Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The jamming together of so much history and melodrama makes for a handsome movie that is only rarely gripping. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, May 31, 2012

Rotten: Despite enough good intentions to pave a four-lane highway, the ardently sincere but dramatically unfocused For Greater Glory plays like a multipart miniseries that has been hacked down to feature length. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jun 1, 2012

Rotten: Ultimately a stodgy, overblown and repetitive slog. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, May 31, 2012

Rotten: This historical drama about the little-known Cristero War in 1920s Mexico is more educational than involving. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 1, 2012

A Must See for all Believers!

It is a catholic-faith based movie, but gives all denominations a great message ;-)

Outstanding Film!

This film should be watched not only by Catholics but also anyone who wants to see an outstanding movie with truly superb acting and excitement. The attention to detail and the true events which inspired this film have been brought together for an enjoyment that the whole family can see. I just wish I could give it ten stars but iTunes only goes to five. This film is Oscar material.

For The Greater Cause

A "Must See" movie. Excellent acting and soundtrack. On par with "The Passion" in terms of performance and context. This movie should NOT be ignored!
