Marco Polo

  • 60 minutes

This is a Netflix-made film by 19 Producers & 6 Directors, that is one of the most excellent films I've ever seen. It's like a complete movie. The costumes are exquisite of the Mongolian and Chinese culture of the 12th Century, and it gives a more in-depth understanding of Marco Polo's eastern travels and his life and Kublai Khan, the Mongolian leader. The film has everything—great acting, great cinematography, great dialog (with often a lot of Oriental wisdom thrown in), beautiful sets, and battle scenes. The male and female actors were very believable, as they were Chinese and Mongolian, but they were good actors also, and the men were very manly and handsome and the women strikingly beautiful. Of course Marco Polo was of Italian origin, played by Lorenzo Richelmy. The sexual scenes may have been a little overdone (and I'm very liberal), but if you can get by that, I think you will agree with me that it's a great movie. It's a series of 10 shows, and I believe a plan is in the works for a future continuing series. You don't want to miss this movie; Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Remy Hii, Zhu Zhu.
