  1. This is a very difficult film to follow. So many characters, so many allegiances, so much betrayal… Game Of Thrones it ain't, though. What it is, is what us in the motoring sector call 'serviceable', in that it gives us the requisite number of battles, some mediocre drama and not a razor in sight. What it fails to do is inject much life into these reliable old stand-bys, and consequently you sort of feel entertained (if rather confused), but you get the feeling you could be doing something better.

    If it's a quiet day, you've taken the dog for a walk, the kids are at school and the wife is having an affair with your best mate… than this certainly beats painting the fence. If, on the other hand you have access to other, more well known epics, like I dunno… Braveheart or Last Of The Mohicans, either through the medium of DVD of the miracle of Film On Demand, than you may want to take a rain check on this. But the choice, as they say, is yours. 5/10

  2. I am highly surprised to be the first to comment this Russian film shot two years ago. I guess that in eastern Europe, the people over there have access to the web…Or to theatres.

    It was released in France in DVD. Well, during the first minutes, I expected, I did not know exactly why, to watch something in the line of THE THIRTEENTH WARRIOR…

    What a deception. Not a bad movie, but so…How could I explain?

    So predictable, so much "déjà vu". Yes: "déja vu". Full of clichés you have seen a million times before. Nothing to do with John Mac Tiernan's powerful, fantastic film. But it remains a pretty acceptable time waster. It deserves to be watched. I preferred CENTURION, made in 2010 too. It was far better than this.
