Absolutely poor actor performance. Beautiful costumes and scenery. Waste of time.
25 December 2009 | by polocanadaSee all my reviews

This movie would have potential. Could be a nice history legend. If it was actually played well.

Muting the volume is actually better. Mute it so you can at least watch the movie while talking to your buddies on the phone. And you'd think it's interesting actually.

When you listen it's like what is this about? Amateurs testing for preview? Nothing actually going on. Play is out-of-sync with dialogues. There is hardly anything happening.

Waste of time watching this. I give it 5 stars because of costumes but would give it rather 2 stars.
