Crown of Syracuse
Directed By: Philip Heinrich
|Genre:||History, Comedy, Mystery, Adventure|
|Released:||July 19th, 2007|
Though Crown of Syracuse is essentially well made, it doesn't have enough substance to adequately interest and engage the viewer. There is not enough conflict for it to be a drama, and the script's attempts at comedy feel awkward without the proper mood to set them up. This all may be due to the source material; while it may be interesting by itself, it seems to be badly suited for adaptation to the screen.
