Very well done, 28 March 2013
Author: dmgruber1 from USA

My wife and I really enjoyed this movie. The acting was good. The Plot interesting. The visuals stunning. I've read the other comments and while I agree that while the music wasn't on par with a Vangelis or Hans Zimmer score, it certainly did not detract from our overall enjoyment.

It's an Italian movie on a budget of 8 million euro. They spent it on costumes and extras. I hate a movie that doesn't have enough extras for the big battle scene (ie: Conan). The battle at the beginning was pretty good.

As an Italian movie, it has some of the "quirkiness" of those Eastwood "Spaghetti" Westerns. I noticed in two places the editing could have been smoother, but again, a good overall film.

I gave it a 9. Not because it is Oscar worthy but because it was enjoyable, i'd watch it again, and I'd invite friends. I won't do that for more than a couple of "oscar" winners.

Over all a good family movie that asks the question: What if?
