    Civil War unseen

    Glory is a story of a minor regiment that had a profound impact on the future of blacks in the Union Army. One can still see the prejudice that is held by many of the North and how the race is view as a whole, but it also give the view of what they had to endure amongst themselves. As for actors selected, I found Matthew Brokerick and Cary Elwes harder to believe in thier roles of Col Shaw and Major Forbes, but that may just be I had seen them star in comedies before and this was the first major drama that I saw them in. As for the black actors, they did very will and were very believable in thier roles. Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman are dramatic actors and fit thier roles like a silk glove on a lady's hand. For those that are historian buffs that do not mind the added elements that Hollywood adds for story, then this is one that should be considered as a part of any Civil War buff's collection.

    A moving story from America's bitter history

    Even though it is a bit dramatized, Glory is one of the first films to highlight the courage of both free black men and aristocratic white men in Northern States during the 19th century American Civil War. While there are examples of black men fighting in earlier American wars, this film makes a fairly successful attempt to illustrate how the collision of general prejudice and progressive political ideals of the time compel a regiment of men to serve with distinguished honor and courage against military, social, and even self-perpetuated enemies. A good film to watch!

    I've seen this movie and have a thing for history. Though the movie glamorizes the actual civil war story (what movie doesn't), it still shows the tenacity of a soldier willing to fight and the issues the northern white folks (including military officers) still had with African-American soldiers! I gave the movie 4 stars because the Blu-Ray didn't enhance the movie much. Then again, most of these era movies (Terminator comes to mind) weren't shot that high-res as today.

    Can’t shy away from the importance this film has on showcasing the history of our nation! Young Denzel and Freeman are phenomenal in this film. Pq looks clean and updated given for its time. Aq is a little lacking in the vocal department and a few moments where bass is a little loose. Overall it’s the best version of the film available!

    This is a great movie that's held up well over the past 30 years. Great storytelling, great characters, and fantastic cinematography. You can't ask for much more than what this movie delivers. Denzel Washington is great, of course. I would highly recommend.

    A most wonderful movie that moves along with the daily lives of the first black volunteers and their officers who fought in the Civil War. This also covers some of the prejudices they suffered with both those whose side they were fighting with and also their enemies. The subject matter is so relevant.

    Well acted Civil War piece about the US' first black regiment, the 54th Volunteer out of Mass. Great performances from Morgan Freeman and Denzel Washington (who won an oscar) as well as Cary Elwes and Mathew Broderick, who seems fittingly out of place. Fairly accurate historically, and a good watch!

    This depiction of the 54th Mass and their rise to the assault on Battery Wagner tells a story that all should know. A few artistic license points do not detract from the real story of the rise of black Americans in defense of their country and in the fight against slavery

    This is a great film and I’m so glad I was able to find it. The price was reasonable and the fact it is on Blu Ray makes it really so much better. The quality of the color and sound is like watching it again for the first time.

    Excellent - and true - Civil War story. I recalled Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington, and each of them does well. But Carey Elwes and Mr. "I HAVE PEOPLE SKILLS!" are also in here.

    For a long time I never knew there were Black Soldiers in the Civil War. After I saw this movie the first time, it made me want to do more research on our other contributions that aren't really talked about

    I recommend adding this one to the collection for any who loves classic movies. 1989 A-listers who you'd be surprise to see so young. Great movie with a great storyline.

    This is an ambitious film and is successful in everything it sets out to accomplish. Glory does not rely on the visual aspects to accomplish its perfection.
