Editorial Reviews

Mario Van Peebles (Judgment Day), Billy Zane (Titanic) and Stephen Baldwin (Fled) shake up the frontier in this "fast-paced, star-studded, big brawny western" (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)! Filled with gun-blazing, fist-pounding action and co-starring Big Daddy Kane, Blair Underwood, Tone Loc, Pam Grier, Isaac Hayes, Nipsey Russell, Aaron Neville and more, Posse takes a page missing from the history books – and unfolds it with suspense, humor and awe-inspiring power! In 1892, a group of mostly black infantrymen, betrayed by their white commander, Colonel Graham (Zane), desert the Spanish-American War. With Graham hot on their trail, Jessie Lee (Van Peebles) leads the men to his hometown, Freemanville, only to find it's also besieged by war – a racist war! Lee's attempts to bring justice and freedom to his people make for a brilliant western that's short on words and long on "killer entertainment" (Los Angeles Times)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Correcting History. April 1, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Western January 19, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
It tells the forgotten story of the black cowboys of the west you have to watch it to understand, Im not going to write a long review about the movie, because everyone is a critic so just see for yourself you be the judge.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad "Western" April 8, 2014
By 49sim67
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I knew something was wrong within the first minute of this film. There was an aged man sitting at a desk holding a pistol in his hand and claimed it to be a “Peacemaker”. The only problem there was he was holding an 1875 Remington not a 1873 Colt “Peacemaker”. That was only the beginning of the gaffs in this film. At one point in the film the main characters were crossing a bleak landscape and on a hill in the background were a series of modern communication towers. I guess the viewers are just supposed to ignore such obvious historical errors. The gratuitous lengthy sex scene toward the end was really not needed and did nothing to solidify character development. Perhaps the scene was put in to arouse the young male teenage audience that this film was obviously aimed at. This DVD will be going to the local used book store if not the garbage can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done, lots of familiar faces.. April 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.
