Trivia

What the film refers to as "grapeshot" is more commonly referred to as "canister"; bags full of musket balls fired from cannon, like a gigantic shotgun. "Grapeshot" is usually used to refer to much larger shot in a container that breaks up when fired; the name comes from its fancied resemblance to a bunch of grapes. See more »

The first true depiction of war
27 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Peter Watkins's much underestimated Docu-Drama that, frankly, has to be watched by the individual to have the maximum impact. This is, without doubt, the fairest and most realistic depiction of war in cinema history. Here we have no poetic licence and no particular bias, despite some claiming a strong swing in favour of the Jacobites. Men are men, war is war and blood is blood.

There are few ways in which to describe this masterpiece in a simple review. If you desire a stark wake up call to the brutality and pain that war and Civil War creates, get hold of a copy of this film.

If you are not moved, then you have no heart.
