I could've sworn tears were coming out of my eyes when I was watching this. Tears of embarrassment to be precise!

But the worst part was theI could've sworn tears were coming out of my eyes when I was watching this. Tears of embarrassment to be precise! While the costumes in the film are pretty, the acting is terrible and the story is very, very lame! But the worst part was the fighting scene between the King's army and Prince's army.

A beautiful film to look at, but ruined by a horrible storyline.

Sickly as opposed to visually stunning, Little plot no character dev, and a terrible ending made me feel cheated when the film seemed to accidently end.
