John Drew Barrymore,
The plot of Marcus, renamed Coriolanus after a victory, switching sides to expose the evils of Rome's leaders, is a snooze fest. The first third is dull court intrigue. The middle third is great action, that will get your hopes up. Unfortunately the final third is worse than the first and will bore you to tears. As good as the middle is the ends kill it. This is a movie to make you pull your hair out because whats good is so good that you end up with no patience for the bad parts.
Making everything worse is the fact that the dubbing into English is terrible making the already iffy performances seem worse.
A void unless you need sleep, or can manage only to see the middle third.
