Grand epic
27 March 2011 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this in a slightly choppy print (it ran about 89 minutes) but it I don't think anything was really missing.

The plot has the Grand Inquisitor and some others scheming to take control of the city state. They poison the ruler and take control. When a well loved admiral returns from battle, having promised his crew of galley freedom, and for whom evidence of the coup has been left, the Inquisitor and his men conspire to discredit the admiral and his men. The admiral is killed and his next in command survives an assassination attempt. Falling in with some of the freed galley slaves he plots to take down the usurpers while trying to balance a romance with the admirals daughter and a bar girl.

Epic costume drama is a great deal of fine. Far from being a truly great film, it's too much of a romantic potboiler at times, the film moves along at a good clip and keeps you interested simply because it never lets up. I put the film on to watch while doing somethings around the house and instead ended up watching the film straight on to the end.

Definitely worth a look especially if you're in a non-think sort of mood.
