Impressive, darn impressive
(This comment is valid to the DVD issue)
This film, about one of the first colored regiments on the Federal
side, is not the best war film I've seen, but it comes close. But with
the extra material, which is the best I've can remember ever have seen,
it ranks among the very best.
The direction by Edward Zwick, the acting by Morgan Freeman, Matthew
Broderick and Denzel Washington, among others. are all top rate, and
the story about the 54th Massachusetts is fairly well told, but I must
say that the first featurette is almost its equal in intensity and
importance, being a very well done historical presentation of what the
54th did though its operating career - that in a way continues to this
very day, and some more information about who these men were, their
background, et cetera. That it is narrated by Morgan Freeman, doesn't
hurt it one bit :-)!
Well worth your money, and a good complement to the movie

Simply Amazing - Among the Best War Films Ever
Every element is stunningly perfect in this must-see film for history
fans and everyone else. Starring Matthew Broderick, "Glory" tells the
poignant story of the Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Massachusetts
Regiment and their role in a half forgotten battle that, in Lincoln's
own words, changed the tide of the war.
The entire cast was incredible in their unforgettable roles. If you are
turned off by "seeing Ferris Bueller play soldier", think again.
Broderick plays a perfect Shaw from personality right down to
appearance. The story may be based on Shaw's letters, but Morgan
Freeman, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes, Andre Braugher, and Jhimi
Kennedy add dimension to the Civil War by bringing their diverse
characters to life because it really is a rich man's war and a poor
The action is disappointing only if you watched expecting to see the
blood and gore that many war films exhibit. Violence is a very real
part of war, but it goes so much beyond that. That is what we see in
"Glory". Even beneath the messages against bigotry, we see the basic
human nature, and that itself speaks for equality. Despite their
differences, the rich, privileged white Harvard men, the runaway slaves
with chips in their soldiers, and the intelligent freemen with class
all face the same danger. Death does not discriminate, but people do,
and that's what they're all fighting against.
James Horner's composing is possibly at its best in "Glory", as his
soundtrack sums up the terrors, courage, souls, and yes, glory of war
in music alone. It makes the touching parts all the more poignant with
its tear jearking element.
It cannot be said enough times: "Glory" is spectacular, amazing,
mesmerizing, shocking, wonderful, and stunning in every way a film
should be. Few movies, history or otherwise, can compare. You have to
watch it to believe it. 10/10.
