OOPS! The best part of the movie is the clip.
Colin Farrell stars as Captain John Smith
The movie credits say it was based on historical events. NOT!
It is claimed to be an adventure based on the founding of the Jamestown Settlement in 1607. NOT!
This movie “The New World” turns out to be a 2 hour soap opera focusing on Colin Farrell who appears to be under the influence of drugs the whole movie. He has few lines and seems like he would rather be somewhere else. Rather than acting the part of the strong character of Captain John Smith, the savior of the colony, Farrell is listless, often gazing off in the distance or at the ground. No history is represented correctly. That it claimed to be based on historical events is a distortion. It is as if when making this movie, historical events were put into a hat and of the very few withdrawn to be used, they were then placed in random order, and then distorted. This is one of the the worst movies ever. Even Disney’s earlier movies of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas, with it’s corruption of Jamestown history, did it better!
Come to Jamestown with me as your guide and hear the true story. The true story is awesome.
Hopefully one day, someone will tell the true story in a movie. The true story will be better than anything that could be fabricated.
