It's one bad apple.
It's too labored and ponderous to qualify as a so-bad-it's-good amusement. Original Sin is merely an old-fashioned bore.
Aspires to blasphemy but achieves only banality.
Lavish and florid, the corny venture falls into so-bad-it's-good territory.
Jolie and Banderas are two hot actors, in many senses of the word, and their scenes together have a lewd excitement.
The movie is not intended to be subtle. It is sweaty, candle-lit melodrama, joyously trashy, and its photography wallows in sumptuous decadence.
