ACTORS - horrible 1990s choice of actors and characters (three utterly annoying American tourists) and Christopher Lambert. Yes, that Christopher Lambert, who once was a big star (don't ask me how he ended up in this piece of junk);
PLOT - makes little or no sense (not to mention the terrible distortion of historical reality and truth);
SETTING - probably the only positive think in the whole film;
ENDING - clear and predictable after some 30 minutes into the film; etc.
I could go on and on, but there's no point to. It's simply one horrible horrible film which should never have been made. And Mr. Lambert should fire his agent ASAP and start making decent films again.
