on October 24, 2016
I first saw this film when it came out...and I was in Paris. So, perhaps I remember it with Parisian wine and food infused goggles.
Pretty much take any film that Sean Connery is in and, well, Sean is Sean. Sean works wonderfully with his character, a kind of monk based Sherlock Holmes of the middle ages.
Lovely imagery, great casting. F. Murray Abraham is kind of like Sean...another personality actor but he fits here. I'm not a big Christian Slater fan but in this film he has presence and believability. William Hickey is another personality player and yet is another fit. Ron Pearlman, in my view, gives a brilliant performance stealing the film as a half witted but crafty Salvatore.
Is this a movie to own? Only if you like owning too many movies Is this a movie to see? Yes. See it more than once? Maybe but no more than every 15 years.
