Seen on dvd at my sister’s place

The trailer is as boring as the movie. Never bothered seeing this movie as I’ve never read any positive review about this ‘epic tale’. I got the dvd for free a year ago, but it wasn’t until my sister decided to watch it on her new HD screen that I decided to give it a shot too. Luckily I had my laptop with me during the movie so I could look up some stuff about Columbus online. That kind of made the experience worthwhile. The movie itself is total crap. I mean, total crap. The acting is wooden. The dialogue is silly. The music is horrible. The over-use of close-ups and slow motions are annoying. The lack of interesting action ruins this action/adventure movie. There is no drama to make it a drama.

Just like Columbus failed on his first journeys (according to the Spanish rulers who expected him to find a shorter way to Asia or to at least bring back a lot of gold), Ridley Scott totally fails in making a dramatic action adventure biopic.
