    Director Martin Campbell's lumpy direction doesn't coalesce into anything much beyond a pleasant assembly of set pieces.
  2. Spectacular, fast, never boring. But it's also one of the more disappointing movies I've seen recently.

    Antonio Banderas signs up for charisma lessons from Anthony Hopkins -- but they just don't take.

    A slew of writers and an enthusiastic cast all do their jobs admirably enough to provide a couple of hours of unembarrassing entertainment.

    Nothing really works on any level above mediocrity.

    Lavishly produced swashbuckler that should have been far more entertaining.
  7. Entertaining, but it's about one notch below being something anybody really needs to see.

    Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas work with professional skill in a ludicrous vehicle.

    A romantic adventure-movie slapstick that's too screwy for the action crowd and too old-fashioned for the Home Alone contingent.

    This movie is phenomenal and definitely one of the most underrated movies of all-time. The plot is great, everything flows wonderfully fromThis movie is phenomenal and definitely one of the most underrated movies of all-time. The plot is great, everything flows wonderfully from scene to scene and it gives you that feel of a real authentic movie. The action is fantastic as well, I mean who doesn't love sword-fighting especially when its done this good. I thought characters were also well mapped out and you really do care what happens to them.
