A Soldier's Story Review


Good
Shockingly dated, this A Few Good Men precursor follows military justice in an all-black army regiment during World War II. The problem isn't the theme -- which is timeless -- or Denzel Washington -- who was 30 years old at the time but looks like a teenager. The problem is the photography and the schmalzy production values, which look like they're years ahead of the Hallmark era. Norman Jewison won copious praise for this film back in 1984 and even got an Oscar nomination, but the cheeseball '80s presentation of some serious subject matter (racially charged murder investigation) just doesn't fly today.
