      John Gillett Sight & Sound The film has all the hallmarks of a great big bore (even in this heavily cut version, the first hair does seem pretty interminable); and yet the personality of its creator is there all the time, mixing dross with gold as he has always done. Mar 17, 2020 Full Review Trevor Johnston Time Out Silent-cinema genius he may well have been, but by this time in his career Abel Gance was creatively a shadow of his former self. Nov 15, 2007 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A bore. Rated: C+ Feb 22, 2014 Full Review TV Guide If the name of Abel Gance isn't reason enough to rent the film, then how about a cast that includes Orson Welles, Claudia Cardinale, Michel Simon, Vittorio De Sica, Jean Marais, Jack Palance, and Leslie Caron? Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 15, 2007 Full Review Film4 Staff Film4 This lengthy, academic and stilted pageant is made watchable only by familiar faces in the cast. Nov 15, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Rodney D An overlong and tedious costume drama. The director clearly has no clue how to stage a battle for the camera. Disjointed editing, lots of horses running around, intercut with stilted camp scenes fail to carry the day. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
