a landscape that's been covered before with much more subtlety and humor, but the individual actors deliver the goods

Like its bored soldiers, this movie seems to play with volatile substances with not nearly enough respect for their meaning.

Writer/director Gregor Jordan has crafted a slick, sophisticated, dark satire...

It's mostly a lurching, clumsy affair, a very poor man's Catch-22.

If you can get past the idea that Buffalo Soldiers ... has any real relevance, you are likely to enjoy its sitcom snap and the performance of Phoenix.

Buffalo Soldiers is the wrong movie for today's America. That's what's so perfect.

Austin Chronicle

As a commentary on the sheer mindless ennui of military base operations during the Cold War, it's right on the money: 'Life During Boretime.'

August 31, 2003

There's a high-energy look, powering a tone of sorta satirical deadpan comedy, but problems arise when the director tries to mix his hip cynicism with a fully rounded story.

KBTV-NBC (Beaumont, TX)

This is a very dark comedy not meant for everyone, but if you have a twisted sense of humor, you will have a twisted good time.

Philadelphia Weekly

...plays like late-'90s overly entitled nihilism...Jordan doesn't seem to understand that satire stems from outrage, not smug self-satisfaction.

An enjoyably savage cautionary tale about what can happen to warlike men in a time of peace.

It's ridiculous diatribes are impeccably acted ... just try not to think of the film's heavy-handed messages, which will probably infuriate you.

If there's a grain of accuracy in this so-called honest portrait of life and commerce on an American military base, we're in grave trouble.

If only it were unpatriotic -- that would have been infinitely more interesting than the wishy-washy, morally skittish movie we have.

Combustible Celluloid

Falling far short of a brilliant satire like Three Kings -- but too satirical to be a goofy Army comedy like Stripes -- Buffalo Soldiers still manages enough of both to command attention.

Has many fine performances ... yet the movie fails to give meaning to their actions, or to evoke sympathy for their anti-hero attitudes.

A darkly funny, but critical view of military renegades and the system that coddled them.

See Buffalo Soldiers for its anarchic black-comedy touches, the quirky chemistry between Phoenix and Paquin, but try holding your nose when the plot goes into action-movie overdrive.
