    A far, far cry from “Lawrence of Arabia,” but it has its diversions.

    Helmer/co-scripter Jean-Jacques Annaud's rep for spectacle over screenplay is again borne out in this overblown yet oddly anemic epic of warring Arabian tribes during the nascent oil boom.

    Banderas hams and Pinto flutters. If it weren’t for Strong and some colourful art direction, you could chalk this up as a busted well.

    There's undoubtedly a good film to be made out of the scramble for oil in the Arabian desert in the 1920s – but this, for all its herculean efforts, is not it.

    Ambitious but very tedious and talkatively hackneyed, redeemed just a smidge by the money shots of a swarm of extras on horseback sweeping across the sands.

    That's odd because it's really a better film than that.

    I liked the Arab Chief who was more interested in his traditions than the flow of oil. The conflict with he and the other Arab leader was interesting. Usually Arab's in film are terrorists to be shot, but here there is more to it, as the Western Influence is Oil Conglomerates.

    The film is not as bad as these Critics complain.

    VERDICT: CRITICAL CRICKETS ~ 55 OF 100
