It was a good remake with excellent effects and amazing costumes and make-up, but it's the stunts and the intense physical performances that make it marginally worthwhile watching. Don't expect remakes of the sequels.
The Heston cameo, though very cool, was entirely over the top.Added 11 April 2004 at 1:11 PM
