    Tween you and another critic I read, this seems like a must-see flick — a real sleeper, like yiu said. Funny, the other guy hated the 3D, and you love it. Guess I’ll have to check for myself now!

    I have to say, this is the first full-fledged review aside from those abysmal, self-proclaimed 4-5 word reviews that seem to have become the norm of critics these days, which truly captures what I believe. Although I too enjoyed the historical aspects of the film, I believe that they should be taken with the slightest consideration and seen more as background decor, such as the subtly rendered lighting of an artistic landscape which helps encapsulate but does not significantly capture the essence of the subject. The film itself came off more as a classic hero-esque flick that would easily become recognizable trademarks for a specific genre, which in this case I shall dub historical action hero for the lack of a more adequate, clever alternative. It is quite disheartening to see the poor reception from many popular critics, but the presence of one candle, no matter how seemingly insignificant, can light a sea of darkness. Good day to you sir.

    Not my usual type of movie but this one intrigues me after this thorough review.
