It’s a remarkable heroic movie that on balance, would be worthy of watching on a cold winter night.
Taking a closer look at this forgotten film, examining that familiar look of a “greenish tinge with hints of blue”. What I particularly appreciate is how under the guises of Ridley Scott these actors are not only supremely focused and alert, but look so convincing in battle costume.
Without sentimentality this movie has a cold heart but you’ll warm to it’s eye for delectable beauty. The characters are rich and intriguing, the plot has plenty of twists and turns.
