Audience Reviews for Black Brigade


Black Brigade is a weird, but decent World War II film. While the film can be cheesy and over the top at times, it manages to hold itself together through solid acting, funny humor, and terrific action scenes. It's a fun throwback to old blaxploitation films and it's also interesting to see some of these actors (Like Billy Dee Williams) in their earlier years in acting.

I very good movie of WWII. With a all star cast in their early years of acting. Funny, Deep & Sad at times. A look at the past.


So-so World War II movie, cheaply made but has a great African American cast including Richard Pryor at toward the start of his career. Ordinary, Stephen Boyd is quite good.
