This movie started off slow and then went even slower and then in reverse and then it really went south. The Don and Sancho are in a field where the Don wants his armor cleaned. After a few minutes of silence, Don asks Sancho "where is my armor?", a few more minutes pass and he again asks "Sancho, where is my armor?" A minute or two later, Sancho, who needs to go on the Biggest Loser despite surviving on nuts and herbs, grovels around and finds some armor laying around and turns it over a few times and then lays it down. A couple of more minutes go by and the Don asks for a third time for his armor and Sancho throws it over to him. I guess it was just spotless as he didn't even put it on and we advance to the next scene in which they are going to find a camp that Sancho is going to choose. They travel for hours and end up about a hundred yards on the other side of the field with the same hill in the background where they were in the first riveting scene. After another long debate, it gets dark and they speak about once very few minutes. I sat and watched a black screen for ten minutes without a spoken word. I finally just broke out laughing which didn't offend anyone as the "crowd" in the theater had thinned from five to two. To top all of it off, this entire movie is filmed in some dead language that not even the people who live in the area this supposedly took place, don't even speak anymore. This film would be great on Mystery Science Theater 3000 or to punish your kids with when they are bad. It might even come in handy for use in prisons. I have been trying to get a copy to show at parties but it is only available on British DVD. If you have the chance, go see it and take all your friends.
