Truth is, I put off watching this movie for a long time. I'm not exactly sure why, but even though I love Andy Garcia, I just wasn't that impressed with the trailer. Well, I just finished watching it and let me tell you it's a great movie!!! Even in bad movies, Andy Garcia is impressive, but the surprise in this film was Oscar Issac! He was superb.
This film reminded me a tad bit of "Glory". It had an all star cast and a story line that kept you interested, gave you one or two surprises and was full of sincere moments. Even though I would of liked to see a little more action, the action it delivered was sufficient. The sets and costumes were right on, they did a good job of bringing you into that time period. I would of never of known anything about the Cristeros War and it's heroes if not for this movie. Overall it's an excellent film that everyone should see.
