[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.

5 stars out of 5 -- There are obvious resonances with today's religious tensions, but this is a story of much more, and it is handled superbly.

[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: 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

...It is not only a spectacle the likes of which we may never see again, but also brings an elegance to the form not much seen before its release, either...
