Jovovich brings an intensity to the role well-matched to Besson's stylistic energy, though this comic-bookish take on Jeanne D'Arc won't be winning any historical-society awards. [Blu-ray]

This unusual French interpretation of Joan of Arc sees her as a radical zealot like John Brown.

Does not have the grandeur, the poetry, the range of Lawrence of Arabia but makes up for its shortcomings by being eminently user-friendly.

Besson gives intensely vivid battle sequences and haunting interior moments the same muscular certainty.

An entertaining, grand-scale historical drama.

Eye-filling, mostly very compelling and incorrigibly weird.
