This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
solid depiction of one of the most ruthless battles fought in human history. while it doesn't do much to work the characters it is good at recreating the epic proportions and mayhem that must have been even grander, that is - scarier. one thing that i have to point out is how cgi, when employed wrong, diminishes the idea of epic battles. while here, cavalry scenes with its extras seem bigger and mightier in scale.
I hate movies "In War",any scene that involves Wars....BUT THIS movie is in my collection & I watch it every time I remember.I miss it ,that means I love it. Marvellous experience,one of the rare almost perfect movies...!:-)**********
