Dude Rates Movies

It tries to be complete and ends up being good at nothing. In terms of screentime, it is faithful to the quote that appears at the end of the movie: "France, the army, Joséphine" (with "Joséphine" lasting a bit longer that the other two words): the whole love story with Joséphine takes a fair share of the movie; unfortunately it is really not compelling. The only compelling scene was the battle of Waterloo, which I can't even trust, considering the reputation for inaccuracy that the movie gets.
