Sony President Tom Rothman personally arranged the shooting for Ridley Scott’s latest movie. The Russian and Austrian armies joined forces against Napoleon. They discovered a French camp on the edge of a field and our titular character hid his cannons and invited the attack. Let the historical saga begin. We see dark gray skies and beyond that, the image has a blue tint. Phoenix (quite aptly) wears a three-cornered hat. “Wait,” he says to his army. “Let them think they have a higher ground.” Fog sets in and it looks like snow is falling as the armies approach.
Mounted and foot armies are coming and carrying rifles. As the armies fire their weapons, they mount a line of soldiers on top of their horses, slicing with swords. Napoleon watches from afar, barking orders and scrutinizing the gruesome act like a chess master. Our main man then sends the infantry. At this point, it’s clear that the movie looks huge with hundreds and hundreds of extras. “Prick your wings!” Napoleon shouts. Riders from his side sprang out of the tree line, into a large area targeting the now exposed enemy forces. They withdraw.
