The 13th Warrior
On Friday night, a friend invited me over to watch "The 13th Warrior". I generally enjoy Antonio Banderas as an actor and had never seen this movie, so I happily went over to watch it.
While I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see many of my friends, I didn't enjoy the movie overly much. The acting was fine, but the beginning of the movie was in whatever language and not subtitled (although Antonio Banderas' character had someone translating to him sometimes). Therefore, I really had no idea what was going on for a long time. The action scenes were okay, but the movie is about 10 years old and you could really tell that by the special effects.
So, while I wouldn't say this movie was bad...I would definitely say it wasn't that good. If you are in the mood for an Antonio Banderas movie, I would definitely recommend one of the Zorro or Shrek movies instead of this one.
If anyone else has seen the movie, I would love to know your thoughts on it!
