Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I will probably re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good. Anyway, I remember it very well, before it was released, there was a huge buzz about this movie and the expectations were really high.

The main problem is the historical accuracy I can bet. Columbus was a mass murderer. When he came back to the islands, his men plundered it of gold and came up with a plan of slavery which they used t

“Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I will probably re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good. Anyway, I remember it very well, before it was released, there was a huge buzz about this movie and the expectations were really high. Indeed, in 1992, it was the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus so, obviously, the studios wanted to cash in on this massive event by releasing a big prestigious epic directed by Ridley Scott, one of the best directors around at the time and still today. Eventually, it didn’t get much love and many thought it was a disappointment. Ok, it wasn't a masterpiece but I did like it (and compared to the abysmal ‘Christopher Columbus: The Discovery’, well, it was definitely not bad at all after” read more

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Still, this failure -- and his frustration over never actually reaching mainland America -- renders him a tragic figure. Though he was the dreamer and pioneer who first set foot in the New World and brought treasures and territory to Spain, he died all but forgotten. The movie, alas, for all its wondrous beauty, is destined to suffer a similar fate. - Hal Hinson, Washington Post Whether or not that image has a core of truth, are there really many people who want to experience it all over again"

" I remember seeing this movie in middle school and it was a borefest. This movie did not had an anything new to ofter that we have not seen any movie that was based off Christopher Columbus from what I've seen. I hear the other Christopher Columbus movie that came out that year was worst, but I have no plans to see it."

" Cast : Gérard Depardieu, Sigourney Weaver, Loren Dean, Tchéky Karyo, Frank Langella What was it about? Christopher Columbus' discovery of the Americas and the effect this has on the indigenous people. My two cents: There was a huge buzz about this and the expectations were really high but many people thought it was a disappointment. Ok, it wasn't a masterpiece but I did like it. The directing was allright, the music by Vangelis was epic and I thought that Gérard Depardieu was a g"
