Sergeant York Review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

We decided to review one of our favorite old movie Sergeant York.

Cad Bane's chick at Pandas, Lightsabers and Cameras, oh my!! requested that we review old movies so here is the review for Casablanca.

Directed by: Howard Hawks
Genre: War,
Release Date: July 2, 1941
Running Time: 134 minutes
MMPA rating: ?

The Good: Christianity plays an important role in story, Gary Cooper and Walter Brennan gave top notch performances, Great plot based on a true story,

The Bad:

Plot: Alvin York (Gary Cooper), a poor Tennessee hillbilly, is an exceptional marksman, but a ne'er-do-well prone to drinking and fighting, which doesn't make things any easier for his patient mother (Margaret Wycherly). He undergoes a religious awakening when he is struck by lightning during a late-night rainstorm and turns his life around, assisted by Pastor Rosier Pile (Walter Brennan). York vows never to get angry at anyone ever again, determining to be a good husband and provider for his sweetheart Gracie Williams (Joan Leslie).
York tries to avoid induction into the Army for World War I as a conscientious objector due to his religious beliefs but gets drafted into the Army nonetheless. His status as a true conscientious objector is rejected since his church has no official standing, and he reluctantly reports to Camp Gordon for Army basic training. During basic training, his superiors find out that he is a phenomenal marksman and promote him to corporal. Watch the movie to see what happens next.

Plot: 9.1/10- Sergeant York's plot was based on a true story about a real America hero and Christianity plays an important role in story.

Action: 6.7/10- Sergeant York is not an action movie until the end of the movie but it was good for the time.

Acting: 8.9/10- The acting was top notch.

Special effects: N/A

Soundtrack: N/A- I don't remember the soundtrack and I couldn't find the soundtrack on YouTube.

Comedy: 6.2/10- Sergeant York is not a comedy but there were some humor.

Overall: 8.8/10- Overall Sergeant York is one of if not the best movie from the decade.

Closing comments: If you like old movies or just like good movies you should check out Sergeant York.
