Empire (UK) - - REVIEW -

Russell Mulc­ahy’s saga of cursed im­mor­tals and vic­to­ri­ous de­cap­i­ta­tion is, essen­tially, a heroic-zom­bie hor­ror, with an aptly stiff Christo­pher Lam­bert as its un­dead war­rior. Dire­l­ogue and dodgy ac­cents abound (hello, Sean Con­nery’s “Egyp-sh-ian”) but Mulc­ahy’s op­er­atic vi­su­als look fan­tas­tic in HD. Mind you, given the many shabby spin-offs, there re­ally should’ve been only one.
