Review by Frederic William Gaarde III (posted on 20-Mar-2005)

The War Lord is a great movie! It deals with a time that's often overlooked in the history of Western Europe and England. Richard Boone gave a great performance in this movie as the man and warrrior who raised Heston from a child and guided him into becoming the great Lord that he was destined to become. Great fighting scenes and lots of action!
