A solid 7 out of 10
30 August 2002 | by hollywoodstarpixSee all my reviews

I got to see this independent feature at the Houston film festival and found it to be very enjoyable. Destined to be a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, the film tells the story of a young boy who sneaks away to be a drummer for his small Kentucky town's Union Army regiment. The boy ends up behind enemy lines and gains a new perspective on the war and "the enemy," as he struggles to survive and return to the North. It's an interesting tale that could have benefited from a larger budget. As some of the supporting talent does not hold up as well as the leads. The battle scenes are huge and excellently recreated, without being too gory. The audience the night I saw the picture seemed very pleased. I expect to see this film on Cable or Network TV as it doesn't quite have the scope to play in theaters. Overall, a solid 7 out of 10.
