For Greater Glory
A big Latin cast (Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria, Oscar Isaac) show up for this historical epic chronicling the little-known Cristero War, a popular revolution against Catholic persecution in 1920s Mexico. They say: Critical consensus says director Dean Wright’s debut film fails by stuffing its script with superficial historical incident instead of compelling characters and drama. (Report, Page 12.) Wesay: Interesting subject matter perhaps better communicated in documentary or TV mini-series (which this film sometimes sadly resembles). Running time 143 minutes. Cinemax Kingscliff.
