Critics reviews

The grand scale of this elaborate production is beautifully captured with excellent camera work. It is hard to remember this is pre-CGI, as the sea battle and the chariot race scenes are lengthy (over ten minutes) and spectacular. Fatal accidents among the racers were captured and later led to new safety rules. To someone who is not a silent film connoisseur, the acting is unexpectedly smooth and subtle.
