"From one of the worst films of the year in Nativity 2 to what is by some way the best all on the same day. Find the biggest screen you can that is showing this film because it truly sets the bar for epic movies.
One thing shook me was how few people were involved in the making of the film. Today films need at least three producers, several Executive Producers and numerous other sort of producers as well as apparently hundreds of others. This had one Producer, a director, a director of photography and two screenwriters.
The point is that it in all of these key roles you have possibly the best in the roles.
Add to this a cast that any director would die for and we have what in my mind is one of the top five films of all time.
Steven Spielberg saw this and it made him want to make movies. Possibly someone watching this this week will make the same decision.
Five stars all the way."
