Watch Gods and Generals - Alternative Versions.
I've seen Gods and Generals twice, and I've enjoyed it both times. The
critics I've read seem to object to the piety, the length, and lack of
political correctness. It seems to have escaped them that the Civil War
fought in Victorian times, and that the Victorians were extremely pious
sentimental, not to mention hypocritical. However, this did not stop them
from efficiently making war on their enemies. The movie caught this
perfectly, with Jackson's assumption that God's will is his will -- the
scene before the battle on Sunday, the contrast between his sentimental
of children and his 'Kill them all' about his enemies, the constant
references to Bible verses ripped out of context.
Regarding the length of the movie, all I can say is that I wasn't bored at
all, or restless, just fascinated with what was happening on screen. I'm
sure for MTV critics any movie over 90 minutes is epic.
Regarding the lack of political correctness, which in my opinion is our
modern version of hypocrisy (we can do anything we want as long as we call
it by another name) I would like to point out that this is an attempt at a
historical movie and that the Civil War was NOT fought to free the slaves,
nor were many people in the North comfortable with the concept of a
franchised Negro. And some slaves in the South were relatively well
by their owners, not that they probably didn't want freedom, but they
particularly wish their masters ill. The system was set up so that
involved, slaves and masters, had something to lose by destroying the
quo, and that's a very difficult thing for people to do. It's easy for us
now to say 'they should have freed the slaves' but if you knew that to
your slaves would beggar your children, would you be able to do it?
As with Gettysburg, the battle scenes were impressive and awe-inspiring.
And they made the strategy and tactics clear to the viewer which is a
monumental achievement, not to mention showing the pure courage on both
sides, going to probably death or dismemberment without flinching. I
have liked more about the Northern command struggles to balance the
but I can see how tempting it was to show the Southern victories to
the horrible defeat at Gettysburg -- and this picture is meant to be one
a trilogy. I can only hope that word of mouth defeats the critics and
this movie the audience it deserves.
