While filming this movie, Michael Sheen was asked by Ron Howard if he could record a quick moment of dialog for Frost/Nixon (2008). Sheen, covered in fake blood from the days filming, went to his trailer and recorded the dialog, he asked someone to take a picture of him doing it and sent it to Ron Howard, who had it framed and displayed.

At the beginning, when Sonja is riding out to greet the human nobles and receives her "sharpened" sword from Lucian, you can see she doesn't know how to properly wear/carry the sword while on horseback and the sword actually falls out of it's scabbard. There is a quick cell-change as this happens and the sword magically puts itself back in the scabbard and rights itself. See more »
I should have crushed you under my heel the day you were born.

I was hoping it would be good yet I didn't expect it to be 'this' good.
Honestly, this was 'so' well paced. Actually got me anxious, and thats a bit of a rarity. And in a good way.
First off the story was very interesting from start to finish and the script very well crafted. All of the elements... Love, machismo, heroic, underdog, special abilities, honor, suspense, scandal, comradeship, good vs bad just so many elements. However the difference with this film is they were all intertwined so well. Not the usual 'chemistry cocktail' roll of the dice.
The cinematic hat trick... acting, directing and the written story itself all melted like cheese on a hot Philly steak.
I understand the "Category" this film falls near however, over all very well crafted. Some other "Film Makers" should take a few lessons.
I hope there's another.
