Storyline

During the 1864 battle of the Wilderness, three Union soldiers and three Confederate Soldiers get seperated from their units as twilight engulfs the ravaged battlefield. The men wander alone through the dangerous woods, separate of each other, until they meet by chance on the banks of a quiet creek. The men meet and spend the night around a campfire, not realizing they are enemies until the next morning when the sun rises and a new day of battle begins. Written by Kevin R. Hershberger

Trivia

The original first draft "Wicked Spring" script was written during the summer and fall of 1994 as an ultra low-budget short film. It was shelved then, but dusted off and re-written in the fall of 1999 as a feature film for LionHeart FilmWorks. See more »

Goofs

The rifles used would produce much more noise and smoke in war. The actors are more than likely using small powder loads and more modern powder. The recoil from firing would also throw the shooter's shoulder back if a full charge had been fired, rather than the small pop and almost no recoil. See more »

Inane and inaccurate
29 July 2004 | by (St. Petersburg) – See all my reviews

Plot less and inane. This incredibly boring movie made Gods and Generals look like an action flick. It seems the writer/director really doesn't have much to say about the Civil War experience. What little story there is could have been told in a fifteen minute short. Filming a few re-enactors shooting at each other in the woods is not much of a plot. On top of this the lead characters are flat and uninspired. What is also of interest is the fact that in the making of video the filmmakers emphasize the historical accuracy of the movie. I counted at least 9 major errors, the most glaring is the totally out of date train. If you claim historical accuracy you best deliver.
