1 1/2 stars: Your chess is bad and you should feel bad.
Young Kate looks good but it's not enough.
becoz i dun play chess - -
Kate Beckinsale adds a lot of sexual tension to the film, too. Hers is a very sexy character, because she feels so real and true - she been endowed by the writer(s) with quirks. Always a good thing to do.
The (very classy) nudity adds an intimate tone to the film as well.
Oh.. and dare I point out.. METHOS!.. lol.. sorry, I was a highlander fan.. and my favorites were always Methos and Amanda.. so seeing Peter Wingfield in this was unexpected..
