Goofs

When Chrysagon first sees Bronwyn naked in the water, we see a close-up of Rosemary Forsythe in the water. When it cuts to a wide shot of Charlton Heston wading in and helping her to stand, Bronwyn is clearly a different girl, a stand in who has darker hair. See more »

Quotes

Chrysagon: From under his right hand, I took that sword. I've lived twenty years with that cold wife.

The realism of the movie.
29 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

Everything in this movie is so real. The attitudes of each other the costumes the setting and on and on. Notice the actors never changed clothes. The tower was spartan just as it would have been. There has not been a movie that packs this level of realism.
