The Milanese are led by Alberto Da Giussano, who forms `The Army of Death' to fight off Mr Barbarossa and his German hordes. This guy scores quite high on the annoyance Richter scale, with a performance that lends itself more to nativity /am dram than historical fiction.
Where it really falls down is the bad dubbing which is like one of those gross Italian 1970's horror types where all the voices are being acted (badly) into the same microphone and the worst sound effects team on the planet have got out the coconut shells for the horse riding bits. That is something else, we all know films can have montages, but this one has horse riding montages, that go on for ages. Yes even Rocky had a montage but this one is just riding your horse, we know that is how they travelled and it does nothing to take the plot further.
This does for the history of Italy what `Braveheart' did for Scotland, and there are some tragically pitiful similarities, with the aforementioned Mr Da Giussano leading more than one rousing chant of `freedom!!!' I wont even mention the ending which is so bad that even the Disney Studious would have balked at such over the top levels of mawkishness. There is not a single reason to see this film, and hundreds why not to, this is one where spending two hours making shadow puppets with your own arse would have been time better spent.

Really bad movie, never finished watching it. Total waste of money even for a cheap rental. Give it a pass.Published on October 25, 2013 by Raymond Merriam
Script seemed to have been borrowed from Braveheart. Storyline was a bit disconnected at times. Action was so-so. Happy ending seemed silly.Published on September 6, 2013 by Todd Denton
