About the Movie
Directed by Spike Lee from a screenplay written by James McBride, the author of the acclaimed novel of the same name, the film chronicles the story of four African American soldiers who are members of the U.S. Army as part of the all black 92nd Buffalo Soldier Division stationed in Tuscany, Italy, during World War II. They experience the tragedy and triumph of the war as they find themselves trapped behind enemy lines and separated from their unit after one of them risks his life to save an Italian boy. Miracle at St. Anna explores a deeply inspiring story that transcends national boundaries, race and class to touch the goodness within us all.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Pedestrian and awkward, this film is a disappointment not only in comparison with Lee's earlier epic, the underrated Malcolm X, but also in comparison with another film with similar aims, Rachid Bouchareb's Days of Glory.
Rotten: The impulse here is to say something about the nobility of this movie's intent or to note that Spike Lee is one of our best filmmakers. But the first and most honest thing to say about Miracle at St. Anna is that it's an awful mess.
Rotten: Lee takes nearly three hours to tell this sad tale, but he never makes the most of the opportunity.
Rotten: The sad thing is, there's a perfectly fine, Sam Fulle-rish, 90-minute war movie on a worthy subject trapped somewhere in the self-indulgences of Miracle at St. Anna.
great movie war movies rock
Rent for the story
The story is a great one, makes me wish i read the book instead of seeing the movie. I couldnt believe how terrible the acting was, it was painful to sit thru. if you like war movies then this is worth a rent, but wouldnt buy it.
i thought the movie was okay...there were some parts that were stupid. Its a good movie to watch if you have nothing else to do. The book was much better
