When they find Norm's body. TEAAARRS , Best part of the movie. The scene that happened after that one. . . with Eddie . . .Disturbing. Then when I realized Chadwick Boseman had Died MORE TEARS. Beautiful movie and themes with a intense cast and action.

As a black veteran and a fan of black panther. I was kinda dissatisfied. It was showing certain people as crazy just because of their political view is different than what was being pushed. I hate both Democrats and Republicans. I've seen evil on both sides. What pissed me off is movies pushing agendas. Remember we all will meet the Lord and agendas won't fly with him. I have evil family members that will love this movie and also call to do violence on others and then claim Jesus. Hypocrites. I'm so done with the corrupt population doing evil and calling it good. I have 0 sympathy for the corrupt agenda pushers

The movie had some moments, but it is one of the stupidest movies I have ever seen. I like many of Spike's movies, but many people just sucked on the dirty cock of this movie just to not offend. The movie was poorly written. It had potential, but that is it. The movie sucked.

I don't think the MAGA hat undercuts the conversation just basically because there are really people who wear them, and anyone sane does automatically undercut the maga wearing people in real life. Thats just how it is. They live in the same world us ours. He was the type of person who would do that.

My wife and I got through an hour and a half and couldn't believe there was another belaborous hour to go. This was by far one of the worst movies I've seen in awhile. So much of it didn't make sense. So many "conveniences" it was goofy as hell. A guy walks down a hill to take a dook and then finds miraculously the gold they were looking for???? All the "groomed" trails in the middle of the jungle so these old bastards can just walk along like they were in a national park? The political jabs were also a bit much. MLK, Washington owning slaves, blacks falling for propaganda by commies during the Vietnam war. It's pretty clear that Spike is trying to rile up black people. Once people are angry you can shape their mind easier. This movie was trash.

This movie felt pretty lazy with all the cut and paste graphics that are sometimes extremely low quality or rather out of place. A movie that has a 2 hour and 30 minute run time should have more than enough time to pace things effectively but it’s a mess. I wanted to like this movie, but it’s subpar, it’s wasted potential. I don’t know how someone can watch this film and not think it’s lazy.

If you buried millions of dollars in gold when you were 20, would you wait until you were pushing 70 before you dug it up? Wouldn’t the idea of being rich appeal to you many, many years before that? Would you really wait until you were so old that you’d have to worry about throwing your back out when you picked up the loot?

You didnt mention how the movie had terrible dialogue. As an audience you felt like the characters were dictating their every move At one point, their dead platoon leader (Chadwick Boseman) is described as “our Martin and our Malcolm.” Why not let the audience discover that, rather than give these flashback scenes too much to live up to?

this was Chadwick Boseman's last performance and he was absolutely fantastic in it, and I also think Derloy Lindo at least deserve an Oscar nomination for a leading role- and yes LEADING, because in a sense, he was the protagonist and the main thrust of the film.

This movie is like watching your favorite football (soccer) team play well in the first half then come out and concede 10 goals in the 2nd half. Bizarre nosedive in the quality of the writing after about an hour or so. Kinda like you know when some movies show you something that's meant to be horrific and shocking but it's so badly executed it makes you laugh? Yeah, that.

I think the cuts to the photographs and historic explanations takes us out of the film and feels like I’m watching a history presentation. I like it better when they mention historic names or transition into talking about the events/people without being so direct that it takes us out of the film or makes us think that we couldn’t think for ourselves; I wish it were more subtle. Some of the scenes featuring Vietnamese interacting with the Americans feel cringey, but other than that the film was pretty entertaining, stylistic, and had good moments that conveyed the human condition.

It was a movie about war and anti blackness in the US. I think that's politics and the Trump hat was connecting past and present circumstances

Terrible movie. Ok we get it, you hate whitey and the fact that the bad guy is the trump supporter. It's just poor directing. The only good part was the "we dont need no stinking badges" reference but apart from that it was just yet another movie about hatred for white folks and how blacks are the victim....but then again what would you expect from spike lee?......

@MRJ2012so you liked the movie did you? Well each to their own I guess, theres no accounting for taste. I still thought it was a poor attempt at continuing a devisive rhetoric to a bunch of simple minded, easily lead, racists who are so busy trying to gold on to their victim status that they dont realise that they themselves are the ones that are being racist and victimising other ethnic groups simply for the colour of their skin. I'm guessing you fall quite comfortably into that category.....

