Far superior to theatrical version
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2019
Close to my favorite Ridley Scott film. Very enjoyable, captivating and entertaining excursion into a blended fictional history. Much of the dialog serves as relevant and poignant sooth-sayer-istic adages to reflect on.
The concept of the superiority of individual choice and will to action over dogmatic belief or blind faith rises to the fore in many scenes.
Bonus: The motivations of the main characters make much more sense with this extended director's cut. Gaps in theatrical cut left gaps in my brain.
