The Cristero War serves as the backdrop of this historical drama following a group of devoted Mexican patriots who risk their lives to defeat an oppressive regime, and defend the freedom of future generations. Andy Garcia, Oscar Isaac, Eva Longoria, and Peter O'Toole star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This is a great movie. The fact that it is all true, makes it also enlightening.
When I first read the synopsis, it didn't sound like anything I would enjoy, but as it went along, I became hooked, and when it ended, my mate and I both agreed it was one of the best movies we have seen in a very long time. Why hadn't we heard of it before, when it originally came out? Andy Garcia gives his finest performance. If you don't find yourself either crying or choked up at the end, be sure to check your pulse.
A fantastic, gripping movie about a true piece of history of which I was not aware.
Tough to watch but an absolute must for everyone. Outstanding performances. One of the best movies of 2012. Very surprised there hasn't been more publicity about it. Probably because of political concerns re Mexico.

If you claim to be Roman Catholic then see this film. In the USA we are never told what happened to our Catholic brothers and sisters in 1926 in Mexico. This film is historical. Yes, people get killed. But the violence is not gratutious. You will appreciate your faith and your circumstances alot more after seeing this film. Even the American Knights Of Columbus tried to desperately help the Cristeros in Mexico (shown in a short film that comes with the DVD, very briefly mentioned in the movie). Andy Garcia gives a 5 star performance. Peter O'Toole does not disappoints. Mr. O'Toole gives a fine acting performance - one of his very last after retiring from the stage. Very moving. Yes, some people will cry. Others will not. Excellent film. Glad it was made.

The Cristero War started when a new regime began to persecute priests and the Catholic Church in Mexico in the 1920's. It began in small pockets of resistance but soon engulfed the whole of the country. Andy Garcia plays their general who fights because he believes in religious freedom. Many who fought , including this general, later become official martyrs of the church. There is "necessary" brutality . The beliefs of the church are forefront. The thing that is most important here is that most folks in the USA have never heard of this war and do not know that it even happened. This movie is well made. Ladies grab the box of facial tissues for all the tears you will shed. This movie is not for the faint-heart...but believe me you will always remember it.
