Glory is, without question, one of the best movies ever made about the American Civil War.
James Berardinelli — ReelViews
It is the movie's often awesome imagery and a bravely soaring choral score by James Horner that transfigure the reality, granting it the status of necessary myth.

Matthew Broderick [is] catastrophically miscast as Shaw.

In its broad strokes, Glory gets at the spirit of a group of previously unsung black heroes, and the filmmaking is of a high caliber. [Blu-ray]

Still one of the best war epics ever made, with all around fantastic performances...
