Simply the best, 12 January 2003
Author: secampbell (scottsoup1@yahoo.com) from Alpharetta, GA

In my opinion, this is the best motion picture of all time! While it's actually a mini-series, I believe it matches up favorably (and surpasses) the best movies...Shawshank Redemption, Seven Samurai, Star Wars, Citizen Kane, and so on. The story, sets, acting, character development, music, ....all amazing.

The production is as if you were plopped onto a horse in the middle of a cattle drive in the old American West. Every detail was as if it was 1880...including the dialogue, character depth, harshness of life...and the utter chaos and randomness of how events played out.

While there are a couple special effects that might have been a little better, this work of art is as theatrically ideal as the Mona Lisa! When you have time, rent it.
