This is a story that deserves a better adaptation!
5 December 2002 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

First off, let me say that I am an Honorably Discharged Veteran of the United States Navy and I am Caucasion. This movie glossed over the real Issues of the day. This is a story that demands too be told. Sadly, this particularly movie was not a good vehicle. The movie is filled with cliches and is transparent, on its face. For the love of God, Let Spike Lee takes this story and adapt it!
