Da 5 Bloods follows 4 Vietnam veterans (Paul, Otis, Mel, and Eddie) back to recover the remains of their fallen comrade Stormin Norman, and a stash of gold. Da 5 Bloods cleverly weaves in history and historical figures as it tells a fictional tale where its characters face a myriad of internal choices on an emotional journey through their pasts.
JJ learns a powerful life lesson and shares his love of Delroy Lindo. Ian likes that this movie does not shy away from the hard truths but does have issues with it. Mattson applauds the storytelling while questioning the length.
