I'm surprised at how many bad reviews this film has. It is good on so many levels and entertaining for adults and kids. The characters on both sides seem complex and we can understand their views and reasons. Visually it is amazing and the story - although a little contrived and silly in parts - is clever and has its surprises. The action sequences make it a good war film too. Lastly the film is an exotic and a daring adventure with some points of wisdom.
