Glory

4

Civil War epic starring Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman

Never mind that this tribute to America’s first black Army regiment views their Civil War heroics through the eyes of a white commanding officer (Matthew Broderick).

Glory remains a striking, stirring history lesson full of epic battle scenes, impressive visuals from DoP Freddie Francis and fine performances from Morgan Freeman, Andre Braugher and an Oscar-winning Denzel Washington.

Spitting rage as a runaway slave, the latter lingers long in the memory – as does the movie’s spectacular and gruelling climax, a suicidal assault on an impenetrable Confederate stronghold.
