Movie Reviews

Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies - 9/10 by Nell Minow The film-maker's relentless even-handedness removes whatever drama the story might have had by making every one of the characters endlessly honorable, devoted to God, home, and family, good to the slaves, and able to spout poetry or the Bible.
Entertainment Weekly - 9/10 by Owen Gleiberman A trial to sit through: stiff, ponderous, fluttering in its 'poetry,' and crudely simplistic as an apologia for the Confederate ideology.
Reel.com - 9/10 by Tor Thorsen Slowly drags viewers through a morass of cardboard caricatures, tedious dialogue, and stultifying skirmishes for over four hours, if you count the previews and intermission.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert Roten Unlike 'Gettysburg,' however, 'Gods and Generals' is slow-moving and stilted and is punctuated by speeches rather than drama and action.
Decent Films Guide - 9/10 by Steven D. Greydanus Everybody is so good and decent that it's hard to tell where the generals leave off and the gods start.
Film Journal International - 8/10 by Bruce Feld Not showing any of the negatives of slavery costs Gods and Generals a good deal of credibility.
Journal News (Westchester, NY) - 8/10 by Marshall Fine Just an overextended historical pageant: lifeless tableaux, assembled under the mistaken impression that bigger and longer is the same as important and interesting.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI) - 8/10 by Anita Schmaltz A more appropriate title would be The Great Whitewashing of the Rebellion.
culturevulture.net - 8/10 by Arthur Lazere A torpid pageant, rather than the powerful human drama that is inherent in the material
One Guy's Opinion - 7/10 by Frank Swietek An honorable try, but also a trying picture...While the battle recreations are expertly done, everything else in the movie has a stilted, historical-pageant feel.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - 7/10 by Dave Tianen So long-winded that it sometimes feels like the Civil War in real time.
Reeling Reviews - 7/10 by Robin Clifford It amazes me that the production team that produced the fine "Gettysburg" are the same ones involved with "Gods and Generals."
