1492: Conquest of Paradise Movie Review

Hop to

Ridley Scott took a serious mis-step with this attempt at retelling the story of Christopher Columbus' 'discovery' of America. Depardieu does a great job in the lead role, bringing a necessary mix of vulnerability of Kinski-esque arrogance to the character, but the attempts at reconciling the truth of the man with the fiction and legends built up around him prove to be extremely tedious and worthy. Another problem is Vangelis' intrusive score which simply overwhelms the film at times.
