Tributes are pouring in for Chadwick Boseman. The world was plunged into a state of shock and sadness when news of the actor's death to cancer hit the world. Hollywood celebrities, fans and just about everyone who had known or heard of Boseman expressed their condolences. It wasn't surprising that Twitter exploded with an avalanche of tweets that had shock, disbelief, and praise for the actor's work in cinema. One of the films most discussed, other than 'Black Panther', was Netflix's 'Da 5 Bloods' directed by Spike Lee. 

The film follows four men from the First Infantry Division of the US Army. Paul (Delroy Lindo), Otis (Clarke Peters), Eddie (Norm Lewis), and Melvin (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) set out for Vietnam to find the treasure they left there as well as the remains of their fallen commander, Stormin' Norman (Chadwick Boseman). Paul's son David (Majors) tags along with the crew without his father's permission and ends up with the team for the remainder of the journey. Over the course of the battle back during the Vietnam war, Norman falls during a firefight. Paul realizes he was the one who actually killed Norman accidentally during the fight. The final scene is the one that's heartbreaking, where Norman is shown to hug and forgive Paul saying: "It was an accident, I forgive you." Fans remembered the scene and felt they could never watch it again as it would have a completely different feel to it.

"Chadwick Boseman made multiple films while suffering a 4 year-long battle with cancer, talk about a f*ckin' fighter. His last scene in Da 5 Bloods will be too much to bare now after this. RIP, a literal king," a fan wrote.



 

"Gonna be real hard to rewatch this one, now. Holds a different weight to it.," remarked one of the fans.



 

"The past 4 years he’s been in some of the biggest films in history, and a part of me feels that he did that to take care of his family. He made sure they would be taken care of for life," a fan tweeted.



 

And the tributes just followed. "This movie was so f*cking good. Very different from modern films but in a good way. A true Spike Lee classic. RIP Stormin’ Norman. RIP Black Panther. RIP Chadwick Boseman."



 

Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side, his publicist, Nicki Fioravante, told The Associated Press. Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, his family said in a statement.

"A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” his family said in the statement. “From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more- all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in 'Black Panther'."
