The Hughes Brothers tried to play up the same angle with "Dead
as Micheal Cimino and Louis Garfinkle did with "The Deer Hunter" by
portraying the social effects that the Vietnam war had on its young
veterans. And for a while, it seemed as though they were quite
But in the end, it became apparent why "The Dead Presidents" fell short
the Academy recognition that "The Deer Hunter" won.
Set in the late 60s and early 70s, the plotline of "Dead Presidents"
a promising and popular inner-city high school graduate, Anthony Curtis
(Larenz Tate), who decides to forego college and enter the Vietnam War as
member of the Marine Corps. Anthony survives a graphic and arduous
three-plus-year stint in the jungle, but upon his homecoming, he realizes
that the "real world" can be just as trying as war. His low-paying job
provides little support for his new family and he becomes desperate to
ends meet. He enlists the help of some old friends and plans a daring
armored car heist which, if successful, could serve to amend his past and
brighten his future...
The first seventy-five minutes of this movie were really well done.
Character traits and relationships were well-established and the mood was
properly set as suspense built for the anticipated war scenes--a perfect
But instead of continuing with a detailed flow, the directing crew tried
cram about ninety minutes worth of material into the final forty-five
minutes, and consequently did not leave themselves enough time to totally
develop any strong climactic progression or aptly characterize any of the
cast members into their sudden postwar "criminal complex." Thus, the
scene," which based on advertising was probably supposed to be one of the
more memorable and authoritative parts of the film, seemed to be almost
"spur-of-the-moment" and lacked motivation and definition.
All in all, the film's running time, which was approximately 119 minutes,
was simply far too short for the storyline. The postwar segment of the
(the last forty-five minutes) was indeed key in separating a decent movie
like "Dead Presidents" from a epic masterpiece like "The Deer Hunter."
Besides the first seventy-five minutes, a couple of notably good
performances given by Chris Tucker as Skip (Anthony's best friend) and
Jackson as Juanita (Anthony's girlfriend) do make "Dead Presidents" a
worth seeing at least once. That said, I would warn not to create a
preconception based on the title, tagline or any publicity images that
might have seen, because they apply only to a small portion of the
