Gettysburg over all is very good. Though the movie starts off weak, with some pretty poor acting, it all comes together very well in the middle, and end. I think the best part of the movie is how both sides are portrayed, there are no “good guys” or “bad guys”. You tend to relate to both sides, not routing for any one side. The best actors in the movie are: Martin Sheen as General Lee, who really seems to take th role well as a God fearing General. They also did a good job in showing how the Confederate Soldiers had such deep admiration, and respect for General Lee. Sam Elliot also does a great job as General Buford. Every thing else is good, the battles are intense, the camera work is good, but the music is terrible, it doesn’t really tie in with the movie very well. Overall, it’s a great movie for a Civil War enthusiast, or History Buff.(Also recommended to show in schools.)

A little long but its still interesting. And you get to know the characters and different points of views and of course the action scenes are well done.

I think the video is fairly accurate.

I have had this movie for awhile and rewatched it after reading The Killer Angels. I enjoyed the movie the first time, but after reading the book, I had a deeper understanding of the characters and what happened at Getteysburg. This is a great movie. I'm buying another copy for my grandson along with Gods and Generals. I have already purchased the books Gods and Generals, The Killer Angels, and The Last Full Measure for him.

A fine history lesson, but it is based on a pro-Lonstreet revisionist novel and an insipid Lee character, looking dazed and confused, is further weakened by Martin Sheen's abyssmal performance. Keep in mind it's based on a work of fiction, however admirably it's done, and great chunks of dialogue were lifted from the novel. And there are some who think the south might've won the battle but for Longstreet! Nevertheless, Berenger is great, Jeff Daniels is brilliant.

Partly by accident and partly by design the massed armies of the North and South are tested to the maximum in this riveting recreation of this,one of the two or three major battels in the history of America. The film captures the strategy and day-day dependence on horses and primitive communications to determine the nation's future. Jeff Dainels is monumental in his depicion of Col. Chamberlain, Medal of Honor recipient forever linked to Little Round Top. This film should be a must in American history classes. It portrays a way of life and a way of committment as few other methods of expression have ever done.

Gettysburg is an epic story. It is one of the best Civil War movies available. The camera work and music are phenominal.

Gettysburg has got to be the best Civil War Movie I have ever seen! And the DVD is real helpful for teachers with additional footage, and even maps of the battle site! I suggest you buy it.

Gettysburg is the best move that you will see if you like the Civil War. It shows how the men felt.

Gettysburg is a fabulous movie. It's so touching and sad that brother fought against brother but did so to save this great country. I've watched it many times. I have it on my IPOD too....The musical score is in my car CD player. It's just beautiful. I highly recomment this movie

Anybody that is a Civil War buff have always been fascinated by the inner and tragic relationships between Yankee and Southern troops being friends. Armistead and Hancock was a relationship overlooked by many Civil War historians. The climax scene with Hancock shot and Armistead leading Pickett's charge was nothing I have ever seen in any type of war movie.

A terrific account of what some feel was the most important battle in American history. Despite an inappropriate and sappy sound track and a really terrible performance by Martin Sheen (as R E Lee) this is a GREAT MOVIE! There will be some historical ommissions and fictional interpertations with which real CW buffs will have trouble. But what the heck, it's a 3 hour Movie, not a 3 day re-enactment. What it clearly and dramaticly gives the viewer is absolute respect for the courage and faith of the mid 19th century American.
