No Heart
11 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I didn't feel anything when I watched this film except boredom. There was no real story to it, and the only redeeming feature that it had was that it paid attention to detail in relation to the costumes and setting. I think DeMille makes a better than he does a director.
