Da 5 Bloods

You can’t escape the past.

A group of Black soldiers return to Vietnam years after the war which shaped their lives, intent on recovering gold bars they hid before shipping out.

But there’s more going on here, as ghosts from the past haunt in Spike Lee’s powerful twist on films like The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Each of the men are on two paths – to find the gold, but also to make peace with events of the past.

The cast is strong across the board, but give Delroy Lindo special props as the most damaged of this wild bunch.
