Critic Review - Combustible Celluloid

It's cold, misguided, confusing, illiterate, boring, badly acted and flat-out laughable.

the alexander korda, 1939 version, was marvellous. it was clearly propaganda, made in expectation of the approaching war. the 1939 version celebrated the fine british qualities of courage, tenacity and decency. the 2002 version is anti-british hate propaganda and gets nearly everything wrong. by the 1890s, british soldiers fought in khaki uniforms; the last occasion on which british soldiers wore scarlet in battle was in 1879. the 2002 version is ignorant, vicious rubbish, pathetically acted, hopelessly directed and laughable on every level.

Confusing? Maybe you should be better off with Lion King.
