The film's chief virtue is its spectacular choreography. The final battle... is a striking combination of dynamism and clarity.

The battle scenes are graphically brutal yet lyrical. In Glory, war is equal parts hell and heaven.

"Glory" is most memorable for some quieter scenes... that capture more elusive aspects of its story - and that help audiences to grasp the underlying significance of what the 54th achieved.

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]

A pretty watchable and always interesting period film, well photographed by English cinematographer Freddie Francis.
