3.0 out of 5 stars No Ben Hur etc
Mmm im torn over this film and the blu ray release.
As much as i love Heston this film made in 1965 does not sit comfortably amongst his great canon of work.He was to fair much better a couple of years later with Planet of the Apes.While this is an epic,the genre of which no one bettered Heston in,make no mistake this is no Ben Hur,El Cid or Ten Commandments in...

This review is from: The War Lord [DVD] (DVD)
This film is getting on a bit, and it shows sometimes. Nevertheless, this 1965 production, starring Charlton Heston and Richard Boone, still has a lot to offer. Set at the beginning of the 11th Century, in Normandy, it tells the story of a Knight, rewarded for loyal service, with a bequest of lands, and a run-down small castle. The land is poor, and the local villagers resentful. Still, the Knight, and his accompanying soldiers, rebuild the old fortress, and begin to impose the will of their master on the people.
This work is complicated by the arrival of invading Frisian warriors, from the lands to the North. In addition, there is the love interest, provided by Rosemary Forsyth, as Bronwyn, a reluctant village girl. This film is better than you might expect. The life of those hard times is well portrayed, as are the ancient weapons, the siege engines, and the pagan beliefs still prevalent then. No expense is spared, with a huge cast of attacking barbarians, and excellent battle scenes.

A glimpse into an unusual time, when life was hard, and considered cheap.

Have always liked this film - but it rarely seems to be shown these days? Anyway, took the plunge and acquired this Blu-ray, and have been very pleased with the purchase. Charlton at his best!
