(kr) wrote: Director: Yannis VaragdisWith Sebastian Koch, John CleeseIt is a dramatization of the life of a Greek historical figure - Ioannis Varvakis (1745-1825). He began as a 17 year old pirate on the Aegean, attacking Turkish merchant ships for booty and much praised by his fellow Greek countryman, who at the time were under the oppressive yoke of the Ottoman Empire. His fame brings him to the attention of Catherine the Great of Russia who hires him to open up the Caspian Sea for Russian-Ottoman trade. There he prospers, first with simple fish then gains exclusive rights to trade in caviar. He discovers a way to preserve the fish eggs allowing them to be carried to distant markets. Many Honours are bestowed upon him by Catherine and soon he is a millionaire. He is also a great philanthropist and invests in schools in Greece and a monastery.The one thing that baffles me is the inaccuracy in the story of Tzar Paul - Catherine became the ruler of Russia after the assassination of Paul - she was married to him! How could the script writers get this detail wrong?Years pass successfully, but he hankers to go back to Greece once more and after the death of his grown up son, he gives his wealth over to his daughter who is with him in Russia and travels back to Greece to help in the 1821 revolution and civil war. Once again he is seen as a hero in the country but is too divisive a figure for the new government to handle. Thus he is kept in isolation on a remote British Greek island Zakynthos, where he eventually dies.It is too sentimental at times - the character is obviously well regarded by the director. It also flips fairly quickly through the episodes of his life so the film is effectively a sketch rather than an exploration of an extraordinary character.

(it) wrote: (63%)As far as 1950's monster movies go that deliver plenty of mayhem, carnage, and fun then this is one of the very best of the lot. Absent are long drawn out dry scenes usually found in these movies slowing everything down that aren't really needed, and instead in its place the pacing is quite swift with the monster actually being present on screen for a good degree of screen time. The plot is simple stuff centred around an Italian boy selling off an alien egg found washed up on the beach, and the resulting ever growing lizard monster on the loose causing havoc wraps up the plot. All fans of monster movies need to give this a look for the sheer entertainment value.

(jp) wrote: You know, I know this film was trying to do nothing but be uplifting and whitewash the horrors of war, but I was enjoying it. Problem is, it just kept hitting the audience over the head with the schmaltz. There's a tipping point, right around where our main character disobeys an order and magically saves the day and is pardoned, where the clichs finally begin to override the enjoyment.
(au) wrote: A thoroughly gripping horror flick, it lays the foundations for 'found-footage movies,' even with slightly weak narrative and flaws (which were built upon in future entries in the series). Strongest one so far.Verdict: B+
