1492, is stunning with it's images and it's soundtrack. It's honestly a really big triumph in the cinema. Ridley Scott directed 1492, and the movie is highly intelligent with it's direction. Great performances, though the accents are annoying. Besides the accents, everything is perfect in 1492, including Gerard Depardieu's amazing portrayal of Columbus. Be prepared for quite a historical masterpiece. Which 1492 truly is.

Sadly this film was a flop at the cinema and Gerard Depardieu appears to be a strange choice for the role of Colombus, but 1492 is still a highly watchable movie, which is very well made and thought provoking. Armand Assante puts in a great performance and its hard to believe that its the same actor that played the villain in the nonsense that was Judge Dredd. Michael Wincott is excellent as the sinister Moxica. Ridley Scott rarely makes bad films and this certainly is not one of them and if you like history, you will like this film. Also the soundtrack composed by Vangelis is a great movie score adding a great atmosphere to the movie.
Other reviewers have stated that there is a lot of violence in this movie but I would say it is the opposite. The most gory scene in the film is when an indian has his hand cut off. There are a couple of battles and executions but these scenes are not excessive, and are necessary to the plot.
Dont listen to what the critics say about this film, its well worth watching.

This was one film I inherited from my brother when he gave me his video collection. For months it sat gathering dust until I finally got bored and decided to watch it. How gutted I was I didn't view it earlier!
1492 is one of those very rare films where you can really feel the sheer heart and passion that the lead actor has poured into his role. Gerard Depideau is frankly superb and you instantly feel that he really is Columbus and he really did cross that massive ocean.
What's really interesting about this movie though is how it concentrates on not only the events leading up to the discovery but also the aftermath which is so often overlooked. Most people could tell you that Columbus was the guy who discovered America, but not much else about him. This film tells you about the hassles beforehand and his unfortunate struggle thereafter.
A truely moving and educational film. This is worthy of anyones collection.

I saw this film some years ago and because it was so different both in subject matter and the way in which the film was made I felt that maybe it was time to have another look. For me this film is superb..very very different to the usual rubbish made today and I have no hesitation if like me you like to watch a film that has a high degree of quality about it and is different

While this film flopped at the box-office, I feel it deserves recognition as a cinema classic. It is beautifully filmed, and everyone concerned seems to have given it their all.

There are moments, like the scene where the ships are about to set sail, that are utterly captivating. When I look at that scene, I find it hard not to think of the launches in the late sixties, early seventies, from Cape Canaveral. There is the same sense of anticipation as the crews make their way down to the boats. But of course, the moon missions had official sanction, and there was no doubt that the rockets were on course for the moon. Here was a man setting out for a world whose existence he had no proof of whatsoever, and having to argue his case with some incredibly dangerous people in the process, to gain the right to explore.

The film also boasts a beautiful score from Vangelis, although it is quite sparingly used. The principal theme in particular is haunting.

There are other reviewers here whose grasp of history may well be better than mine, and this may be one more case of history being rewritten in the cinema, nevertheless it does convey a very powerful sense of the danger and mystery of those voyages. It is a long story, but one which I find myself coming back to.

Simply an amazing look into the life of Christopher Columbus. We discover who he was, what made him tick, we see what he accomplished and how it really backfired on him. This film shows us largely what Columbus had to do to accomplish his discovery of the New World. It shows us that Columbus didn't know where he would wind up, some thought that they would fall off the edge of the world. Columbus didn't seem to think so, he already knew that the world was probably round. What he did not know was that they were not venturing on a new found, easy way to the Asian continent. Instead they were headed to an unfamiliar place, a place full of surprises, wonder and beauty. A gorgeous, lush, tropical, plant filled paradise. The scene where Columbus comes in contact with a new kind of people, the Indians, is simply well filmed and photographed. That scene captured the surprise Columbus had when he discovered that he was merely just a guest, in a foreign place. Somebody already intruding on a land that has already been conquered, by the Indians who inhabit Columbus's dream. It soon turns into his own nightmare, as he trys to accomplish his dream and the natives rebel against him and his men. Near the end of the film a hurricane hit's his New World, basically surprising him and shattering his dreams. Even before the hurricane the film demonstrates to us that his dream was already being ruined. Moxica a spanish nobleman who tallied along with Columbus on his second voyage back to the New World, basically causes havoc for him there. As a result, there are wars and battles that brew, murder, Indians become his slaves, everything falls apart for Columbus. The film not only captures the essence of Columbus's hardtimes, but it also captures some of the remarkable things he did accomplish.Read more ›
