This sweeping epic charts the early years of the American Civil War --from the Battle of Bull Run to the Battle of Fredricksburg -- exploring the motivations of the combatants and examining the lives of those who waited at home. As director, producer and screenwriter, Ronald F. Maxwell ("Gettysburg") proves a triple threat as he brings this epic Civil War saga to the screen. Based on Jeff Shaara's bestseller Gods and Generals--a prequel to the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Killer Angels by his father, Michael Shaara--the film examines the lives and personalities of Confederate generals Lee and Jackson versus Union generals Hancock and Chamberlain as the pivotal Battle of Gettysburg approaches.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Filled with two-dimensional characters and pompous self-righteousness, Gods and Generals is a long, tedious sit. Some may also take offense at the pro-Confederate slant.
