  • 4 stars Look, some people are deep and others just want action to entertain themselves. THIS HISTORICAL BASED MOVIE IS THOUGHT PROVOKING on many levels. I would have loved it if I could have heard it. So many times, I was screaming at the post production team saying WHAT IN THE HELL, it was so loud you could NOT HEAR the dialouge at all, so you had to guess, which takes a person out of the story and into anger. Still I never considered not finishing the movie, but then again I am a writer and philosopher and thinker, plus I love history. I wanted to adore this film and really would have had I not been so damn mad at the loud and unnecessary attention to the score. When I really blew up about it was during the last scene when you could not hear what she thought, what he said, and the score was shaking my house it was so loud. I have NEVER EVER experienced this kind of anger at a movie due to the score overtaking all the dialouge. NEVER. What in the hell were they thinking. Other than that, I rated the story, the unique way it was told, as a 4. I SO wanted to love the story even though I thought they could have really pulled it off better with a more beautiful actress. Colin Powell doesn't need to talk, his eyes speak volumes, and he was wonderful as were all the actors. I really DID like it until I was so mad!
  • I don`t ever walk out of movies. Yet I walked out of this one. Slow, boring, and the few times a character actually talked, I couldn`t understand what was being said. Don`t waste your time or money on this garbage.
  • Loved it......................
  • ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz!What happened?I dozed several times during this film.Very slow paced and dull historical film that is beautifully filmed but the story is very boring..zzzzzzzzzzzz!
  • I have to say that iam shocked at the mixed reviews of this film, to be honest with u I love action movies filled with hot guys,fast cars and sleek guns. but this movie really captured me, not only was the cinematography brilliant, but the actors were incredivle...i guess u can say that u had to be an observant audience emeber in order to catch the fine details of this movie. It wasnt a waste of my time, i thouroughly enjoyed it!!! BEAUTIFUL, CAPTURING, PHILISOPHICAL, EXQUISITE FILM!
  • I will never watch anoter Colin Farel movie.Thi s movie is brutel!!!
  • Beautifully filmed -- but could`ve done without the chopping editing (a shot of someone would immediately switch to another shot of that person in a slightly different pose, but nothing had happened in the meantime.
  • Needed subtitles for the British actors. Couldn`t understand a word they said due to mumbling of lines. And sometimes their mumbling was drowned out by the loud "background" music. Made it hard to follow what was going on.
  • Dull as dishwater, I left after the first hour.
  • A really good movie, only complaint would be the sound other than that I really enjoyed it.
