Beautiful film
22 April 2006 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

This film is a beautiful legend about the true love, hate, betrayal and friendship. I think not the effects are the most important thing in this movie but the message it gives to us. I will remember this film because there are very few films with such strong message. Everyone who believes in good and in morals should see this movie! The actors play is not at a high level with the exception of Max Von Sudof and Kristanna Loken but this is not so important because the background of the film - the history on the basis of which it was made is fascinating. I really enjoyed the play of Kristanna Loken. She proved that she is one of the most prospering actresses at the moment. Especially in such epic kind of movies. Enjoy the film.
