This is not a Stanley Kubrick Film...
8 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bunch of amateurs ran around with camcorders as hundreds of weekend warriors (possibly after a beer-fest) put on uniforms and tried to play act. The audio is so poor it should have subtitles. Many scenes include soldiers standing around waiting for direction while white plumes of smoke appear here and there. The cameramen can't seem to hold a shot or let go of the cheap power zoom.

Quick summary of Scene 7: A group of Union soldiers are running. The General waving his sword in the air gets shot and falls. Two men drop their guns, come to his aid and try to help him run again. One gets shot. The General taps the shoulder of the other heavy guy (wearing light blue SWEAT pants) like he wants to be released. The heavy guy lets him go, forgets his gun, runs a few more steps then walks like the scene is over. In the mean time the General gets shot again and throws his arms back exactly like the first time. No shot effects... just acting. The General sweating on the ground looks like a binge drinker with heat stroke. The Union soldiers have all gone back the way they came. From this same direction a group of Confederate soldiers arrive.

They shouldn't tout this like it's a big budget epic drama. This looks like a no budget unplanned weekend shoot. Ken Burns does a much better job with still photos.
