River Niger

A viewer remarked: The movie is real deep right on down to it's liberation armies, informers, and agent infiltrating provocateurs. Glynn Turman gives a superb performance as the ex air force vet, finally come home to the hood for good. Glynn Turman is one of my all time favorite actors (Cooly High, J.D.'S Revenge). The rest of the all-star cast give excellent performances. From James Earl Jones to Cicely Tyson. When you really look at it, this movie, it covers so many themes relevant to the times then (70's) and now. Vietnam (wars), Revolutionary Struggle,gangs, drug use, father son relationships, cancer, romantic relationships, honor.
