A superb cast and a heroic true story get lost in the truly corny and completely unnecessary musical score. Ugh. This movie deserved better. Fine battle scenes.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box”.

The total deaths of the American Civil War are 625,000 while those of the Second World War are 418,500 Americans.
If you view the film, you can easily understand why so many people died in the Civil War.
Slavery has been totally abolished since, but the States hasn't learned the lesson yet, and it has been involved in so many wars and conflicts ever since.
Why is that?
It is probably because the States is to spend 711 billion dollars for defence in 2012, which is 41% of the world military expenditures.

EXCELLENT DOCUMENTARY FILM,,,,
Where ever there is oppression, repression & subjugation, there's resistance & revolution.
Therefore, this real-life documentary film made from DOCUMENTED LETTERS OF THE FRONT LINE WARRIORS represents, ordinary men & women are willing to leave their families behind to fight & die for FREEDOM & force the world to succumb to the NEW DESTINY of the freedom-warriors.
Subsequently, FREEDOM REIGNS.
The courage, determination, willpower & commitment of the freedom-warriors destroys subjugation, inheriting freedom for generations to come.
