Review of She 1935

The word that came to my mind when watching She 1935 was “spectacle”. It’s very well done, with gorgeous sets and costuming. The acting is first rate, as well. But some scenes literally take your breath away. But none of that would matter, if there wasn’t a great story — and there is. It’s the story of a long quest, searching for the alleged secret of immortality. There’s a long voyage to get there, which the film spends a fair amount of time on. And it’s entertaining, as well as helping to cement the characters with the audience. Then they finally arrive, and meet She Who Must Be Obeyed. The immortal queen of the lost kingdom. She is beautiful, selfish, and values the life of nobody else. Except Leo! Because he’s the spitting image of her lost love.

She’s evil, deceitful, and will do anything to keep him with her. Even sharing the secret of immortality with him — the flame of life. But, be careful what you ask for …
