Da 5 Bloods

Da 5 Bloods ★★★

I was more of a fan of director Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman. In the intro, footage that set up the scene flew by too fast. The film is a reminder that racism is ever present and that greed can destroy a bond between brothers and even a father and son. The film was heavy with racial epithets from and toward black and Vietnamese people.

I didn't "feel" the film so much as we arrived at some plot points too easily. I didn't mind the fight scene where the ratio aspect closed in and out. A second after it was over, I wondered if there was perhaps a boom in the shot and they wanted to eliminate that but keep the wide shots for the rest of the film. I didn't know, but I'd like to assume most people won't even care.
