In 1993 a film came out that shocked the senses with its imagery and sheer brutal action sequences. There were no computer enhanced sequences, not glorified blood splattering, it was raw vivid showing of what war is. The battle scenes were so graphic that it brought many to tears and many to loose their lunch as well. It showed just how horrible war was. What it also showed was how brave soldiers can be when forced with knowing that they might not live the day. The film showed the courage that men face when they think that they are going to die yet go ahead anyway. This one battle was not wanted by either side yet it was going to happen no matter what they wanted. It was the bloodiest and most carnal battle of the Civil War and I do not believe that any other film has captured it as well as this one has.
