I managed to stay awake. And I must agree the comment I heard from someone: there were a lot of goats and they played very nice.
that white horsey knows how to play dead!
The last hour or so was visually spectacular but overall, this film left a sour taste in my mouth. Coupled with the fact that there is an implicit as well as explicit institutionalised racist culture that is pervasive in our society which was reflective in the production of this film, were lack-luster performances especially considering someone of Christian Bale's calibre.
Perhaps a Muhammed so and so would have pulled off a better job. A more convincing portrayal. A more historically accurate portrayal, at least geographically. Of course there will be many who do not agree with this line of criticism and will insist on trying to criticise the film within and of itself. If that's the case then I would say this film was a bland, achingly un-engaging, drearily paced, chaotic and emotionally hollow mega-hit. There is a frustratingly evident superficiality to this production.
