For Greater Glory 2012

     Mexican patriots risk their lives to defeat an oppressive atheistic government in the Cristero War from 1926-1929.  Men and women make the decision to fight the government for family, faith and the future of Mexico.  Loosely based on real events.
     This film seems like a miniseries fortunately shown in one session and not as long as it might have been.  Will there be a test at the end and will we still be awake to take it?  Not enough background story on the characters and seems to try to have the largest body count per minute.  The last portion is the best section if you can keep watching.  3* (This movie is OK)

150 min, Drama directed by Dean Wright with Andy Garcia, Oscar Isaac, Eva Longoria, Peter O’Toole, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Ruben Blades, Bruce McGill.

Note:  Blockbuster 3 ½*, imdb 6.2 out of 10, 18% critic 76% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
