Gettysburg – Director’s Cut
Marking the 150th-anniversary commemoration of the Civil War, Ronald F. Maxwell’s acclaimed film now arrives in a Director’s Cut featuring 17 minutes of compelling additional footage. Filmed at actual battle locations and full of authentic details, this rousing and soulful movie plunges you into the heat of the bloodiest battle fought on American soil. History comes alive with intense and spirited battles as well as the dilemmas, motivations and fears of the leaders. Tom Berenger, Jeff Daniels, Martin Sheen and Stephen Lang star in this magnificent epic based on Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Killer Angels.
Gods & Generals – Extended Director’s Cut Reedited from beginning to end with amplified scenes and an added subplot, this all-new Extended Director’s Cut of Ronald F. Maxwell’s Gettysburg prequel restores his original vision of the fierce allegiances and combat of the early American Civil War. From Jeffrey M. Shaara’s bestseller, this commemorative release coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the North/South conflict incorporates an hour of footage never seen before. The story of actor and future Presidential assassin John Wilkes Booth (Chris Conner) is newly integrated throughout the narrative alongside the legendary heroism of Joshua Chamberlain (Jeff Daniels), “Stonewall” Jackson (Stephen Lang) and Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall). And the battle of Antietam is now included along with the fateful clashes at Manassas, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville.

Special Features

Includes Director’s Cut version of both films, hours of rich and insightful bonus content, photo book of Civil War artifacts, 32-Page booklet extracted from TIME The Civil War: An Illustrated History, Historical Battlefield Map and Commemorative Coin.

This is what the film IS and SHOULD be. It fills in many of the gaps from the theatrical release. And although there are still some slow parts I do not care for, they are now virtually drowned out by new and extended scenes. The battle scenes are better than any other Civil War film made to date. This newer version has more life to it and is certainly more cohesive.
We see more sides to Stonewall Jackson. He's less of the "Santa Claus-like" character some labeled him as in the theatrical release. Perhaps just as important is that his character doesn't dominate this version as it did in the original. He still has a major role, but the film doesn't revolve around him. And although Jeff Daniels' performance as Joshua Chamberlain is not quite as good here as it was in "Gettysburg," his added scenes enhance the film.

"Gettysburg" is the better of the two, but they are both worthy films.

So this short review basically amounts to little more than a recommendation to see the original vision for "Gods and Generals." Watch it and judge for yourself.

I have waited for this box set for a long time, but especially for the directors cut of God's and Generals. I thought the extra footage made it an entirely new movie! Now all I want is for Ted Turner to finally decide to make the final movie, The Last Full Measure... ignore how much money it makes at the box office (I think for this type of movie it creats a false negative), because the real money for these movies comes from the DVD and now Blue-Ray sales from people that are dedicated to this movie genre.

When I saw that Warner Bros. was finally going to release Gods & Generals and Gettysburg in the director's cut format I was elated beyond belief. These two movies are at the top of my list of Civil War movies. Yes, I know about some of the inaccuracies - it's unfortunate that most (if not all) historical movies have their faults - but I still really love these two movies up and beyond all others of their genre.
Being as anxious as I was, I did not want to wait until July for the box set and ended up purchasing both as individuals upon their release in May. Now, before I get into the actual reviews of the movies themselves I would like to review the packaging. The individual release packaging was one of the best I have seen for any movie. Not only does one receive the extended director's cut of both movies but a full booklet with each set! These booklets include notes from Ron Maxwell himself, information about the battles, the actors and the historical figures they portray, and loads of photos. There is also plenty of Civil War facts and figures including a time line.
I was like a kid at Christmas...better yet, these sets were released two days after my birthday - what a gift!
Let's jump up a couple of months and I'm at the local department store and I see the Box Set of both movies. By purchasing this set I would also receive (besides the movies themselves) a commemorative bronze Lincoln coin, a 40 page photo booklet of Civil War artifacts and correspondence, a 32 page booklet from Time magazine's new book on the Civil War, and even a two-sided historical map. Okay, being the Gettysburg and Gods & Generals fan that I am.

I'm taking a leap in faith or as some would say, going out on a limb to give this review. Before my life became absorbed with War, History, Cooking and Family I enjoyed casual reading on the Civil War and read Killer Angels in fits and spurts before Gettysburg hit the big screen. I worked my way through college earning a BA in History and an MA in Social Sciences, and ended up studying the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam.

I then moved to Shepherdstown WV, the very doorstep to Antietam National Battlefield. In doing so I finished my masters degree by completing my thesis on "Afternoon at Lower Bridge", focusing on the tactics and strategy that took place at the Lower Bridge, now known as Burnside Bridge. I came to realize that there were a lot of different perspectives, viewpoints and theories on what took place, and the only thing we know today is that the battle took place on that hallowed ground. Everything else is up for speculation, including the thoughts of the commanders, soldiers and even more so the historians that later transposed the early words of those that fought the battles.

With that being said these movies are interpretations of what took place on the battlefields 150 years ago. True, we know who fought on what side, but other than that, we really don't know exactly what took place. Suffice to say Battlefield Historians, Park Rangers, Noted Historians and Tour Guides that have spent years studying the war and they are the ones we need to go to for exact information.

With that being said I really enjoyed the 1 hr addition to Gods and Generals, and loved seeing the theatrical release of Gettysburg last week at the Gettysburg Visitor Center hosted by Ron Maxwell.
