Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. I mean, come on, the whole thing really looked awesome and, in my book, a movie starring Sean Connery and Michael Caine in all their glory, it doesn’t really get better than that... So, it really sounded like heaven to me and, boy, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, they were both rather awesome and I just loved t... read more

"4.1 Huston/Yhdysvallat & Iso-Britannia Uusintakatselu Man Who Would Be King on samanaikaisesti erinomainen klassinen seikkailuelokuva ja erinomainen parodia klassisista seikkailuelokuvista. Tollon rajattomalla itsevarmuudella maailmaa tarkastelevat suuret seikkailijaengelsmannit Connery ja Caine alistavat kaukaisten maankolkkien takaperoisia rättipäitä ja kaatuvat hybriksen armottomissa kourissa. Molemmilla rooli on yksi uran parhaista."

It is a rather typical adventure flick featuring 2 rogue soldiers both terribly witty, arrogant and quite charismatic. Of course, you could argue that there was not much depth in this tale but, I thought that the plot"

"February 29 "Peachy, I'm heartily ashamed for gettin' you killed instead of going home rich like you deserved to, on account of me bein' so bleedin' high and bloody mighty. Can you forgive me?" "That I can and that I do, Danny, free and full and without let or hindrance." "Everything's all right then." What a hell of an adventure this was. It is a timeless story about friendship and the story is very interesting and it's one of those adventure movies that really feels like an adventure just "
