doing for the Cold War what Three Kings did for the first Gulf war - i.e. following the adventures of a small group of profiteering soldiers in order to satirise the self-interested smash-and-grab attitudes of US foreign policy.

Buffalo Soldiers is like M*A*S*H for the Reagan/Bush era generation that never knew a war like Vietnam. Both films offer a slap in the face to the establishment and display irreverent, savage satire.

...a dark, entertaining and thought-provoking film that could be recommended to pacifists and militarists alike.

May ultimately be a tad too calculated to truly shock, but manages to navigate between bad taste and Sgt. Bilko with skill and infectious glee.

It's not the dark comedy it wants to be -- that would be M*A*S*H with a more modern setting and more gruesome consequences -- but it's worth a look.

Aims to be a parable of man's self-destructive nature, and at times it succeeds. Unfortunately, it pulls punches at exactly the times that it should be hitting the hardest.

It's a refreshingly scornful and scathing depiction of one soldier's pursuit of the American Dream.

Imagine if Robert Altman's M*A*S*H had been stifled back in 1970... and you can see the absurdity of the current climate.

You won't see too much red, white and blue on this DVD transfer of Buffalo Soldiers, but what little there is sure looks great.

The characters, if not sympathetic, are at least interesting and brought to life with authenticity by the talented cast.
