Goofs

This movie takes great care to copy the women's fashions of the 1920s. The outfits of the men, on the other hand, look very 1950s; even the Spanish military uniforms at the Pamplona sequence are not quite right for the 1920s. See more »

The Looks from the Matador...
9 February 2010 | by samanteksSee all my reviews

This is a ploddingly slow movie that has some nice action sequences thrown in, and some fun humor, but the funniest parts are the close ups of Pedro the matador during the last bull-fight. (Other reviews have addressed the main cast well-enough).

I doubt there has ever been a matador as miscast as this one. He neither looks nor acts like one - although in his defense, he appears to be trying really, really hard to look important. His expressions are priceless, with that shiny face, and the band-aid. Very funny. I wondered who it was, but as the cable channel didn't run any end-credits, I looked him up here in IMDb. Turns out it was Robert Evans.(?!) At least it's clear now why he turned to producing...
