I had high hopes of this movie, but it's a disappointment
27 May 2001 | by (Balatonfured, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Maybe it's not so bad after all,but I expected so much... I think the non-Hungarian viewers will like it better, because after all it's not a bad movie, music is cool, costumes are too, and they can get known the origin and ancient history of Magyars (Hungarians).Story is also very good, because its pure history :) To make a long story short, it was a total disappointment ,not only for me,but for everyone I was spoken to. Why? Answer is simple I think. Too few battle scenes made it a little bit boring. And when finally a battle occurs what can we see? The attacking enemy horde consists of 3-4 !! horsemen...And choreography is far worse than for example in Braveheart or V. Henry.Yah,the main weakness is the choreography of all the battles I think. But the acting is good. But the biggest problem in our opinion, that in our imaginations our ancestors are not the same as in the movie. They were hotheaded,reckless,bellicose warriors, and whole Europe was seized by fear cause of their Excellent horse-archer skills. And the movie doesn't shows this. We can see only a bunch of miserable fugitive, who ask for the inhabitants: - Please let me live here in the Carpathian basin.

No matter however what have I said, because of the subject, this is the movie that all Hungarian (living here or anywhere in the world) MUST view at least once.
