  1. Mildly entertaining at best Other reviews compare this movie to the masterful novel by James Lee Burke, which is unfair and absurd. I read the novel twice; it was that good. I was transported for many hours into the murky magical world of Burke’s southern Louisiana, deep into its history, experiencing the feelings and sights and sounds through the finely drawn, complex characters fleshed out upon the pages, learning more about history than I ever had in a classroom. No movie could possibly have done justice to this…

  2. Excellent If you’re a Tommy Lee Jones fan this is purely Tommy Lee. And if you’e a fan of the books by James Lee Burke (and you should be) you’ll love this. Burke’s character Dave Robicheaux is the protagonist of a series of wonderful fiction by Burke. New Orleans and Iberia Parrish and Louisiana come alive in his books. He’s one of the best authors around of southern fiction. Please watch this to the end, its really great. BTW Leon Helm as John Bell Hood pronounces “cavalry” as “calvary”as in the hill…
