  • An action epic with the spirit of the Hollywood swordplay classics and the grungy ferocity of "The Road Warrior." show more

  • Tempers moments of despair with deliriously romantic passages abetted by James Horner's traditionally lush score and photography by John Toll ("Legends of the Fall's" Oscar winner). show more
