"Attila"..reminiscent of movies made in the 1950's.
"Attila" contains action, plot and story-line reminiscent of movies made in the 1950's. The easy- to-follow story, fast paced action and of course..lots of blood reminded me of my youth sitting in a small-town theatre on a Saturday afternoon. If "Attila" were done in black and white I would have questioned the filming date. Under the direction of Emmanuel Itier I believe "Attila" hits it's mark. Cheik Kongo shows his incredible athleticism as the Nomad and scares the bejesus out of you without the utterance of a single word. Chris Conrad's portrayal of "Vito" makes him a believable hero and Mikayla Campbell's "McVee" the perfect heroine. Stunts were all too prevalent and often made you wonder "How'd they do that?". Xin's martial arts work was true artistry. Other strong performances came from Hossein Mardani as "Fleetwood" and Poncho Hodges as "Bulldog". Would like to see more from the screen writing team of Anthony Ferrante and Emmanuel Itier.
