Reflective Description, 14 July 2005
Author: lil_drama_queen from United States

The Scarlet Pimpernel is one of my favorite movies. It may not be a big-budget blockbuster, but it certainly is intriguing. Hats off to Baroness Orczy for such an amazingly twisted tale, and again to the cast who pulled it off so well. It has that delicately beautiful balance of romance, hidden behind a latticework of deception, intrigue, bravado and hope. A fan of historical fiction, action and romance, I found it to be quite a fascinating little nugget of gold amongst a vast array of shoddy Made-for-TV movies. Anthony Andrews is very good in the role of Sir Percy Blakeney, who- in nearly the very beginning of the movie- utters some of the most romantic lines I've ever heard, as well as some of the most humorous (my personal favorite is: "T'would seem your friend is in distress... to the rescue."). Sitting alone in the house some night in the future, this would be a good flick to put in. Guys, don't expect a lot of explosions (yes, it made me weep to not see them also), but it is still a good one. Besides, there are still some good old fashioned action/chase sequences...
