Synopsis:
The Peninsular War: 27th September 1810, General Wellington (John Malkovich) leading an Anglo-Portuguese army, defeated the French troops of Marshal Massena in the Serra do Bugaco. Despite the victory, the Portuguese and British are forced to retreat from the enemy's numerical superiority, in order to attract them to Torres Vedras, where Wellington has built fortified lines. Wellington organizes the evacuation of the entire territory between the battlefield and the lines of Torres Vedras, a gigantic burned land operation, which prevents the French from collecting supplies.
The film follows the journey through hills, valleys, between ruined villages, charred forests and devastated crops to the lines of Torres where Wellington and his troops stage the final battle.

Sheer garbage - Wellington review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2020

This is a complete mess of a film, mostly featuring poorly directed Portuguese actors failing to breathe life into a series of static interior scenes. Although the DVD blurb fails to mention it, most of the dialogue is in Portuguese and French. The setting is the war against Napoleon but there are zero action scenes. Wellington appears only fleetingly as a grumpy man in a tent, giving John Malkovich no chance of giving the man any character. It’s hard to believe how bad this is. It’s dull, it’s dour, it’s a pain to watch.

The film’s actual title is Lines of Wellington. No, me neither. Surely the whole miserable project falls foul of the Trades Description Act.
