Pretty awful. This film contains the trinity of bad movies - bad story, bad acting and bad camerawork. After 10 minutes I was ready for the film to end. Joe Bottoms' brothers can act but in this film it is apparent that Joe can only ski well. Vangelis' score was good but it seemed like it belonged in another film and not this one. As for the ending - who knows? The only good thing about this movie was the cannon sequence but even that brings up a lot of questions, the main one being - are cannons in old castles usually left loaded? Just one problem out of many.
