    Still a guilty pleasure. Still love it. No regrets.

    I get it. They wanted this film to echo back and reminisce to times of movie yore by imitating the presentation style of period epics.

    All it really did was age the movie before its time and underscore how lazy the whole damn thing was. While trying to live up to one of the world's greatest literary masterpieces in which this film is based from.

    The only plus here is that Sean Bean didn't die at the end.

    ★★★

    This is really a poor man's, cheap knock-off of 'The Ten Commandments' except without the poor voice acting. And given that I grew up watching 'The Ten Commandments' I can't even give it kid-friendly kudos.

    The one thing that this movie did wonderfully though was the music. From the opening number to the beautifully big pop piece, it really was made to match the majesty of the story.

    So despite a weak presentation, I'd still call it an enjoyable experience.

    ★★½

    'It was a good death.'

    Death was a strong theme in this movie. Death as a beginning, death as a catalyst, death as all things end.

    But while it doesn't trivialize death, it does tend to overplay it towards the end. As if it ran out of ideas two-thirds of the way into it.

    At least the sweeping music and even more beautiful scenery made up for a ploddingly tiresome and melodramatic tale.
