I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago and since I had it on DVD, I was really eager to check it again. I remember it very well though, 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 cas... read more

" Depardieu's accent almost capsizes the film as it at first is hard to get all his words, but if one can get through this I have to admit this is a gorgeous looking production of a type we seldom (if ever) will get to see again. The scope of the film is enormous and Vangelis' music epic. There are some historic changes but what to except for a movie made to celebrate "the discovery" of the new world 500 years later."

"17th of March, DVD Vangeliksen huikea tunnusbiisi oli pitkään ainut asia, mitä ylipäätään tiesin tästä ja 1492 onkin turhan vähälle huomiolle jäänyt historiikkielokuva siitä, kuinka Kolumbus purjehti Atlantin yli ja löysi uuden mantereen. Eihän tämä todellakaan Ridley Scottin parhaimmistoa ole, mutta on suurimmalti osin suurelle yleisölle suunnattua viihdettä, josta joko pitää tai ei. Gerard Depardieu on ilmiömäinen nimikkoroolissaan ja Vangeliksen omaperäinen musiikki "
