For Greater Glory takes what should have been an involving, even shocking hidden part of history and turns it into a needless epic

As generic as the title, this historical drama spares no cliche in depicting Mexico's Cristero War of the late 1920.

If you're making a movie aimed at people of a particular faith, you might want to cut it below an R-rating. And if you're going to attempt an epic, you need to spend more money than this.

This drama styles itself as a cinematic epic, but its substance is as flimsy as a Jack Chick pamphlet.

It is well-made, yes, but has such pro-Catholic tunnel vision I began to question its view of events.

It's the stuff of real life, and of high drama, but Dean Wright's directorial debut translates little of that latter quality to the screen.

The film is awash in blandly brown-toned cinematography, action scenes more violent than rousing, and a whole host of bathetic subplots.

[It] seems to last longer than the Mexican conflict itself. I saw the movie a month ago, and I'm not entirely convinced that it's ended yet.

If you want to understand what's happening, you might want to read up on the Cristero War before you go.

This movie either needed to be longer, to expand the storylines that were lacking, or shorter, cutting all the stories and characters that weren't fully developed.

Takes its cues from the Mel Gibson School of Screen Martyrdom, making sure this education on Mexican history carries significant ugliness.

It is plodding, lazily filmed, gassy with James Horner's score, and pads its runtime only by way of tolling repetition.

Ultimately the movie has too much going on to be primarily a campy pleasure.

A seemingly three-year drama about a three-year war.

Curiously, rookie director Dean Wright can't seem to make a struggle for one of the most basic rights all that interesting.

Solemn and fervent,delivering an educational history lesson that defeats itself because of its R-rating.

It is a scattered mess, as earnest as a folk song, but like a folk song that goes on for two hours and 23 minutes.

The result is pretty much as forgettable as the Cristeros War.

The scenes just plod along without much to help distinguish them. It's not an epic movie so much as an epic run-on sentence.
