Wordplay and swordplay
17 June 2002 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

This costume adventure never quite gets off the ground, perhaps because its plot is so predictable. However, Stewart Granger gives the proceedings a touch of class and he seems to relish delivering lines of dialog which have some bite and wit to them. Particularly good are his scenes with leading lady, Sylva Koscina. The "action" scenes include sword fights, a racking, a whipping, and a horse race, but they're never more than routine. Sets and costumes aren't quite of "A" level but are better than one usually finds in "B" productions. One scene almost recreates a Vermeer painting.
