Unfortunately is just another wasted film
This is my first review in the IMDb, and I’m doing this just because I saw a terrible wasted film. In the beginning I really tried to see the best part of it. You think, “Oh, come on is a “C” movie, let’s give a chance to this awful actor, or, the direction is not good but, let me just see it from another angle….” but is impossible. The main actor is simply worse then you can handle, you never see the face of the actors in front, the action take always more time then needed (is a problem with the cut), and it simply goes on …
The movie lacks continuity, it doesn’t make you want to keep watching it, is sad, could be just a great film.
I saw in the end, that was a family project, (that explain the non-convincing extras and other actors) but any way, a good director/ editor consulting would just be great. The idea is good, but is impossible to do a great film without a good protagonist (that was maybe the biggest mistake) and a good director.
The soundtrack could be done with a really low budget, it would make the film flow better…
Amazing special effects and action, historical, religious idealism, but script not always tailored well to actors
Amazing special effects/explosions looked around at least 8 Million in my opinion, but they did it for 80K, so kudos. Furthermore, 2 families dreamed this up in their basement and got volunteers to build a village (and then burn it down)–amazing vision, organization, and talent. (The final sword fight was one of the longest and best choreographed I have ever seen.) As for the plot, not bad–it felt like they were headed towards political intrigue and got side-winded towards more action instead–but still, very classic though a little hard to understand all the subtleties at times.
Main actors were good, but acting suffered most because 1. script doctor needed to tailor script to actors’ personalities–not actors towards script 2. people acting because they had to 3. Acting with family members is difficult, especially when you’re pretending to be in love with someone you’re related to, which is a little awkward. 4. confusing storyline changes midway so the complex bad guy becomes simple near the end and some of the storyline nuances were lost.
But as for the historical inaccuracies, this film was remarkably accurate on several points: Firstly the realism (not hyper-realism with gritty and dirty people in undershirts) , Secondly the religious idealism of the Dark Ages (that many modern people do not understand), Thirdly the Roman-Briton civilization confronting the Saxon barbarians, (and putting the Saxon in their native tongue).
As for the religious element, it may make movie-junkies squirm–but the religious sentiment was quite different in the Dark Ages than it is in Hollywood now, and certainly shows a healthy form of idealism rather than the typical elitism found in critics’ circles. My only complaint is that there could have been more Liturgical focus as is found in Catholic/Anglican churches, but still the historical effort was appreciated.
Overall, good film for the family but slightly violent for the sensitive at heart.
