It's kind of an American Robin Hood, with racism (of course). It's a good movie, but I found it had a couple problems with the pacing of the story.
SPOILER The flashforwards to the 20th century didn't make it for me (their story could be compelling, but they are too short and too apart). SPOILER
Pretty grim, as expected. Overall though, more engaging than I thought a 2.5 hour civil war movie would be.
Earnest historical war drama start outs very grim and gripping but loses momentum halfway and shifts in tone. Very well made and acted but considering the material should be bettter with a lot of unresolved story points
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
