The Walking Dead (1995)
In Vietnam, a squad of four African-American soldiers is deployed on a hazardous mission to rescue POWs from a remote jungle temple. Led by the fearless Sgt. Barkley (Joe Morton), the diverse group -- comprising impressionable young soldier Joe Brooks (Vonte Sweet), rebellious stoner Hoover Branche (Eddie Griffin), and bookish ideologue Cole Evans (Allen Payne) -- recount their personal experiences about how they ended up joining the Marine Corps.
Starring: Eddie Griffin, Vonte Sweet, Allen Payne, Joe Morton, Bernie Mac
Viewer Review: "This movie is a very good take on the Vietnam ware from a black perspective. Morton gives an excellent performance as the leader of the group and Griffin surprised me with a strong performance as the loud-mouth with a heart. People do get their heads blown off, but the simple storytelling with cool quotes make this a movie to watch!"
YOU MAY ALSO LIKE: Panther (1995). A semi-historic film about the origins of The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. The movie spans about 3 years (1966-68) of the Black Panther's history in Oakland. Panther also uses historical footage (B/W) to emphasize some points. Cosmic Slop (1994). Three short sci-fi tales that tackle serious social issues, back-dropped by humor and biting parody. An overlooked gem in the the history of race and horror generally compared to 'The Twilight Zone, but more closely resembles 'Night Gallery'.
