Description
After the horrific Vietnam War, soldier Anthony Curtis returned to his home in the Bronx after his active participation in the war. Antony begins his life after the war in a state of total stagnation and miserable life for himself and his friends. Antony began his search for work to provide a good environment for him and his family. After many of the insults to which Antoine was subjected and after a great deal of desperation, Antony was introduced to Skeep, a drug addict and Kirby, a small crook who decided to start schemes that looked catastrophic. Antony and his new friends began planning a major theft of bank robbery. Robbery may be the only way out of poverty for Anthony and his friends.

Significant as both history and film art, this gloomy tale has no "convenient" villains and refuses to indulge in stereotypes, instead focusing on larger forces, such as racism and political apathy.

Unfortunately, the filmmakers were overzealous in trying to cover a variety of issues, leaving the story choppy and without resolution in places.

Excellent performances, a great soundtrack, and the Hughes' technical virtuosity make it worth a look.

It's an overly ambitious effort that strains to work as a coming-of-age drama, a 1960s period piece and a searing comment on the way African American GIs went largely unappreciated for their war efforts.

Dead Presidents may eventually box itself into a narrative dead end, but its muscular engagement of weighty themes and explosive situations makes it a powerful drama.

What emerges is an uneasy blend of didacticism and juiced-up bloodletting (the brothers don't know when to stop with the exploding squibs) that bury the film's message and its good intentions.

Made with fluid skill and a passion for storytelling, its tale of how the Vietnam War and American society affect a black Marine remains accessible while confounding expectations.
