Review of Glory

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2017 (30 movies items)

" VHS- 2hrs. 2min. First Viewing The script is rather basic, and it has the wrong lead character, but Glory still often manages to be a strong Civil War epic that actually engages in racial discussions, and features several thrilling action set pieces. It's all lavishly made; there's no technical department where the film is lacking. What really makes the movie work is the cast, especially Denzel Washington in his Oscar-winning breakout role. He, and the rest of the cast, elevate the perfunctory "
