The film loses itself in the Vietnamese jungles, the structure becomes blurry and disconnects us from the drama. Lee's style brings good moments, but it's not enough. [Full review in Spanish]

...Da 5 Bloods is a heaping buffet of everything - it's rich with ideas, motifs, aspect-ratio shifts, finely tuned perspectives, and big, careening sledgehammer blows.

It's another raw and thought-provoking one from a filmmaker who, thankfully, can't do it any other way...

This film is fearsome, engrossing, and will likely become necessary viewing for film studies and acting thanks to Delroy Lindo.

Da 5 Bloods is a film of great poignancy, one that is keenly aware of 'history' as both a source of trauma and a means of healing it.

Da 5 Bloods is a mixed bag, a thrilling genre adventure that aspires to social commentary but doesn't seem to understand how to do it consistently or meaningfully.

Navigates between genres and indulges in flashes of raw humor and macabre violence... a rather sophisticated, postmodern work. [Full review in Spanish]

What a glorious and bloody mess this is! Spike Lee is so good at mixing his potion of ideas, themes and influences...

Boseman's final scene, a mystical passage in which one of the Bloods envisions Norman visiting him with a message of forgiveness, was originally merely the emotional high point of the film; now it seems almost supernaturally inspired.

Da 5 Bloods has its faults, but it offers food for thought, and we can't really have enough of that right now.

Da 5 Bloods is a powerful blend of Spike Lee's skills as educator and entertainer.

Da 5 Bloods works equally as well as film that can entertain as it does in delivering a message for those willing to hear it.

Spike Lee movies are like onions. Peel off a layer and there's a new one beneath. Take that off and another reveals itself. His latest, Da 5 Bloods, is even more multi-faceted than usual.

[Spike] Lee creates a powerful parallel to our dystopian times and raises an incisive commentary on racism through the lens of the Vietnam War.

Da 5 Bloods is quite some undertaking. By and large Lee succeeds, even if along the way the story hits some cul-de-sacs...

Spike Lee has never been more vibrant or urgent.

Spike Lee hits it out of the park again with this time-hopping Vietnam War drama.

Parts of it are brilliant; other parts, frankly, tedious or undercooked.
