Shadows on the Wall
Dec 12, 2007
[A] feast of visual detail....The film overflows with deep-focus vistas, towering sets, densely crowded battle sequences and the imposing presence of two remarkable physical specimens, Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren.

Not many filmmakers could make the transition to epic filmmaking with all their signature touches intact; Anthony Mann more or less succeeds. Full Review
Combustible Celluloid
Jan 18, 2008
[I]t's clear that the director relished working in 70mm and having such rich resources at his disposal. As a spectacle, it's muscular and more dynamic than most.

Rating: A- -- Starring Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren at their prime, Anthony Mann's grand historical epic is still much admired by viewers and directors. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- To say that El Cid is the most intelligent of the elephantine epics of the early '60s is to damn it with faint praise. Full Review
