    Started to watch it but soon got bored of it.

    Defo one to avoid. Not one of Besson's best that's for sure.

    :thumbsdow

    Didn't realise that was the last film he directed.
    Looks like he's taken to co-producing instead.
    The criticisms from Joan must have hit him hard!

    each to their own mate, but i enjoyed it. battle scenes are good, hoffman is fantastic, jovovich shows she can act, the film itself looks great, besson is imaginative if not a great storyteller. in fact that is probably where the film is at its weakest, the story of joan herself is never told in great detail, just a series of images which the viewer is expected to link together via their own knowledge of the story of joan of arc. regardless of that there is a decent little film underneath it all.
    i got my region 3 copy for about £2.75 and i would have to say at that price the dvd is well worth a purchase. :smashin:

    I enjoyed this one too.

    Saw a bit of it on a TV screening which piqued my interest and the next day saw it in WH Smith for £3.99.

    Bought it and as I say thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Thanks for all the replies - I saw the DVD in a bargain bin (£4.99) and at that price decided to pick it up. Haven't watched it yet but at that price it doesn't have to work hard to impress ;)

    On a related note can anyone suggest any other (relatively modern) films set in medieval Europe during the 100 years war? Henry V (obviously) but any others of note?
