In terms of technical skill and storytelling ability, it falls flat before getting a chance to get on its feet.

Dean Wright's film confirms that there isn't a film that truly depicts the Revolution yet. [Full Review in Spanish]

For Greater Glory takes what should have been an involving, even shocking hidden part of history and turns it into a needless epic
June 23, 2012
The compelling archival footage, which literally made me gasp aloud, and the incredible, disturbing photos are amazing. Unfortunately, you'll see them only during the end credits of 'For Greater Glory.'
June 15, 2012
It's the kind of now-obscure subject matter that could be fascinating if done well, but here just feels like an obligation. And yeah there's going to be a test, so good luck at not falling asleep in class.

The story deserves a better movie than it gets here ...
June 7, 2012
An interesting historical drama that only mildly entertains
June 4, 2012
Curiously, rookie director Dean Wright can't seem to make a struggle for one of the most basic rights all that interesting.
June 3, 2012
The film's length and muddled message will likely keep it from reaching much of an audience, even within the presumed Latino faith-based target.
June 2, 2012
Solemn and fervent,delivering an educational history lesson that defeats itself because of its R-rating.

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

You'll be forgiven (on earth if not in heaven) should you find yourself humming "Onward, Christian Soldiers" as you exit the theatre.

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.
June 1, 2012
"For Greater Glory" is at times so heavy-handed that the movie itself seems at war. Unfortunately, the enemy is not just a repressive administration, but the audience.
June 1, 2012
Despite enough good intentions to pave a four-lane highway, the ardently sincere but dramatically unfocused For Greater Glory plays like a multipart miniseries that has been hacked down to feature length.
June 1, 2012
This historical drama about the little-known Cristero War in 1920s Mexico is more educational than involving.
June 1, 2012
The sometimes painfully sincere and slow-moving "For Greater Glory" clearly aspires to be inspirational, but history won't cooperate.
June 1, 2012
The result is pretty much as forgettable as the Cristeros War.

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.
May 31, 2012
A bit -- okay, a lot -- more back-story probably would have been beneficial, as would have been a greater understanding of who characters are and what makes them tick. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)
