Kingdom of Boredom
Dammit. I wanted to like it. I like the Orlando Bloom. Ridley Scott usually rocks. Neeson, Thewlis, Irons. How can you go wrong with all those ingredients? Well, the script. Damn, shame, the movie LOOKED great. nice enough (if nothing new) score. Bloom plays sad well, but his character was lifeless and dragged the movie down. Don't think it was his fault, again, I'd fault the screenplay. Didn't go much of anywhere until the end when it did get exciting (the siege). Good stuff there, it's a shame it came after 90 minutes of people riding horses.
