About the Movie
The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War, Glory stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Broderick and Elwes are the idealistic young Bostonians who lead the regiment; Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops; and Denzel Washington, in an Oscar® - winning performance (1989, Best Supporting Actor), is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is a good, moving, complicated film.
Fresh: It is the movie's often awesome imagery and a bravely soaring choral score by James Horner that transfigure the reality, granting it the status of necessary myth.
Fresh: A stirring and long overdue tribute to the black soldiers who fought for the Union cause in the Civil War.
Fresh: It's hard not to get carried along.
I remember seeing this is in HighSchool. They actually showed it to us during class... It was hard not to cry in front of my classmates... This movie is very powerful and ageless... GREAT acting by Mr. Washington. Well, it finally appeared on Itunes and I snatched it up. Downloading now as I type.
I've seen alot of civil war movies like Gettysburg but this one is my favorite has good battle scenes and for a movie made in 1989 it has good graphics
An excellent movie
Excellent documentation of historic issues generally overlooked by most authors
