Twitter Capsule: Engaging yarn, if not quite the grand and lusty spectacle I remembered. Grand use of Neeson, literally. Tepid direction.

VOR:   So old-fashioned in grammar and sensibility it practically feels daring. Swordfights and clan honor! Dramas among straight-up middle-aged people! In the 1990s!
