This, the second of 1992's 500th anniversary Christopher Columbus films adheres to the historical facts of Columbus's possessed quest to discover the New World, and his solicitation of Queen Isabella to gain the necessary funding. Despite travelogue-quality footage replete with beautiful scenery of Caribbean islands and a massive cast, this film tends to plod along with too predictable a plot and a mis-cast Columbus. Depardieu a very capable French actor speaking English and playing an Italian -- becomes perhaps the movie's bright spot as he laughably struggles with line after line. Michael Wincott puts forth a worthy performance as a nasty Spanish nobleman whose mistreatment of the natives results in an open rebellion.
