Reviews
Mine: Graphic, powerful, and intense. Denzel is great. A hell of a story, told very well. War is hell.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Exceptional story of America's first unit of black soldiers during the Civil War and the young, inexperienced Northerner (Broderick) who's given the job of training and leading them. Based in part on the letters of that young officer and brought to life with astonishing skill and believability. Grand, moving, breathtakingly filmed (by veteran cinematographer Freddie Francis) and faultlessly performed. One of the finest historical dramas ever made. Oscar winner for Cinematography, Sound, and Supporting Actor (Washington). Screenplay by Kevin Jarre. Jane Alexander (as Broderick's mother) and Raymond St. Jacques (as Frederick Douglass) appear unbilled.
