Rewriting history
6 October 2009 | by PrianCohenSee all my reviews

Apart from the technical blunders, this film is really rewriting history. Not only did the Medici rule over Venice, as some people have pointed out. Some other groundbreaking discoveries made by Dr. Stephen "Indiana" Baldwin:

  • King Louis XIV. (1638-1715) was a 13th century crusader.


  • 17-year-old Marco Polo had a fleet of his own and was, also, a crusader.


  • In 1271, crusaders conquered Crete (fiercely ignoring the fact that the island had been under Venetian rule for almost 70 years).


  • Solomo's hoard was brought to Venice on a galleon called "Stout", three centuries before this kind of ship was developed. - And finally


  • a hidden truth only for those lucky enough to listen to the German audio track: the "Stout" wasn't a galleon after all, but a "balloon" (listen to it closely!) - five hundred years before the Montgolfiers!
