Description

The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War, Glory stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Broderick and Elwes are the idealistic young Bostonians who lead the regiment; Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops; and Denzel Washington, in an Oscar® - winning performance (1989, Best Supporting Actor), is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts.

    this was my introduction to the war genre, I heard nothing but great things about it, so I asked for it for Christmas and all I can say is, I have no faults with it, the lineup is great, performances are great (especially from Matthew Broderick who proves he can do a drama just as well as the lighthearted movies he’s most known for being in), Denzel Washington (his performance was the standout if you ask me), and Morgan Freeman (Robert Shaw May have been the leader, but Rawlins was the glue that held the regiment together), music score is excellent, there’s plenty of classic moments like the pay day gone wrong scene and the campfire scene leading up to the ft Wagner battle, and the battle scenes are really hard hitting (you feel like you’re right there fighting with them and the best one was the battle of ft Wagner since it showed the courage and sheer bravery of the 54th regiment). I most definitely recommend this masterpiece

    Never forgot about this since I first saw it in the 90s, it almost felt like I was there. Makes you appreciate how far we come, demonstrates bravery, courage and leadership. Makes you want to help our fellow brothers today. Never forget.

    this is a fine film. The pace and depth of the characters make this film watchable and noteworthy. Excellent cinimatography,excellent restaging of battles and a stellar cast make this one for the top of the list.

  • Good movie despite Broderick's wooden performance.

    A Good movie for the most part, despite Matthew Broderick being miscast as Col. Shaw. Mr. Broderick's performance in this comes across as wooden and uninspiring to me. That also goes for some of the other actors playing the white officers. But the African American actors in their roles do shine and make this film a worth while must see. The final battle on Ft. Wagner is very well presented even if it's not entirely historically acurate. The mass grave burial scene at the end is still something i think about, with that haunting chorus music, so well made. A very Good flick.
  • Where is the soundtrack? Like to purchase it but not album only

    I think that this movie should be raised from 5 measly dollars to 20$. Like all of the other great movies on here I also think this movie is superbe it's shaped me as a person as did most Civil War movies did when I was little. I am 13 years old
