Andy Garcia says he is "very proud" of the new historical war drama movie, "For Greater Glory," which was produced in Mexico.

The movie, which was released on Friday, June 1, chronicles the Cristeros War in Mexico, which pitted an atheistic Mexican government against religious Catholic citizens. Garcia plays General Enrique Gorostieta, a rebel leader, while Longoria plays his wife, Tulita.

"It's a completely independent film - financed and produced completely out of Mexico - so it's something to be proud of for that community," Garcia told OnTheRedCarpet.com correspondent Tony Cabrera. "It's a great production. I think the production values by all of the Mexican designers in the movie are on par with any movie at the international level - and I am very proud of that."

Garcia, 56, went on to explain what he would fight for in his own life if he was put in such a situation.

"My family is really what comes to mind," Garcia said. "Of course when ... it's not like one is saying that one is a 'freedom fighter,' but I think any father or any individual, when cornered, as a citizen and your family is threatened or your freedom is taken away from you, you never know what drastic reaction you might have that might not necessarily be your nature."

The actor is also set to appear alongside Longoria again in the 2012 film "The Truth" with Forest Whitaker.
