Beyond Glory: An Inspiring Story Adapted to the Big Screen

Great books that chronicle the lives of war veterans often have a special place in the hearts of Americans. Larry Smith’s book Beyond Glory is one of those incredible stories that's not only an honest and true depiction of war, but is a book that's earning critical attention based on other creative renditions in the form of a playwright, and most recently, a film.
Stephen Lang's Beyond Glory

Before being adapted into a film, the play Beyond Glory was brought to stage by Stephen Lang in 2004. The one-man-show was so successful that Lang decided to bring it to the big screen. Together with independent film product company, 8180 Films, Stephen Lang later brought Beyond Glory to the big screen. With the recruitment war veteran-supporter and famous actor Gary Sinise as narrator, Beyond Glory the film has struck a chord with many viewers across the country.

Taking a Close Look at Beyond Glory the Film

The film is directed by none other than Larry Brand (of 8180 Films) and was written by Lang who plays the major role in the film. The film's producers include Rebecca Reynolds, James Carpenter, Noah Lang, and Ross Satterwhite. The film presents the audience with a creative blending of theater and cinema. It is a valuable testimonial of what the life of soldiers was like during World War II, Korea and Vietnam wars.

Beyond Glory the FilmStephen Lang's Beyond Glory follows the lives of eight Medal of Honor recipients. By bringing it to the big screen, Lang hopes to immortalize the lives of such war veterans and pass their stories over to future generations in the country.

Lang is the talent behind Beyond Glory. The actor is best known for his role in Avatar and a handful of other films. In this film, Lang uses his talent to portray the lives of eight soldiers from different ethnicities. It is not so easy to be able to portray the lives of eight different characters in their uniqueness. Lang manages to do so and brings these soldiers to life in front of the audience.

The film is not much about war as it is the story of human dignity and survival. Although very different, the eight soldiers are brought together by their commitment and dedication to a common cause. It is a tale of survival. Even if these soldiers were severely wounded in the wars, they came out of the war mentally intact.

Each war hero profiled in the film was given the Medal of Honor award. As he was exploring their lives, Larry Smith was amazed to discover that they were from different ethnic origins. The writer’s job as a journalist gives the book ( and its theatrical and cinematic adaptations) a realistic aspect.

The independent film Beyond Glory gives an unbiased account of the lives of these soldiers, with special emphasis on what binds them together, namely a honest dedication to preserve the country. The ability to transgress cultural and ethnic boundaries under a common purpose is what makes the film particularly appealing.

The film joins two great actors Stephen Lang and Gary Sinise. Lang admits that Sinise’s voice is a perfect match for the film and his background in military service makes him especially suitable for the theme of the film. On his part, Sinise expressed his delight in narrating the lives of America’s greatest heroes. The film is already screening in many parts of the world and is receiving a lot of critical attention.

  1. I am a content writer. You don't know me, but I was the one who wrote your article 'Beyond Glory: An Inspiring Story Adapted to the Big Screen' (and may be many other). I wrote it on June 25th exactly. I was hired by someone whose name is Stephen Garreth to work as a ghost writer. He works with another person whose name is Chris Burtis. They promised me $ 0.024 per word. We communicated through skype. We agreed on monthly payment. They made me write 3000 words every day. They bid on the project online and assign it to me or to any other person they have deceived. When the first month was over and payment was due, they just disappeared and they never paid me. I know you have nothing to do with this. I am not asking you to pay. I am just trying to prevent other poor writers like me to fall victim to them. I tried to sue them to upwork.com (the place where I met them) but they seem to have disappeared from them.
    I was devastated because I badly needed the money (imagine writing 3000 words every day and getting nothing at the end).
    Dont worry, I am not claiming authorship over the article, I was just sad to see my unpaid article online.
    I know it is not your business, but I would really appreciate if you just let these two men know that I got in touch with you. May be They will contatc me and pay me when they know I am tracing my articles.
    Best regards.
