Important story receives a mediocre presentation
20 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

This important story about black seaman given dangerous duty loading bombs aboard ships is most definitely one that should be told. Although the script and acting are certainly adequate, the story would be better told as an hour-long documentary rather than a two-hour, commercial filled made-for-tv movie. I'm glad I was exposed to the story.
