Highpoint? More lowpoint
17 June 2018 | by greenheartSee all my reviews

It just makes you wonder what the screenwriter was thinking. Okay lads, we'll have sword fighting, car chases and crashes, a pony and trap chase, people flying into water in their vehicles and slowly sinking, horses and oooh, I know, let's get some laughs with people sneezing and getting trapped in lift doors. Just as you can't quite believe what you're watching, we have s peeded up sequence with people talking speeded up like Benny Hill used to do. Why Christopher Plummer, just why? Richard Harris had the oddest accent I've heard in a while. Thank goodness for Beverley D'Angelo who at least looked amazing. There's a line during the showdown on the CN Tower that says "Leave them, they're idiots" Advice I probably should have taken!
