    The film collapses because Lee can't sew these vignettes into a seamless tapestry. He's more interested in getting even than he is in getting it right. show more

    The first and most honest thing to say about Miracle at St. Anna is that it's an awful mess. show more

    Aspires to be epic, but mostly it's just unfocused, sprawling and badly in need of editing. show more

    This is an amazing movie! I think the critics are too busy focusing on the fact that it's a Spike Lee movie and not on the story itself. Like Malcolm X, this movie was incredible, the actors were amazing, and it was beautifully shot! Spike I'm proud of you and look forward to your next film. Again you do a film that touches our spirit and bring us stories that Hollywood never makes. Hollywood can get the middle finger! I'm tired of watching the movies that depict negative African American images & stereotypes. I've seen those sorry a$$ critics give thumbs up to some of the worst movies ever made! Kick Rocks Hollywood! Spike Lee is the truth! God Bless & keep the movies coming! You'll never be understood as long as minds stay closed.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I was inspired as an American and African American. If I hadn't been educated prior to the movie, I might have not taken seriously the hardships faced by the soldiers. However, what immediately came to my mind was Mr. Ed Taylor, a veteran of WWII that lived in my neighborhood when I was a boy. For an assignment what I think was the 8th grade, my mother suggested I interview him. He told me himself about his days in Italy, and how white women asked to see his "tail", and the treatment of Black soldiers. I also learned that Mr. Taylor was also a member of the Red Ball Express. Despite movies that depicted the officers as white, it was made up of Black soldiers. Now there's a contradiction played out in the movies. If it hadn't been for Mr. Taylor, I may not have ever known. Thanks Spike for exposing the truth and continuing to educate through facts. Facts that remain, despite how much some of our society wants to hide from them. The TRUTH sets all of us free. The truth is that despite the efforts of both white and blacks in the civil rights movement, RACISM still exists...in movies, in federal buildings and institutions, in sports, in housing, etc. I as an African-American want it to be over also, but through truth.
