'Dead Presidents' (1995) Movie Review
This film is about three friends who (at the time) are just getting out high school. One joins the army, and two others eventually end up in the Army as well.
All three friends come back in the mid 70’s to find that times have changed. Larenz Tate’s girl had a kid while he was in the Army and discovers that a local pimp has been helping out his girl and daughter.
His other friend (played by Chris Tucker) is strung out on some drugs.
They meet up with the third friend at a bar (who has discharged because he blew his hand or finger off in the war)
Not being able to find a job that pays decent, the three friends decide that they want have to rob an armored truck to support themselves and their families.
The soundtrack is just as good as the film. Featuring Artists such as Isaac Hayes, James Brown,  Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin, and Al Green.
9/10
