It still seems to be missing something, it took several viewings to figure it out, but what it is missing is acting. I have never seen so many bad performances by good actors. Tom Beringer and Martin Sheen were not believable in their roles. Jeff Daniels , I could just see Dumb & Dumber. Jeb Stuart wooden. John Bell Hood, wooden.
There were just too many subpar performances, it took away from the few fine ones, ( Lang, Gordon, Howell Conway.) The real stars were in my opinion the reenactors from all over who considered this a labor of reverance. It is worth watching for their sakes.
I only hope we will see better from the prequel.
