Movie Reviews

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.
Washington Post - 6/10 by Stephen Hunter One doesn't come away from it with any sense of what the victory cost in human terms.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 6/10 by William Arnold Lacks the driving unity that gave "Gettysburg" its focus, dramatic arc, climax and catharsis.
Common Sense Media - 6/10 by Nell Minow Meticulous Civil War story runs a little long.
Chicago Tribune - 6/10 by Michael Wilmington Has the unfortunate effect of overtipping the dramatic scales in favor of the Southern generals and turning almost everybody into waxen idols who spout flowery rhetoric.
L.A. Weekly - 5/10 by Ron Stringer By highlighting the human costs of slavery to everyone BUT the enslaved -- here, relations between African-American domestics and their owners are cordial, even respectful, on both sides -- Maxwell risks being pilloried as an apologist for that institution.
Chicago Reader - 5/10 by Bill Stamets Maxwell continues his textbook emphasis on military maneuvers, but despite literally thousands of Civil War reenactors recruited for the film, the wide-screen canvas fails to map the tactics or evoke the terror of battle.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli If ever there was a movie that could cause even the most restless sleeper to fall into a deep slumber, this is it.
Dallas Observer - 5/10 by Jean Oppenheimer Filled with so much religious righteousness--endless Bible-readings...that the film feels more like a recruitment tool for Soldiers for Christ than a look at the bloody four-year conflict that tore this nation apart.
Charlotte Observer - 5/10 by Lawrence Toppman As dry as a high school history book, solemn as a funeral service, humorless as a Politburo meeting, bloated as a waterlogged corpse and unbalanced as a bout between a debutante and a sumo wrestler.
Baltimore Sun - 4/10 by Michael Sragow Pious, high-minded and bad history.
Variety - 4/10 by Robert Koehler Gods and Generals is American history transformed into a museum movie, consistently making the flawed human characters at the heart of the Civil War into flawless figures Olympian in their statuesque remoteness.
