A great mystery that plays with the racial divides that even existed in the armed services.
