And when I say true epic, I mean it. Here you won't find enormous battles as in "gettysburg" or "The patriot", nor great F/X or other thing associated with modern war pictures... but instead of it you're gonna find an story about people who fought a war for people who despised them, who fought knowing that the enemy would have no respect for them as prisoners, who were treated a lower class soldiers, and that even after all demonstrate a admirable valour and sense of duty. It's the kind of movies that moves you in many way that after seeing it you don't know exactly how to describe it to your friends to make them understand all his glory (no pun intended :p).
Apart from the overall feeling of this movie, the acting is superb. Matthew Broderick does an impressive work walking away from his Ferris Bueller character. Denzel Washintong is flawless as a rebel and tortured young man and Morgan Freeman gives a full lesson about acting, as usual. Cary Elwes too gives a very good performance as Broderick's pal officer, and the rest of the cast is great, specially the actors who play the soldiers of the black regiment. The battle scenes, although not perfect, are very good and very epic. And special reference to the impressive and moving music by James Horner in perhaps one of his best works.
Not much to say, just view it. One of the greatest (and maybe less remembered) movies of the 80's
I can't believe that such professionals like Lawrence Kasdan, William Goldman or Morgan Freeman are behind this thing
What is this film about?? psychic powers? alien invaders? mortal viruses?... too many things and none of them well utilized. I suppose Stephen King book is better than this.
I can't believe that such professionals like Lawrence Kasdan, William Goldman or Morgan Freeman are behind this thing. It seems to be directed by any of the thousand rookie directors this projects use to be assigned instead the well talented Kasdan. I cant deny the f/x are good, and so any detached joke, but that don't make the rest worth. A disappointing 2/5 of 10
