DESCRIPTION

All Movie Guide - Jason Buchanan A powerful meditation on a defining chapter in Mexican history, director Dean Wright's feature debut For Greater Glory explores the complex relationship between religion and politics in a way that's respectful to both, while also celebrating the spirit of freedom by paying tribute to those who sacrificed their lives in the name of it. Strong performances and vivid period detail draw us into the story, while screenwriter Michael Love sets up the rapidly escalating feud between Mexican president Plutarco Elias Calles and the oppressed Catholics of the country, and introduces us to an unlikely hero whose detachment from organized religion doesn't color his personal politics. Infused with the style and energy of a classic adventure film, For Greater Glory accomplishes the lofty goal of simultaneously entertaining and educating us early on, although the heaviness of the story and the events depicted cause the tone to shift toward somber and reverent as the conclusion draws near
