99% action & shots, 1 % code-talkers
I had been looking forward to watching this movie, but boy was I disappointed. I thought the subject was very interesting so I forgot to check the reviews of the movie. It could have been a great movie under other circumstances. Unfortunately I didn't know about action film director and producer John Woo, had I known about him I would have been more wary. What a waste of more than 2 hours! We only hear small fragments of the story about the Navajo code-talkers, most of the movie is wasted on long scenes with shooting and violence that has nothing to do with what should have been the main part of the movie: the story of the code-talkers. I feel snubbed, it could have become a great movie. But then they had to waste the opportunity and end up with more than 2 hours of unbelievable crap: long scenes with guns blazing and hardly no mention of what should have been the main theme: the Navajo code-talkers.
I am so disappointed, I hope that some day there will be a film that really tell the story of the code-talkers.
Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936)
A very good film, but a little aged, of course
Just a brief comment for now, of all the versions that I watched of Little lord Fauntleroy filmatisations, this one in my opinion features the best fitting actors if you compare with the book. And shining gloriously at the top is Sir C. Aubrey Smith (the old Earl - Cedric's grandfather). No other actor that I have seen so far comes closer to portraying the old Earl as gruff and cantankerous as he comes across in the beginning of the book. A slight minus is the low technical quality of the film, but being made in 1936 it is not bad all things considered. I might add that this was the first filmatisation that I watched and thus my opinion might be a little biased but I think that this film is still on the top shelf in terms of overall quality, a true classic. Don't miss it if you have the opportunity to watch it.
