Come on! I mean, most of Greek epic movie attempts were like taking a Cinecittà movie and passing it through Bollywood's worst directors and stuff. I mean, for a parody, some movies were really great. But nobody dared to make a true epic movie.
This is the very first movie that is Greek and does everything right. There are some weak spots of course, but for a movie with such limited budget, I can be more than forgiving here.
So, let's begin. What about the story of Indominable? Well it is written and directed by people that know what they are doing and what they are talking about. Conan and Tolkien influence is obvious and this is a good thing. It is about a slave that never bows. It has a world with its own rich lore, its own history and its own ethics. Oh yes! AT LAST! Forget about any fourth wall breaks that pt ethic stereotypes of our world into this fantasy world. Ethics there are original. Well made without mistakes. At last! A movie that isn't full of moral or sentimental bullshit. Well made.
Music. Influenced by Poledouris I suppose. Well made soundtrack.
Costumes. Well, for such a budget, the costumes were a huge success. Fantastic.
Directed very well, using special effects in a very good way. You see, special effects can boost or ruin a movie. Here, the effects were a great boost. The photography of the movie is also stunning, showing a hidden beauty of mountains of Greece. I personally watch Kermitsis films and I can save that he did a great job on making a long film like this one.
Finally, I will close this review mentioning the only weak spot. Some actors, were not doing it right. I say that in general, but be aware that at least two of them, did it wrong and it is obvious. But that's not the case. If the movie had more budget available, there would be more professional actors involved.
So do I recommend it? Of course I do! This is the first serious epic movie that I have seen, it has its own world, its own ethics, it's own lore and gods, it characters with background, a comics series to back the movie's world, and Yannis Roumboulias, the creator of that world wielding an iron sword. What else would you want?
