Don't waste an hour and a half of your life!
9 May 2020 | by npvarleySee all my reviews

It's not often that I really criticise a movie, but this movie is utter dross.

From first minute to last, dross. Who thought it was a good idea to cast Mickey Rourke as a Roman general? He sounds like a punch-drunk Rocky doing an impersonation of Rod Steiger. Terrible casting.

The acting was as wooden as the trees in the Armenian forests. The editing and continuity were beyond bad. I mean, really, terrible. When the lead was scaling the cliffs, the continuity was all over the place. He was all over the rock face every 30 seconds, with the same sequence being reused several times, even though he'd moved on to a different section of the cliff just moments earlier.

The fight scenes were pathetic. The Asian woman cast as Rourke's mistress could hardly speak a word of English and mangled the lines badly.

The only one to come out of it with any credit was the actress playing Doria, the Armenian girl who helped the lead when he was lost in the mountains.

Seriously, don't waste your time.
