"Buffalo Soldiers" Trailer

A new First Sergeant (played by Scott Glenn) screws up Elwood’s setup and everything blows up after a weapons deal gone wrong with Turkish drug dealers. If you’re looking for a break from reverential Hollywood movies that “respect the troops,” this over-the-top movie offers some black laughs about the less-than-noble side of military life. (2001)
