Audience Reviews for Andersonville
Andersonville stands out as one of the best American Civil War films in terms of the quality of the authenticity, the acting/casting, and the production values. The Andersonville Camp is a controversial subject and there will be those who feel that this movie is either a sugar-coated treatment or an unfair condemnation, but I feel -- as with most things -- that the answer lies somewhere in between. Try to keep an open mind regardless of what color you root for. I have to say that the scene towards the end where the prison inmates methodically march away en masse from the rebel colonel who offers them release in exchange for fighting with the Confederacy was a bit over-done. I personally think that had they simply turned their backs and walked away silently, by ones and twos, it would have been a bit more dramatic, not to mention realistic. Other than this little hiccup -- and it's a subjective one, to be sure -- Andersonville more than hits the mark.
good war show. it is unbelievable how when they are on the battlefield they are dedicated brothers but when they are forced to live in such horrible and deathly conditions it turns into brother vs. brother all to survive. it marvels me.
Awesome and depressing story of the hell that was the south's prison camps during The Civil War. Get a great, but depressing and brutal history lesson and see this soon. I had no idea.
