Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ridley Scott’s ‘NAPOLEON’ currently has 68% tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes.


Sir Ridley Scott needs no introduction. The mastermind behind cinematic staples like Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, and Gladiator has been celebrated for decades. However, there’s no denying the fact that this late era of his filmmaking career has been his most divisive yet. From his two ambitious Alien prequels, Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, to his glossy biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings to his Oscar-nominated sci-fi drama The Martian, Scott has continued to swing for the fences without a single care for public opinion. Also, it was only two years ago that he released two widely different projects, House of Gucci and The Last Duel. Again, say what you will about those movies but Scott releasing both in his mid-80s, in the same year no less, is extremely impressive. His latest, a historical biopic on the life of French Emporer Napoleon Bonaparte, is nothing short of remarkable.

Napoleon is arguably Ridley Scott’s most well-rounded work in years, nailing the grand spectacle of a historical epic with the right blend of addictive melodrama that you would expect from its star-studded cast. This film will most definitely have lots of detractors, but just like how people criticized the very much intended campiness of House of Gucci or Ben Affleck’s humorous role in The Last Duel, there will be no winning them over. As the popular saying goes, “They didn’t get it.” One of the best aspects of Scott’s Napoleon is how it can go from the unrelenting bloodshed of the battlefield to not taking itself so seriously when diving into the insecurities and god complex of our titular emperor. It’s the kind of historical drama that knows how to deliver cinematic visuals and brutal action while also having enough fun exploring its main subject, regardless of historical accuracy.
