    Fantastic Dark Satire

    I thought this movie was excellent. I enjoyed the dark comedy, and the portrayal of a likeable main character, without him being a typical hero, or hero at all, really. Even if you don't particularly like the way the military is depicted, the acting is phenomenal, especially on the part of Joaquin Phoenix. I also enjoyed the irony throughout the film.

    Good entertainment, insulting commentary

    If this movie was a little funnier, you could watch it like "Stripes", knowing it was a farce. However, placing it in historical perspective and adding social commentary transforms it into a very, very bad insult to the military. I grew up on bases in Germany at the time depicted in this movie, and am extremely insulted and upset by the portrayal of people similar to my parents, my siblings who were active-duty at the time, and the soldiers serving with them. Gee, what's next? -- a portrayal of the founding fathers as drunken, racist crackers? Maybe something about gay white-trash cowboys oh, I guess that's "Bareback Mountain". I'm really upset that this movie seeks to show officers as inept, NCOs as corrupt, and enlisted personnel as criminal, and blatantly claims that it is depicting dramatized reality. Had they attempted to show this as a worst-case scenario, I would not react like this. But this movie genuinely tries to convey the impression that, "that the way it is".

    Not as over the top as you'd like to believe...

    If I have a problem with Buffalo Soldiers, its because its title confuses it with the elite all black cavalry regiments in the old American West. The two are entirely seperate. The movie got hit hard by psuedo patriots because it was released shortly after 9/11 and portrayed the U.S. Army in an unsympathetic manner. The movie itself is solid and quite funny, if a bit nihilistic. But I can testify as a soldier who served in Germany in 1989, its portrayal of Army life at the time is incredibly, disturbingly accurate. If anything, it pulls a lot of punches. No the Army isn't normally so bad. Not then and not now. But don't let the strident sunshine patriots try to tell you its all just like the recruiting posters. America's soldiers are the best in the world, but they are as human as any and just as prone to cruelty, stupidity, and greed. I recommend it for those prefering black humor. But I would gladly show it to my peers in the officer corps as a useful cautionary tale.
