Elena Anaya?

That's just not fair. I have to get this now.

5.6/10 on IMDB so far...

Not that promising.

Finally had a chance to watch this a couple of days ago. Its a beautifully shot movie but was much less than what I expected. A little better than the average IMDB score.

It's not great, not horrible either.

Very mediocre.

A big strike against it, aside from the amateurishly handled action, is the fact that they basically took a whole series of books and condensed it into one movie. Why they decided on that is beyond me.

The Thai PAL DVD is up for sale at

Anamorphic, DD 5.1 Spanish, English Subtitles all for $12.50, now that's worth the price for this film, including shipping! Probably no extras, but extras aren't worth spending an extra 15 dollars on the Spanish DVD, which doesn't even have English-subtitled extras...
