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

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1886 movies items)

" The other Christopher Columbus cantered film from 1982, this one attempted to be somewhat closer to what happened, with Columbus depicted as being flawed, but still somewhat “heroic”, and the voyage being doomed from the start.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: The cinematography Gerald Depardieu. All things considered. It’s one of the better Christopher Columbus films, made at the time. A highly, under appreciated Ridley Scott movie. Cons: It’s hard to over look at Christopher Columbus, as anything other than a monster. Although, points are awarded to the film for not brushing off the darker aspects of the discovery, it still paints him as a altruistic but flawed person. The many historical inaccuracies."

"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 "
