Four African-American veterans return to Vietnam in search of the remains of their fallen squad leader and the promise of buried treasure. Together they must battle the forces of both nature and humanity all the while being confronted by the lasting ravages of the immorality of the Vietnam War. Spike Lee’s latest brilliant and incendiary film is, as usual, many things: a cinephile’s war movie, a history lesson, a tirade against injustice, a bittersweet reunion drama, a commentary on current American politics, and more.
