Don't Miss It!! A MUST SEE!!!
The scope of King Maker is epic like “Lawrence of Arabia” or “Ben Hur”. Every scene is awesome and beautiful. It sort of reminded me of Leon Shamroy's work in "Cleopatra" or Robert Surtees from "Ben Hur", big in scope and breathtaking. The film’s editing was SUPERB and glided like silk. The cinematography is a knockout and I wished I was in a cinema hearing the audience gasp in delight. I just saw "THE 300” and was not impressed with the photography and it was in IMAX. "The King Maker" looks like it cost 100 million to make and I looked at the Internet Movie Data Base and they said it cost only 15 million. The screenplay is superb. The story is very fascinating, and at times funny, sad, brutal etc but NEVER boring. I think the screenplay is one of the movies strong points. "The King Maker" is far superior to “The 300” and never insults your intellect. The directing is first rate. It’s a human story with great action scenes. The acting is terrific starting off with handsome Gary Stretch, who brings us a man who is sensitive, tough, and I am sure he will appeal to all the women. ". John-Rhys-Davies is excellent, better than he was in “Lord of The Rings”. The girl who plays Maria Cindy Burbridge is a great beauty and fine actress, (WHAT A DOLL!) The lady who plays the queen is so evil and mean, you feel like screaming "You *itch" and "Hey beware of her”. This is a wonderful film. I suggest to everybody to see this film. The music was also haunting. Siam and European music themes in a wonderful marriage of sounds. Congratulations Mr. Winters and Thank You for producing a film that at times is "Captain Blood" other times "Spartacus" and other times "El Cid” and still have its own theme and flavor.
