Give it a chance, it's really good!
6 June 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie knowing it didn't have a big success in its time and also it didn't receive good critics. So I didn't hope a very good movie and the only reason to buy it is because I'm a big fan of Charlton Heston (even I don't like Shakespeare). But, who knows? This movie has been a very big and pleasant surprise for me! Here I have discovered that Heston is not only one of the greatest American actors, also a good (very good) director. This title is great because it combines the loyalty (and love) to Shakespeare with the sense of entertainment for the big screen. And the result is powerful: maybe the actress who plays Cleopatra is not the best for this character (although she is a good actress), but Heston and the rest of the cast are wonderful, the same as the soundtrack and the way to adapt the original material. I think this movie should be respected more.
