the last legion

The Last Legion, starring Colin Firth and (wait for it) Ben Kingsley.

Why was this movie made? Beats the fuck out of me. There is this strange pointlessness to it, where there are no real characters and barely passable dialogue and a story that only provokes a confused kind of shrug. It *might* have been re-purposed as a kid's movie, and then I can almost see it, just add a little more camp to what's already there, maybe a more English kind of Princess Bride. But no. Instead you get this bland PG nonsense. Also, I hope this is the last time Colin Firth imagines himself an action star.