Delroy lindo was just outstanding and excellent in this movie, Chadwick Boseman was surprisingly good too. Also all the black actors were very good, even jean Reno, his best role in a long time, he is just a bastard in this movie, I hate his character so much. But Delroy lindo stole the show with the excellent screenplay. Now is one of my new favorite spike lee movies. Lindo need an Oscar

Movie was long and boring. Grumpy old men should be at home quarentined from Covid and not looking for gold. None of them is a Morgan Freeman. There were a few creative scenes but in general the movie was bad. And Spike Lee injecting politics into it made it worse. Would rather watch Apocalipse Now or Platoon again.

The second David said he had to go make a deposit, my anxiety levels shot through the roof. All I could think about was that mines were going to come into play at some point. Spike Lee is a real asshole, and a genius, for how he shot the scenes that followed. He knew we were anticipating the worst, and he took his time.

In regard to the MAGA hat, I disagree that it is a purely political statement or overshadows the focus on other themes that the movie did so well on. While it was distracting, that hat represents more than a side of the aisle. It represents control by fear and hatred. Perhaps it was just something Spike Lee wanted to throw in there or a gimmick to make the movie more edgy and contemporary, but in my opinion it goes far beyond political beliefs and in fact is a physical manifestation of Paul's mindset and how it's controlling him.

This movie was garbage, It was like Spike Lee took the last 5 min of preaching Anti Trump stuff from BlackKklansman and made an entire movie. can't say I'm surprised this got a 92% on rotten tomatoes, though I couldn't keep track of the number of time I rolled my eyes at some of the dialog or the scenes that were funny when they wont suppose to be. I recommend watching "Beasts of No Nation" instead

I love Spike Lee and war films but, for some reason, I really hated this film... it just didn't connect for me. Again, I LOVE Spike Lee. This just felt like it was way too much standing and talking... then sitting and talking... then more talking without doing anything other than talking. He's an Oscar-winning screenplay writer... so who the hell am I to question anything but the main thing in writing is to "show" not "talk" about someone or something. We kept hearing how great Norman was -- but did we ever see him doing anything heroic, other than speeches? We only know he's great because of they saying he was great. And, was in the world was with them looking exactly their same age but 40 years ago? Grey bears, wrinkles, etc. Why didn't they just shave or something to hide the obvious age? I dunno... I really expected to love this film but it just missed the mark for me.

I watched this last night and did enjoy it, it was probably Spike Lee's craziest film. But it's not his best work, I thought the action scenes had too much CGI and the plot felt disjointed at times. But you are right in that the way it was shot definitely complimented the story, very glad Netflix is willing to take a chance on edgy material such as this.

DA 5 BLOODS is well-acted and the pacing is very good for a 154-minute-long movie, but it could and should have been more subtle with its themes and social commentary. The 4 main actors play their younger versions in flashbacks and it's not convincing. To make matters worse, Chadwick Boseman (who's noticeably younger than them) plays a character that only appears in flashback. Was there some meaning behind all this? Like the characters feel they're still in the past? Then why not go all the way and have them wear the same clothes? Why not blur the line between the timelines? Artistic decisions like these are supposed to enhance the experience, not take the viewer out of the story. Actually, I could say the same thing about other stylistic choices. For example, the use of old photographs in the middle of conversations (is this a SElosk movie review?!) or pointlessly cutting from one shot to another one where the angle isn't that different. Using different aspect ratios in different scenes can work if you don't draw attention to it. This movie unfortunately shows the transition. 6/10

I’m Sorry but the Ending Sucks, there should’ve never been a bad guy in this movie. It went against what this movie wanted to be which is about old comrades looking for Norm and Gold, then all of the sudden it’s a siege movie. They just used “Black lives matter” to promote this movie and it worked, rather then telling the horrors of war and that every side was affected by it was completely thrown away by making the French dude the villain.

I think Spike knew exactly what he was doing when including the MAGA hat in the film. He wanted to show the audience that we live in a time now where the leading figure of the country openly promotes and encourages hatred and resentment, and that he takes advantage of damaged people who have been wronged by the oppressive and divisive systems America has put in place. Sure the message is incredible strong and relevant without mentioning Trump, but by including Trump, Spike made the film even more timely and relevant, which is really important in a time where more and more Americans are coming together to stand up against injustice, racist systems and policies, and hatred. Trump is a big part the issue and a big obstacle standing in the way of progress, justice, and equality. Spike Lee is not afraid to point this out and I really respect him as a filmmaker and a social activist for always standing up.
