Reviews:

It is too afraid of reality to depict truths. Rather it hides behind a facade of being artistically ‘old filmy’ in styling; as too paint the whole in the romanticised vision (whitewash) held by those that love the idea of the Civil War. It was rather unbearable to say the least.

***Way better than “Gettysburg”***

Even though I love the Civil War I waited a full six and a half years before catching the prequel “Gods and Generals” (2003). Why? Because 1993’s “Gettysburg” was so unimpressive. While “Gettysburg” has some worthwhile scenes it was merely okay on a whole, and sometimes downright tedious. How the filmmakers made the Civil War’s biggest battle boring (generally speaking) is beyond me.

Gods and Generals” is the prequel detailing the battles of First Bull Run, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, which are largely viewed through the lens of Stonewall Jackson (Stephan Lang) on the Confederate side and the Chamberlain brothers (Jeff Daniels and C. Thomas Howell) of Maine on the Union side. Also on hand is, of course, Robert E. Lee, played by Robert Duvall, who does a more engaging portrayal than Martin Sheen in “Gettysburg.” The film starts off slow and builds momentum. By contrast, “Gettysburg” started off slower and never became engaging with the exception of Little Round Top and Pickett’s Charge.

Where “Gods and Generals” really pulled me in was the battle scenes of Fredericksburg and the aftermath. It showed how Civil War troops were required to march, shoot & reload in formation while rifles and friggin’ cannons are blasting their way. The Chamberlain brothers had to sleep on the battlefield that night. Imagine sleeping amongst all those dead bodies and dying, moaning soldiers! This was very well done.

There are quite a few other great scenes, like the Yankee and Reb soldiers meeting in the middle of the river to exchange coffee for tobacco; the execution of three deserters; and the “perfect battle” for the Confederates at Chancellorsville where General Lee, with a much smaller force, takes the risk of dividing his army and executing a surprise attack. Unfortunately for the Confederates they won at a huge cost as General Jackson loses his “right arm” to friendly fire.

The story ends on a slow, melancholy note.

I was impressed with the battle in the town scene. The town looked so authentic. Watching the documentary afterward I learned how they accomplished this: they filmed it at Harpers Ferry, WV.

Some have complained that the Southern viewpoint is shown in a more positive light than the Northern, but I disagree. While it seems more time is spent with Jackson & Lee’s story, considerable time is certainly given to the North as well; the film does an excellent job of taking the middle road between the two positions.

The film was shot on location in Virginia, Maryland and Harpers Ferry, WV and runs 3 hours and 39 minutes. The Director’s Cut (which I haven’t seen) runs a full hour longer and features the bloody battle of Antietam and a subplot with John Wilkes Booth.

FINAL WORD: If you thought “Gettysburg” was boring don’t let that prevent you from checking out “Gods and Generals.” Yes, you have to be ready for a long movie and it does have some slow, dramatic parts but it builds momentum and it’s one of best Civil War films in helping the viewer visualize the battles and many other aspects.

WARNING: Believe it or not, the film shows overt depictions of Bible reading, citation and prayer!! It also dares to show Christianity and marriage (between a man and woman) in a positive light!! Oh my God!!!

GRADE: B+/A-

Quite A Tribute To ‘Stonewall’Jackson
This a decent movie and a wonderful tribute to a fine, fine man in General “Stonewall” Jackson, but I didn’t rate it higher only because it’s not a film I would watch many times. The lulls are just too long for a film that goes over 3 1/2 hours. For those who enjoyed the even-longer, but better “Gettysburg” this is must-viewing. I think a third movie would be in order to complete the Civil Story story.

What’s very impressive about this movie was (1) not overdone violence; (2) beautiful cinematography; (3) an unusual and refreshing reverence for God, the Bible and Christian thought and (4) a better portrayal by Robert Duvall of Robert E. Lee than Martin Sheen’s version in “Gettsyburg.” On the point 3, all it was – to those atheists/agnostics who were offended by Jackson’s reverence – was showing an accurate portrayal of how people thought and believed back then in the south. That’s simply the way it was and the way people viewed everyday life, though Biblical standards and language. So kudos, to the filmmakers here for at least giving us an accurate description of the times, even though they probably don’t share those beliefs. Of course, the critics – almost all of them secular – hated the film.

One thing I did miss from “Gettysburg” was a bigger role from Jeff Daniels, who was so good as “Col.Chamberlain.” His role here in that capacity is limited.

In summary, an accurate film with ideals and worthy of anyone’s collection, particularly if they are Civil War buffs, but a movie that needed more punch to it to be more “watchable.”

View with caution
It is obvious that the intent of the filmmakers was to present a grand, epic portrayal of the Civil War. Unfortunately, it is also cinematic version of the “Lost Cause,” the post Civil-War attempt by southerners to redefine the conditions and circumstances which led to the outbreak of war. Accordingly, Confederate soldiers are depicted in heroic, self-sacrificing terms, Robert E. Lee is elevated to mythic status and slaves are shown as submissive, complacent and loyal. The most glaring abuse of historical record is Stonewall Jackson, who’s film portrayal is devoid of the many eccentricities and foibles that add to this complex and interesting individual. If one shares this romantic, flawed interpretation of this period of American history, then it is worth the three+ hours of viewing. However, the viewer in search of accuracy and objectivity would do well to avoid this film entirely.
