Synopsis:
The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the American Civil War, "Glory" stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Broderick and Elqes are the idealistic young Bostonians who led the regiment; Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops; and Denzel Washington, in an Oscar-winning performance is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts. Despised by the South, distrusted by the North, the 54th overcame seemingly insurmountable odds in their fight to join the war for freedom.
Underpaid and ill-equipped, facing certain death at the hands of the Confederacy, the 54th rose to every challenge; their courage, skill and sacrifice paying the way for the Union's ultimate victory.

Emotional ride through the horrors of a war of battles - Glory review by AB

Spoiler Alert
01/11/2018

A film that tugs at the tear ducts in the final reels and depicts (again) the bravery of men (in all of history) who go into battle knowing that they may not come out of it alive, whatever their beliefs and reasons for fighting. These battles were of the "close combat" type where fitness, training, adrenalin all played their part in keeping you alive, as well as camaraderie, luck and judgement. The battle scenes here will make you proud of men who fought in such conflicts, especially given that this film is based on fact.
