      Prev Next

      Behind the camaraderie, there's a nuanced story of disenchantment and disillusionment in humanity as the result of greed and war-induced PTSD. [Full review in Spanish]

      Da 5 Bloods leaves you uneasy and vulnerable. Lee’s themes extend far beyond our borders and, for that matter, much closer within our own circles. It’s blistering poetry on the battle against hate.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Sep 1, 2022

      The dynamite Da 5 Bloods doubles as both a blistering breakdown of America’s painful past and an exhilaratingly entertaining epic in its own right, elevated even further by its exceptional ensemble.

      Spike Lee has a knack for getting people to overlook the messiness of his movies. For me that’s a challenge, yet his value as a filmmaker is unquestionable and the subjects he tackles are personal and relevant. “Da 5 Bloods” fits all of that.

      The core cast has a believable camaraderie with one another, and their chemistry brings a great deal of energy to even the dullest of scenes.

      I think Delroy Lindo has the performance of the year in this. It's Marlon Brando-level acting.

      Like a fine wine, Spike Lees skill as a director has aged beautifully. In one of the best streaks of his career, Da 5 Bloods cements Lees place as one of this generations best filmmakers.

      Da 5 Bloods is another jolt of Spike Lee electricity. It crackles in every which way. The film feels volatile, yet its voice has undeniable power.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Feb 18, 2022

      The more time that Da 5 Blood has to sit with you, the more it reveals itself and it is a film that will without a doubt grow even more powerful with age.

      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.

      Full Review | Jun 5, 2021

      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.

      As anti-racism protests continue, the firebrand filmmaker returns with one of his best ever movies...

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Apr 23, 2021

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 19, 2021

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

      Full Review | Apr 13, 2021

      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.
