Review of Glory

I want to make it clear that the score I am giving Glory means little to nothing. The reason for that, is because I honestly have no idea how to score this movie. I don't feel like this is the kind of movie that's made to entertain. It's made to make people appreciate what 54th Regiment did. It's a powerful movie, but I didn't find it to be very entertaining. I repeat, I don't think this movi... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point.  Eventually, even though it was definitely a powerful tale based on a really important piece of history, somehow, I didn’t really connect with the whole thing. I don’t know, somehow, it seemed to me that it was just a well made but maybe too straightforward historical epic feature... read more

Description: As the US Civil War protracts and drains even the vast resources of the north, an experiment is made with black troops, serving in a special regiment under an all-white officer corps. Since the traditional military establishment considers this a bad joke, the young abolitionist idealist Robert Gould Shaw from a very privileged family gets the rank of Colonel with the dubious honor to command the black volunteers, mainly illiterate former slaves.

Movie Reviews (1051-1100) (50 movies items)

" A film that finally show better that the Civil War wasn't just fought between white males on each side. It also dare show that there were internal problems between the different ethnic groups in the North as well and that even colored people was against freeing the slaves. Maybe the biggest fault is that this important story is told through a white man's eye for a long duration of the film and that he is played by a in-experienced looking Matthew Broderick. Poetic direction, violent battle sequ"

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 "
