Melodramatic rubbish, but fun rubbish. Good sets, costumes and all that, very little regard for accurate period detail. Many over the top performances, but it's entertaining. A bit overlong, a little more editing would have helped out.

This "film" defines Potboiler. It's a good story which propels the action, but the director used every tasteless device imaginable in the telling. Worth seeing if only to witness how low Laurence Olivier was willing to go to support his family, and to have ingenue Kathleen Beller make your mouth water. Then there;'s Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall both doing penance for something or other; God alone knows what caused them to do this. Hollywood's a heartbreak, Baby!

Watching this atrocity makes one wonder if [i]anyone[/i] involved in the film read the novel.

Great cast (Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, Laurence Olivier), but poorly acted, directed, and written. Feels like a weak soap opera.
