Italian braveheart but even worse
29 May 2011 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Do yourself a favor and do not watch this film.

I saw the box-art and thought it looked like a fun, violence filled, medieval romp about a subject I knew nothing about.

Even though I know next to nothing about this history, I can tell this film is stupidly inaccurate and on top of this it's awful too. I wanted the hero to die from the moment I saw him, he can't act and is just irritating from first to last.

Even the violence was completely unsatisfying.. There is no redeeming feature - do not waste your time on this. Go read the wiki page on barbarossa instead.. far more entertaining, you will learn stuff and have at least an hour more of your life.

I hope Mr Hauer got paid a total fortune for his bit part in this film, he was the only decent thing in it.
