DATE REVIEWED: 03/22/2017


FORMAT: Laserdisc

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 43 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 24.2 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 6415.1 miles

SYNOPSIS: A British officer in 1850’s India uncovers a society of assassins.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: Historical to a certain degree.  Borders on the creepy in places.  

PROS AND CONS:  A young Pierce Brosnan is the centerpiece of this lavish period piece set in the time of the Raj.  The plot and storyline are based on true events according to the crawl at the start of the film.

There are some interesting twists and use of camera and acting here.  Enough to hold your interest for two hours.  This is one of those films that goes so far back in time that it is difficult to determine how historically accurate it is.  If this is accurate, the Jewel in the Crown was a very, very strange place.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
