5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Family Fantasy Movie., 30 Jan 2009
This review is from: Arabian Nights [DVD] [2000] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I have been waiting to see this when I ordered it and read all the reviews, they sounded promising and exicing. So when I got the DVD, I instanly put it in the machine and let myself go into the wonder of Arabia and fantasy. It's about a young Sutlan (Dougray Scott) killing his wife instead of his brother as they were having a affair behind his back. In the brink of madness and slowly comsuming to be alone, he plans to marry one woman from the Harlem and then kill her the next day. But when a young woman (Mili Avital) argees with this destiny, she hopes that her stories will stop him from doing the nasty deed by bringing love and amazing stories during night and day. As time goes on, he soon falls for his wife and so does she but with the looming threat of his brother returning to get revenge, will they surrive? I was not disappointed with this, stunning scenery and amazing special effects make it awesome to look at. The stories are told in excellent ways, mixed with tradgey, love and the fight between good and evil. The pefomances are top-notch with a extreme ammount of known cast from Scott as the tragic Sultan and Mili Avital playing a good storyteller. It's worth for children to watch apart from some scary scenes like the massive genie, battle scenes and grown-up issues they may not understand. But it's a massive gem to find, I enjoyed every second and felt like I was right in it. Worth every penny, highly recommended if you adore escapsim and fantasy with a tasty guy playing the Sultan! But be warned by two issues, make sure you buy the American verison as the English one is cut horribly by thirty minutes and it's a very long movie. I watched in two parts so be sure you have time to watch this grand and brilliant movie.
