An unforgettable story of the Civil War.
The more you know about the Civil War, the more you'll appreciate Gods and Generals and the painstaking attention to detail that Gettysburg writer-director Ronald F. Maxwell has invested in this academically respectable 220-minute historical pageant. In adapting Jeffrey Shaara's 1996 novel (encompassing events of 1861-63, specifically the Virginian battles of Bull Run, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville), Maxwell sacrifices depth for scope while focusing on the devoutly religious "Stonewall" Jackson (Stephen Lang), whose Confederate campaigns endear him to Gen. Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall, giving the film's most subtle performance). Battles are impeccably recreated using 7,500 Civil War re-enactors. As the first part of a trilogy that ends with The Last Full Measure, this is a superbly crafted, instantly essential film for Civil War study.

This movie was more than excellent. Before watching it I thought that the reviews I had read previously were wrong, but they were not. This film actually shows true history instead of the historical revisionism that you get in the public schools which portray the South as evil and racist. After the film was over I was almost ashamed to live in the North.
How I long for the days where the States were sovereign and there was no big government like Lincoln promoted. And where are the Christians leaders like Jackson in America today? Let us raise up men of God to be the leaders of the next generation.
Gods and Generals - DVD – Scott E, 09/09/2005
According to many film critics, this is the best Civil War movie ever made! Though I haven't seen every Civil War movie out there, I have to say it is the best one I ever saw! The filmmakers made it a point to pay attention to the details. The battle scenes and the dialogue are as close to actual history as possible. Much of the dialogue is quoted verbatim from real historical sources. This is not a work of Hollywood fiction!
Jackson and Lee were brave, Christian men--this also comes through clear in the movie.
The movie is not perfect, but it is highly entertaining, historically accurate, and bold about the Christian faith of the generals (bolder than most Christian movies I've seen). I give it five stars.

This movie was told from the South persective. Being an African American it was hard to watch our brothers and sisters in the Lord not get that ALL men should be free.
