The message is greater than the military violence. 15 and over should view this!!

This is one of the most powerful movies I have ever seen. It is not so much a movie about racism as it is about overcoming obstacles, living courageously, and demonstrating wisdom. Not only do the African-Americans have to deal with their struggle, the main character Robert Gould Shaw (played by Broderick) must overcome pressures from the well-to-do circles he runs in and those that question his motives. There are powerful images of courage and as one scene describes, "there is more to life than rest. There is character and strength of heart." THESE are messages that we must share with our teenagers who all to often do not respect or understand what it takes to sacrifice to a purpose greater than self. The movie is violent, but in a military, reality sense. I believe it should be required viewing for history classes.

glory is a really Great War film, the battle scenes are exciting, the performances are awesome, Denzel Washington is amazing in this :-), and it had some kickass moments too, such as when the 54th regiment causes a ruckus during payday

If you can handle violence, you can watch this movie.

A movie all Americans must see. I was in 7th grade when I first saw this movie in class. I was mature enough to handle it, and mature enough to love it. It is very violent. Not for the easily offended.

a beautiful and inspiring movie that emotionally stays with you days after

ACTING - 4.5/5 (Morgan Freeman and Denzel Washington both gave Oscar-worthy performances, Denzel Washington won the Best Supporting Actor) CINEMATOGRAPHY - 5/5 (Just simply stunning, the angles, the lighting, just simply amazing) SOUND - 4.5/5 - (The cannons, muskets, and cries of war were all haunting and mezmerizing) MUSICAL SCORE - 3.5/5 - (The main theme is overplayed just a bit, but it only takes away little to none of the enjoyment) ART/ SET DIRECTION - 5/5 - (The settings and actions ring true to the days of the Civil War) Overall, a emotional powerhouse that can jerk anybody in tears when the end credits start rolling
