Movie Reviews

  • there may be no miracles or choirs of angels here, but religiosity, although restrained, is pervasive
    2 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • there are too many moral gradations, and the tale really can't be encapsulated as the struggle of one person or set of people to accomplish a goal
    1 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • the movie takes a long time to establish its baldest development
    1.5 of 4 by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • the film is ultimately a stodgy, overblown and repetitive slog
    2 of 5 by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the fight for religious freedom is bloody in this picture, and inspiring as well
    3 of 4 by Soren Anderson [Seattle Times ]
  • stay strong even through a surplus of blood and tears
    3 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • politics aside, "For Greater Glory's" main issue is this: It's an overwrought action film that will bludgeon you into submission
    1 of 4 by Tom Horgen [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • it is plodding, lazily filmed, gassy with James Horner's score, and pads its runtime only by way of tolling repetition
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • in its use of locations and sets, it's an impressive achievement by director Dean Wright, whose credits include some of the effects on the "Lord of the Rings" films
    2.5 of 4 by Roger Ebert [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • has all the bloody fervor of a "Braveheart;" all that's missing is its Mel Gibson
    2 of 5 by Kerry Lengel [Arizona Republic ]
  • bring some depth and dignity to a script that is sincere but clunky
    Review rate : B- by Nell Minow [Beliefnet ]
  • bring coffee, because director Dean Wright's dramatization of the 3-year-long Cristero War (1926-9) seems to last longer than the Mexican conflict itself
    1 of 4 by Brett Michel [Boston Phoenix ]
