A perfect blend of action and comedy...thoughtful re-telling of the ancient epic, making it more `human` in scope and understanding. Breathtaking scenery added to the authentic `feel`; the musical score was beautiful and the acting was top-notch.
Beautifully filmed. I failed to find all the profanity that I read about previous to seeing the film. Well acted and does make you think.
