Superb flick with just the right amount of action
I can't fault the movie, but perhaps I'm simply biased.
I was introduced to this movie at the age of 12 in the spring of 1992.
One of my friends from back then was a history buff who especially
loved all things about war and battles. No surprise then that he had
the VHS the moment it was available.
Seeing it for the first time on his small 12 inch TV, sat crooked
necked on his bed, I enjoyed every minute of it.
Today, the music fills me with emotions as I listen to its superb
soundtrack. By far the best moment is after Shaw is killed and 54
charge up the embankment fuelled by rage. The music at this moment is
powerful and stirring.
The film also depicts the human element very well and tells the story
of just what those men went through and the punishment they risked just
to get a chance to fight.
An excellent movies which must absolutely be seen..

This is a "war movie" that will not only entertain you perfectly but also leave you a better person!
To call "Glory" a "war movie" is akin to calling "Hamlet" a "ghost
story." While it is true that it is a movie set in the Civil War and
complete with realistic battle scenes, authentically reproduced
uniforms and weapons, and a film that introduces the viewer to an
important part of American history that had been more or less
ignored--the roles that African-American soldiers played in the Union
army--it is still so much more than that.
I don't think I will ever find the precise words to indicate how
satisfying and wonderful this film is and how much I love it. It is
highly entertaining, moving, realistic, and downright transcendent in
its beauty. Every actor does his job marvelously, from the amazing
portrayal of "Trip" by Denzel Washington, to the steady, inspiring
character that Morgan Freeman creates perfectly, to the baby-faced
Colonel Robert Gould Shaw played with sincerity and intensity by
Matthew Broderick, down to the minor role of the butt-kicking Irish
drill sergeant who abuses his black recruits physically and verbally,
calling them "You Mexican African whores!" and other lovely epithets.
(That latter actor, incidentally, wanted so badly to be a part of the
film that he offered to work for free!)
I'm frustrated when I recommend this movie to friends and others and
they respond with "I don't like war movies." Sure, Welles's "Citizen
Kane" is a movie about business, and Chaplin's "City Lights" is about
panhandling, not true?
But like those two wonders, "Glory" tells its story perfectly, complete
with great characters that you love, beautifully realized photography
and action, and a deep, emotional wellspring that leaves a viewer
lifted high above and beyond the TV room sofa. It is in my Top Five,
and it is one of those films I just have to see every year or so, like
the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy or "Bridge on the River Kwai," or "The
Godfather" movies. If you aren't thrilled to the depths of your being
during the last ten minutes of this movie, then you don't have a pulse.
It's just a great film, and if you've never seen it, do! It won't
disappoint, and it will be etched in your memory forever. It is a
