Since Brando's passing I've been watching many of his films and I just watched the much maligned Christopher Columbus which I'd read nothing but bad press about. I wasnt expecting very much but to my surprise this a GREAT film. Perhaps there's too much swash and not enough buckle for some but in my book it's just the right combination of adventure, history, romance, and legend.SUPERB!
Many people were p*ssed off when this film turned out to be a fun swashbuckler instead of a strictly grim historical drama. they wanted disease and instead they got high adventure, hot babes, and sword fights! LOL! I love it!
