The dramatic scenes have a sort of "History Channel" recreation feel, rather than real dramatic stakes, but the battle scenes are historically-recreated and beautifully shot. For history buffs, the battle strategy of Gettysburg is also laid out in detail, so it's more of an educational film than a truly engaging drama.

The Ultimate History Buff Film

If you are interested in the Civil War, this movie is amazing. As a history major, I can validate that Gettysburg is a mostly historically accurate movie, which is very rare. It is based around the novel The Killer Angels. This movie is very much an intellectual's film; you won't find your average Hollywood action flick. The main deterrent is that this is truely a four & a half hour movie. That makes this movie almost unwatchable without a break; it also makes Gettysburg one of the most powerful films ever! The acting is suburb and it manages to accurately depict both the Union's and Confederacy's motivations and intentions. You get an interesting insight for each of the major officers and heroes present at the Battle of Gettysburg. I usually don't love drama movies, but this truly is an ...
