Historical drama
For Greater Glory is a docudrama on the Cristeros War that took place in Mexico from 1926 to 1929. It features some recognizable stars, such as Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria and Nestor Carbonell, as different people affected by the war. At times, the film is quite thought-provoking; however, it is too long and drawn out, with a befuddling ending. In fact, the movie just sort of stops. Also, the dialogue leaves something to be desired, in part due to Garcia’s James Cameron-style hero speeches that are spliced into the film at random intervals. On the bright side, the film looks spectacular, with amazing settings and outfits. They’re so good, in fact, that this movie should get nominations for costuming and set design at the Oscars.
