Critic Reviews for The War Lord

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (3)

  • Runs on and on and on, but proves nothing whatever about the survival of the fittest.

    April 23, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Heston is more convincing in his battle scenes than in romancing Rosemary Forsyth, but nevertheless delivers a hard-hitting performance.

    July 3, 2008 | Full Review…
  • The rituals of pagan mythology are well observed - cabalistic idols, sacrifices - as is Heston's disintegration in the face of a mental force that he can't understand.

    January 26, 2006 | Full Review…
  • There is plenty of bow-and-arrow shooting and throwing spears and pouring boiling oil and battering-ramming the great oak doorway and assaulting the fortress with a scaling-tower.

    May 9, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An intelligent historical drama, exciting and atmospheric while never losing sight of the human passions that are its driving force.

    April 23, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Lumbering sword and shield tale with Heston.

    April 20, 2006 | Rating: 2/5

    Charrlton Heston was and always will be an acting god. This film showed off more than one facet of his unholy acting talent and I loved it...
