Why are you so eager for people to love you?
Why are you so eager for them to hate you?
Hate me? They don't. They can't. I'm the prince. I'm like the south wind from Africa, I've always been here. You haven't.
We don't get that ransom soon you won't be here much longer.
Then my son will be the prince, and the south wind goes on.
I hate you people! What you've done to us.

Despite the score of 4.8/10, I still picked up The Sicilian in the DVD bargain bin since I liked Christopher Lambert in Highlander and Fortress. I'm not gonna say Christopher Lambert is the greatest actor in the world but I guess he did OK in this. They've got some good supporting actors such as Joss Ackland and John Turturro that bring life to the movie. I like this movie a lot. It is MUCH better than the trash Lambert has starred in the past five years [i.e. Fortress 2, Absolon]. This movie deserves more than a 4.8...more like a 6.5+. Michael Cimino has got to be one of the greatest directors ever but I guess after Heavens Gate, people lost faith in him. Oh well. If you're looking for a spin-off Godfather type movie with the 'Highlander', it's worth a rent.
