Critic Reviews for The Last Confederate: The Story of Robert Adams

The film is passionately made, but its unapologetically romantic views of war and the Old South leave a bitter aftertaste.

It's easy to keep blaming Ken Burns for this kind of softcore Civil War porn, but enough is enough: This is a vanity project of the most indulgent order.

Audience Reviews for The Last Confederate: The Story of Robert Adams

The story didn't seem interesting or compelling enough to be made into a movie. The acting was also way below what I expected.

First of all I'm a sucker for civil war dramas that promise romance so that right there drew me in. Nice true story but could have been done so much better. I give credit to the family for trying and there were a few good moments of elegant and beautiful cinematography.

I'm always happy to see a story set during The Civil War, especially if it's told from the Southern perspective. I saw the trailer and thought it must have been shot very cheap but decided to watch it anyway given my interest in war films. Well, it was shot very cheap. But this film should be a model for films shot with a low budget. The story was very interesting. And it's based on actual events which makes it even more so. The sets were very impressive. I thought the battle sequences could have been coordinated better, but then again, it was very low-budget. I still didn't understand the background of this production til I was viewing the credits...Robert Adams was played by Julian Adams. Hmmm. Not only was Julian Adams playing his Great Great Grandfather, but he also produced the movie and wrote the screenplay. Has anything like this ever been done? Very fascinating stuff. I also thought Gwendolyn Edwards was perfect for this movie. I'd be anxious to hear other people's thoughts on The Last Confederate. I for one liked it very much. I only wish more money could have been spent on the production.
