With an ensemble cast and the directorial talents of Spike Lee, Da 5 Bloods is promising to be a gritty and entertaining war movie with a difference. The first trailer for the film released by Netflix is filled with the director’s unique style as well as some borrowed influences from 70s style film making.
From Academy Award® Winner Spike Lee comes a New Joint: the story of four African-American Vets — Paul (Delroy Lindo), Otis (Clarke Peters), Eddie (Norm Lewis), and Melvin (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) — who return to Vietnam.
Searching for the remains of their fallen Squad Leader (Chadwick Boseman) and the promise of buried treasure, our heroes, joined by Paul’s concerned son (Jonathan Majors), battle forces of Man and Nature — while confronted by the lasting ravages of The Immorality of The Vietnam War.
Da 5 Bloods also stars Paul Walter Hauser and Jean Reno and is due for release on Netflix on 12 June.
