remembered when I saw it the first time & how it blew my mind how creative this film is. It’s one of his strongest writings to date. No cap.
Good performances with a good story, the only thing takes away is the odd cinematography and some poor effects
It was about as good as I expected it to be.
Tragic story. Did not get the attention it should have. It is visceral, intense and real. It is a relevant message and Lee is on his A game
Lee delivers another movie that’s both profoundly political as well as a great genre film. Oscar nomination at minimum for Lindo.
A little unfocused on what movie it wants to be but a good performance by all the mains. Even at their worst moments I still felt for them
A bit ridiculous at points, but overall a decent film that uniquely tackles the war and aging genres.
Lee's personal style gives strength to this poignant, nuanced statement of black soldiers in Vietnam. A very powerful film
It's pretty good. I wouldn't watch it again though
