Flopped in the middle, and soft on the Confederates
1 April 2016 | by GwydionMWSee all my reviews

I likes the first and last 20 minutes, when there is dramatic action. But between the two, there was much too much banal personal stuff.

None of it done well enough to be interesting. I found myself uninterested in their personal concern

I also found it offensive in the way it showed a lot of misbehavior on the Union side but not similar stuff among the Confederates.

Both sides were intolerant and the Confederates were first with conscription. The Confederate government was so corrupt that the front line troops were hungry even thought the Confederacy had plenty of food. (Enough for General Sherman to live off later.)

The battle scenes were realistic, but at the end of the day it was unclear what had happened. An explanation afterward would have improved the film for me.
