You know that moment in a movie you see an actor that you feel shouldn't be in the movie you're watching because for whatever reason it just kills the movie for you. Well. . . . that's how I felt when I saw Mila Kunis in this movie.
I think it would be a good one if they went beyond the gore, like a life story that led up to his 'brilliant', and totally ethical battlefield tactics...lol. Mel Gibson should direct it. It could be like the Romanian love child of 'The Patriot' and 'Apocolypto'. On the same note: I ould LOVE to see a great, high budget film about Elisabeth Bathory. A few have made some sophomoric attempts, but either had great difficulty capturing the bleak mood and environment of a Lady that desired company so badly that she invited gypsy strangers inside the castle walls during wartime, or they twist it into some stupid vampire story. Why does everything have to be vampires? Why can't the Lord of the Carpathians simply be more violent and brilliant against foreign invaders, or a woman driven mad from isolation that she believes that bathing in the blood of the innocent will keep her young forever (Blood, Milk & Sky, baby)... If someone made a film about Teppish today, he would probably ride a unicorn into battle, and sparkle under the full moon. Elisabeth Bathory would probably be Lilith, and could only be defeated by pickled turnips that were blessed by the only rabbi to have ever assisted the pope on an exorcism.[/quote] the truth is often much more horrible than anything someone can make up.
@meeksbam Seeing it's only 10 episodes long, should I wait and marathon it? Or is it okay if I watch it as it airs because I'm not going to die waiting each and every week? What I mean is: is the plot going to be intense like in true detective or broadchurch with lots and lots of twists or is it more drama like with steady evolutions of relationship between the characters?
@CrazyPurple you can watch the episode of agents of shield, there are no real spoilers that pertain to this movie (i haven't watched the movie yet but watched agents of shield)but it stands well on it's own.
The movie was overall horrible. I was very tempted to see it in the cinema, but I can't remember what happened and I didnt - something I now see as a great thing. The whole actor pov camera style, is so worn out, especially in movies this genre. I wont begin looking for logic in few scenes or as to why in the hell would they do some of the things they did, so I'll stop there, and just say the camera work is horrible. Story? Also horrible. Seen before, heard before, in every possible version, and this one is definitely not special in any way. Acting was alright, thats why I give it 1/10. Overall movie, as you might figure out, is a waste of time, wouldnt recommend watching unless you really want to.
