For Greater Glory

Posted on the 24 May 2012 by Kaiser31083 @andythemovieguy
For Greater Glory In 1927, the Mexican President began enforcing the anti-clerical laws first established in the country's constitution of 1917. In response to these anti-Catholic purges, a group of revolutionaries formed to fight the government in what came to be known as La Cristiada, and many went on to give their lives in martyrdom for their cause. "For Greater Glory" is an overlong, amateurish production, and noble aspirations which feels like it was penned by a fourth grader who was adapting his own textbook. The acting in an impressive cast is underwhelming, and even the legendary Peter O'Toole struggles to find meaning in a scant role. Following last year's "The Way", it is nice to see an interest in these kinds of spiritual pictures, but until the script, cast, and production values are up to par, they are not doing their subjects justice.
