Audience Reviews for Alatriste

  • Oct 21, 2010
    This Spanish period piece is beautifully shot, well cast and well acted. The sword play is possibly the most realistic ever to be seen on film emphasising the brutality and pragmatism of its life or death nature and paying no homage to the sport of fencing that has developed since and usually influences such movies. The suffocating political, class and religious undertow of those times is thematic and frames the protagonist's efforts to exist with dignity in the most difficult of circumstances. Don't be put off by the subtitles if you don't speak Spanish - it's an excellent picture.

    Well.... The main problem with this movie is that the story asums you know all about Spain's conflicts during the 16th century. So, if you didn't pay attention to your history classes, you're lost. Nice ambientation, but it all goes down by the weak performances. The editing doesn't helps, either....

    Viggo Mortensen is of course the perfect choice for the battle-hardened Captain who has to fight fellow musketeers and court intrigues. The action is much like the film itself: realistic, unspectacular, grounded, and blunt. Sadly, the pacing is off several times, some of the parts of the film feel very episodic. The flow suffers from that and makes the film feel much longer than it already is. Which is too bad, because there are moments of brilliance. Several scenes even look like old period paintings. Unfortunately, that's not enough to entertain.
