Napoleon Movie

In Ridley Scott’s latest movie, “Napoleon,” Joaquin Phoenix’s Napoleon Bonaparte is portrayed as a bit of a self-centered ruler with a confused mind. Vanessa Kirby’s Empress Josephine, on the other hand, comes off as the stronger and more confident half of the power-hungry couple, not holding back from poking fun at her powerful husband. The film has sparked mixed reactions, with some praising it as epic and enjoyable, while others, especially in France, aren’t too happy with the reimagined story. What do you think about Hollywood’s take on Napoleon’s life?

It seems like Ridley Scott’s “Napoleon” might be taking some creative liberties with history, but hey, that’s not new for Hollywood historicals, right? We’re used to them spicing things up for drama. Scott and screenwriter David Scarpa seem to be going all out in turning Napoleon’s life into a spectacular caricature, and some fans in the West are raising their eyebrows at this approach.
