Someone does shout, "Get the men and arm the elephants!" Sadly, this alone doesn't make you think of Cecil B. DeMille as the press notes would like you to. "Hercules and the Captive Women" comes more to mind.
It is overlong, overproduced, overscaled and crammed with too many plots, subplots and digressions.
Without knowing what has been lost in the process, it would be hard to imagine the original film was any less repetitive or more dramatically engaging than what remains.
Compelling enough that one wishes to be able to see the entire eight hours, with all the missing context filled back in. As it is, this short version seems even longer than eight hours.
Visually ravishing and full of double-crosses and nefarious plots worthy of Shakespeare.
A film that is stunning to watch.
LEGEND OF SURIYOTHAI looks very much like the "larger than life" film epics of 1950s and 1960s
American audiences expect crouching tigers and hidden dragons in their Asian fare, so plodding elephants may be a little anti-climactic. This one is for the history buffs.
With excellent acting, amazing sets and production standards as high as any I've seen, the movie has only one real problem: Once you're lost in the jungle, it's a very long way out.
What pieces of the story you do manage to figure out don't carry any emotional weight.
The film tells its story in the flattest manner possible, a story that could have been fascinating and enthralling.
Enjoy the gorgeous and gaudy splendor of the sets, the locations and the spare-no-expense battle scenes featuring 3,500 extras and 160 elephants.
Great historical drama from Thailand, the America version was edited and presented by Francis Ford Coppola.
