I'm overly sentimental sometimes.

The American Civil War is by far the war that lasts forever in this countries collective memory and was decreed in absentia by the flawed original signing of the Declaration of Independence leaving slavery intact. You would think that makes for great films and in many cases it did,however rarely do they have mass appeal. This 2014 release that sometimes seems longer then its 96 minutes,a flaw in pacing,is not preachy yet stark in some of its depiction that may seem uneven at times.Its based on a historic battle fought by cadets from VMI (Virginia Military Institute) that still exists today.However its also a coming of age film and in that sense some might find it corny,I didn't.The young actors were good but unknown to me.The "b"level adult actors were also good and you'll recognize a few,yet less screen time than the youngins.So if you like a somewhat different twist to a Civil War film yet keeping it "real"you might enjoy it.I certainly was pleasantly surprised.One of my lesser known gems.

Not Bad Despite Low Production Values...

Ever since having seen Ken Burns' magnificent documentary, "The Civil War", I've become somewhat of a "Civil War buff". Remember that episode of "Seinfeld"- George is like, "I always wanted to be a Civil War buff"- ?? LOL I saw this movie off Netflix the other day- pretty much standard direct-to-video fair in terms of overall production values. But I still liked this movie. It is based on the Battle of New Market fought in Virginia on May 15, 1864 in the American Civil War. The cast was good- Jason Isaacs, Lauren Holly, Keith David, David Arquette and Tom Skeritt played Ulysses S. Grant. President Lincoln was played by an actor named Michael Krebs, who has portrayed Lincoln in film and presentations throughout the United States. The main characters were a group of young people mostly played by unknowns, which worked out since it was less certain who would make it out alive at the end. All-in-all, thumbs up for this one.

Civil War Potboiler

In order to like this film you (a) have to like subjects about the American Civil War and (b) you have to tolerate loads of fake Southern accents. I would also add that the first part of this film moves exceedingly slowly and is apt to bore the starch out of the most patient viewer.

There is altogether too much build-up and not enough genuine material to make this a worthwhile film. Yes, the southern boys were courageous - but so were the Yankees. Yes, most of the clashes between blue and gray were massive infantry battles which were poorly directed by the field generals and resulted in massive casualties on both sides. Yes, VMI is full of pomp and circumstance - and was drawn out way too long.

In short, a boring and semi-factual film that breaks no new ground in the telling of the New Market battle or the war in general. The characters are mostly stereotypes so if you doze off you can reconnect later with no loss of story line.

I gave the film a 5 solely for the costume attention to detail.
