Da 5 Bloods (2020)

Rotten Tomatoes
Da 5 Bloods (2020): Spike Lee. Four war vets return to Vietnam to retrieve the remains of their fallen leader...and gold. Part history lesson, part action movie, and part study of PTSD. Implausible plot. Characters either stereotypes or cartoons. MAGA? Too much going on here. B-

We watched it last night. I told DeeGee that using your scale, I’d give it a B-. It could have been much better without the gold business. And yes, Spike might as well have come onto the screen and denounced Trump as inserting the MAGA hats.

Looking back on it, I think B- still fits. There's just too much going on in this movie to do justice to any of it.
