I watched the movie with my dad. He went to Vietnam and at the part when he gives the coordinates and his superior doesnt believe him and ends up killing the whole unit dad told me that happened a lot while he was in Vietnam. That many were killed because of wrong coordinates. That is pretty sad to know that the goverment covers those death as collateral damage. Anyways it is a great movie to see pretty moving.
It is interesting the many faces or sides a movie can take. Many people knowing or influenced by Spike Lee black people acknowledge type of movies went overboard and might say that he didn’t portray them well. I just wonder why people can’t only see the movie and just enjoy it. I like that that religion took some heavy influence on the movie along with the subject of faith and believing. Humanity over conflicts. I loved the kid character he steals your heart from the beginning.
