Gatlin is a fictional town, but the Battle of Honey Hill was a real Civil War battle in South Carolina. The film gives the wrong date for it: December 21, 1864. It actually took place November 30, 1864. See more »
Im 33 years old and probably not in the main-group for this movie (teengirls maybe). But me and my friend got a free ticket and went for this movie we would normally not had seen.
But i was charmed. The young actors played well, was cute and had chemistry together. We smiled many times, and the effects was good. The story was OK, and i have never read the story this movie is build on.
This is a good movie i think, and probably they will make more movies so we see how the story will go. I found it fun with the southern small town fun of religious narrowness. And the fight between good and evil is a fight in many of the fantasy-movies, and that was a red line in this movie and worked good.
Fun also to see Emma Thompson, she did a awesome actor-work.
