Mario Van Peebles directed and starred in this film about a group of African-American soldiers (and one white one) on the run from a corrupt military officer. The officer (Billy Zane) had the posse steal some gold from Cuba during the Spanish-American War. He planned to kill them afterwards, but the group proved stronger than he thought and they escaped. They come back to the states and follow Jesse (Van Peebles) to the dream town of his deceased father in west Texas. Jesse has some inner demons to silence and they won't be still until he has settled an aged score.
The film is interesting. However, the movie relies heavily upon typical Western cliches which dampen some of the it's uniqueness. Nevertheless, the film does raise awareness about all the black cowboys and settlers that were so instrumental in taming the West that most people don't even know existed. An educational film that is quite entertaining to watch.

This movie is good, not great but good. A lot of great actors, great camerawork, decent story that leads up to a big climax. It drags a little after the first hour but it finishes off pretty good. If your a fan of New Jack City you might want to check this out, spike lee would have done something like this considering he likes to remind the world that black people had a role in historical events as well.

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Django Unchained and has the patience for a spaghetti western type of film

This was a good western with authentic sets. Van Peebles puts in a great performance. It is difficult to see the conditions of black soldiers, cowboys and pilgrims back then but this is a movie where the good guys win. A lot of fun to see so many actors that were on TV in the 70's & 80's and even Issac Hayes! Recommended.

This was my first movie that I watched on Amazon Prime it was a little difficult getting my Roku player connected or setup to watch the movie and or tv shows provided on Amazon. There should be just a simple how to step by step of how to setup the Amazon Prime account so that movies or tv shows can be watched. It also would make it a whole lot simpler if all of the Amazon Prime movies and TV shows were grouped together so that there wouldn't be so much searching involved in finding what was available to watch for free with the Amazon Prime account. The movie was very entertaining though and I'm sure that when I get the time I will search back through the listings of all the Prime checked movies and TV shows and create a list of the ones that are available to watch for free. But it would help tremendously if they were all grouped together, that way a fairer comparison could be made to your rival on line streaming service Netflix. Another suggestion one that would also work would be that when a person clicked on a particular Genre of movie say Drama and there were 30 out of 300 movies that were tagged as Prime Account movie that could be viewed for free list the number of movies like this 30/300 with the 30 being in red or blue so that it's clear that 30 of the 300 selections available to view for free on the Prime membership are in that group. The same can be done for each Genre as well as the TV shows.
Simple is always better. Remember Microsofts Cntl+Alt+Delete sequence to turn the computer on when all that was needed was a power on button. Simple is better because it just makes more sense,

For attempting to set the record straight, this film deserves 5 stars. There were towns like the 'dream town' in this movie. Ex-slaves did settle among the Native Americans. And white men did try to steal the land when they felt it had value. Many forget there were Black soldiers who acquitted themselves well in the Spanish American war. This film tries to put a bit of all of this in, and at the same time, tell a story that will keep our attention. Mario, you did well, and I am honored to own this movie. Remember, a movie is only there to tell a story. And I enjoyed Tone Loc, Big Daddy Kane, Tiny Lister, Stephen Baldwin, Mario Van Peebles and the little guy whose name I can't recall at the moment. And, the townspeople? What a colorful group. The scene when they pass the road gang, and you hear the mournful voice of Aaron Neville, absolutely heart tugging. The New Orleans scene? Envigorating. But, why did Father Time have to die. Why did any of the Posse have to die? I would have liked to see them ride again. 'Jesse, they killed Angel'

The opening text talks about serious stuff like the fact that black cowboys have been excised from the history books and about america stealing the land from the Native Americans and heavy things and Woody Strode is being very serious about a serious story that he is telling to some enraptured young reporters.

Then we proceed to flash back to one of the goofiest movies I have ever seen. Mario Van Peebles plays Jesse Lee. Jesse Lee is a stern-faced gunslinger with a taste for revenge and a deep hatred of sleeved shirts who is currently conscripted to the army and fighting some war in Cuba. Together with his rag-tag group of rapscallions who include Tone Loc (for comic relief), Stephen Baldwin (for comic relief), Tommy 'Tiny' Lister (for comic relief), a fast-talking nerd (for comic relief) and Big Daddy Kane (because Big Daddy Kane is awesome). Jesse Lee steals a chest full of gold and flees from Billy Zane, a gleeful wacky villain who is as giggly as he is deadly. With the stolen gold and Billy Zane in pursuit the gang heads back to America where they follow Jesse back to his home town and from that point on the movie LITERALLY BECOMES BLAZING SADDLES. Seriously it's the exact plot of Blazing Saddles except without the funny. There are various bad guys in the town that Jesse needs to extract revenge from but that becomes a side plot because the bad guys were buying up all the land in town and trying to drive the townsfolk away because they had knowledge that the railroad was coming through and stood to make a fortune gouging the railroad company for all the cash they could. There is even a scene where Jesse Lee has to convince the townspeople to fight back against the baddies. The townsfolk rally and the day is saved thanks to some bravery and a lot of dynamite (Blazing Saddles!).
