A fine old adventure
27 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

I have to say I really liked this movie. It seemed almost like something simpler... from another time - a story, romance, adventure, characters... and most of the money spent on acting talent rather than special effects (although considering this was presumably a low-budget effort, and I believe went straight to video, the effects are... well effective - they work and do their job in the story, even if they're a ways from breath-taking by modern standards). It held my attention from the opening until the final credits... I was never even tempted to reach for the fast-forward button... and I enjoyed it! It made me feel almost like a kid again, reading a comic - rather a racy, violent comic though... it's definitely not a children's film. Recommended to anyone who can still enjoy an adventure told with humour and sincerity, without irony, and without any pretensions to being an "event movie".
