Great Movie
19 October 2001 | by SirRobertTheBruceSee all my reviews

I saw the movie in my honors english class, and I thought that it was a great movie. My favorite actor in the movie is the knight from Indian Jones and the Last Crusade. He was one of the chorus members. That guy was the coolest. The next best thing was the other chorus member with the hoarse voice and red hair who pronounces "land" and "lyiand" That was hilarious. All in all, it was a good plot and the music sequences was great. The actor playing Creon was very beleivable, forceful, and showed great antipathy to the surrounding actors. He was the scariest ruler in all the llyyiiiannnddd!
