DA 5 BLOODS ๐Ÿ˜Š

I <3 Spike Lee, so it pains me to say DA 5 BLOODS is not quite the message joint he was hoping for. As the film leads wander around countless jungle sequences that donโ€™t propel the story forward, I found my mind equally wandering away from the screen. So is it still worth it? Sure. Spike is still the most prolific director working today with films that have never felt more timely. This joint just doesnโ€™t soar to the heights of his last one, BLACKKKLANSMAN. Here are โ€œDa Top 5โ€ good things about the flick: The historical footage of African-American heroes weaved into the narrative is masterfully done Delroy Lindoโ€™s maddening APOCALYPSE NOW like performance is Oscar worthy Terrance Blanchardโ€™s haunting score mixed with Marvin Gaye is literally music to the audienceโ€™s ears The amount of fun the 5 leads are having makes their friendship on screen all the more believable Isiah Whitlock Jr when he finally says, โ€œsheeeittttttโ€โ€ It is currently available to stream on Netflix.
