  • Ambitious but very tedious and talkatively hackneyed, redeemed just a smidge by the money shots of a swarm of extras on horseback sweeping across the sands. Full Review

  • A far, far cry from Lawrence of Arabia, but it has its diversions. Full Review

  • If there's going to be a cinematic Arab Spring, Jean-Jacques Annaud's clunky oil epic isn't it. Full Review

  • A slight script burdened by clumsy exposition, choppy editing and a skimpy sense of grandeur. Full Review
