This movie was astoundingly bad. The acting in this movie was below zero at best, the action was terrible, and the overall storytelling was atrocious. This film almost made me stop watching movies for awhile. And it was 5 hours?! This movie held me for all of 30 seconds before wasting seconds of my life with drudgery and there was no turning back from there.
It cannot be stressed enough the lack of validity in which this movie operates. I mean, the wife of a king telling another king what to do? That does not happen. And with the lack of any discerning acting talent, this movie proves that you have to leave the epics to those who can make them watchable.
