Movie Reviews

Wow! I bet Harrison Ford regrest this one! :oP
(1 out of 5 stars)

"What a sad disappointment! :( This movie is a choppy, poorly edited made-for-TV movie with a terrible video and audio transfer, and even more disturbing, it seemed to end abruptly with no resolution to any of the various storylines in the movie.I have not read the book that this movie is based one, but it just has to be better than this sorry adaption! :( Despite the extremely low price of this DVD, it is still a complete waste of money, not to mention time! :o{ Characters you never get to know with motives you never understand, storylines that are never resolved, and an amazingly anticlimatic ending all add up to a big "0" for this DVD! :o(Oh, and just in case you're a Harrison Ford fan, his part in this movie is so small that he is listed in the credits under "supporting players." "Dynasty" is *not* a Harrison Ford movie!! James Michner's Dynasty is the kind of made-for-TV movie that gives made-for-TV movies a bad name! :oP"
Where's part two?
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I pretty much agree with the previous review. Typical of a mid to late 70's era TV mini-series. The video and audio is of 70's quality, the DVD is without subtitles or closed captioning.
The direction is similar to Roots, or The Blue and the Gray type mini series, but Dynasty ends abruptly, without story resolution. Without sequels it makes no sense. This "part 1" develops the characters well, and provides a good foundation for plots, but it leaves you hanging. Like WTF???
Sarah Miles gives an outstanding performance and carries the story, which is why I give it two stars. The other performances are somewhat "choppy" as the other previewer noted.
As is... it is quite a mess."
Could Have Been Better.

"Deception, envy, and greed divide the Blackwoods, a powerful Ohio family. Whose land-rich empire grows to dramatic proportions despite a soap opera of sibling rivalry. The script could have had more depth, and it ended in a flat, incomplete manner. Far too many loose ends. Despite this flaw I give it 3 stars because Sarah Miles and Stacey Keach were good."
