Ridley Scott Storbritannien, 1977

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Duellists

It had an interesting premise, but in execution it doesn't really work. It just kind of meanders along, and every now and again there's a beautiful shot, but I never felt much dramatic tension. Everything just happened and whether these characters survived or not meant very little to me.
