This was an ok movie....
2 October 2003 | by obiwanrulz06See all my reviews

This movie was ok and the actors were good...but the wonderful scenery of ONE room was a little boring(though if they're trying to be realistic to Greek Drama, I understand). Most of the costumes didn't quite fit the time period. Creon looked like Star Trek, Ismene like the Renaissance, Creon's son like Star Wars. But oh well, all in all it's an ok movie though the chorus did get annoying at times.
