During the final days of World War I, a regiment of daring African-American "Buffalo Soldiers"is trapped deep behind enemy lines.

Unfortunately, despite his obvious passion for the genre, Luke doesn't yet have the cinematic chops (or clearly, the budget) to effectively put his vision onscreen.

Although writer-director Steven Luke’s reach often exceeds his grasp, he’s managed to present a meaningful, largely involving, if decidedly small-scale and fictionalized story about race, courage and comradeship.

It simply does not have the budget or craft for the scale it requires.
