  • Critic Reviews
    "...It is not only a spectacle the likes of which we may never see again, but also brings an elegance to the form not much seen before its release, either..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[A] feast of visual detail....The film overflows with deep-focus vistas, towering sets, densely crowded battle sequences and the imposing presence of two remarkable physical specimens, Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren."
    New York Times

    "[I]t's clear that the director relished working in 70mm and having such rich resources at his disposal. As a spectacle, it's muscular and more dynamic than most."
    Sight and Sound

    5 stars out of 5 -- "There are obvious resonances with today's religious tensions, but this is a story of much more, and it is handled superbly."
