Soldiers of Change, also known as The Painting, is a 2001 romantic drama directed by Peter Manoogian and written by Buddy Sheffield, which centers on an explosive mix of love, war and fight for freedom. Randy Barrington (Heath Freeman) is an energetic fighter for civil rights during a period of political uncertainty and social turmoil in the 1960's United States. He believes with passion and dedication in equality, justice and honesty that should rule the society, and strongly opposes the dirty political games played by the government. However, his enthusiasm quickly transforms into desperation when he is drafted and deployed to Vietnam, to fight in a war and for a cause that he doesn't support. Randy must survive to return home and reunite with his beloved woman of African-American origin, Hallie (Stacey Dash), whose brother doesn't approve of her passionate affair with a white man. Randy finds himself fighting both physical and psychological battles, as he tries to find peace of mind amidst the surrounding chaos.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 40

    The Hollywood Reporter Sheri Linden

    Too squeaky-clean to convey the turbulence of the period.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Moving from tragedy to tragedy, the film teeters along unsteadily, showing events we've seen countless times before and then imploding under the weight of its ridiculous ending.

    Film Threat

    This is the sort of film that would drive Miss Daisy to upchuck at the shenanigans of its saintly, cardboard characters and its bizarre, rose-colored depiction of U.S. race relations.
