Good old fashioned Epic
on 21 May 2010
I remember watching this a child (many years ago) and many of the scenes stuck in my memory. I was glad to see it out on DVD at last. Not one of the great movie epics of all time but covers an unusual period and story line. Not as brutal or gory as Mel Gibson's 'Apocolypco' but some good set pieces.
Yul Brynner looks the part of a native American chief but George Chakiris with his bushy air doesn't strike me as a typical Mayan. But it's good fun and I enjoyed it.
