The humour is quirky and way over the top, but funny in a Month Python type of way. Diane Keaton is also pretty funny alongside Woody Allen who plots to kill Napoleon so Allen doesn't have to go into battle. Although the storyline is completely ridiculous, it's very well written and entertaining throughout. The womanising, fast talking Allen, isn't as annoying as he is in his latter projects, which is why this movie really does work. Basically, it's silly humour which people will either find completely stupid or a work of art for its originality and warped sense of humour. Watchable!Round-Up:This is some of Woody Allens best work, which I didn't find annoying or boring. It's a straight out comedy which doesn't focus on troubled relationships, like most of his work in his latter years. Although the movie looks dated, it's a timeless film which can be enjoyed nowadays, if you don't take the political subject personal. Diane Keaton played her role convincingly, even though the jokes were quite warped, but Allen always brings the best out of her. In all, if your a fan of Woody Allen's work then this has to be at the top of the pile, but if your not into his type of comedy then you will find this a bit too much. I'm yet to make a verdict of his work because I'm slowly going through his movies, but I did enjoy this film.Budget: $3millionWorldwide Gross: $20millionI recommend this movie to people who are into there Woody Allen movies about a womaniser who plots to kill Napoleon so he doesn't have to go to war. 7/10

A bitter-sweet film, that somewhat satisfying from time to time. It doesn't offer us any new, except the confused Lt. Carl Anderson (Richard Widmark) who's very often takes painkillers before he goes into battle. Halls of Montezuma was directed by Lewis Milestone, the director who gave us the legendary war epic All Quiet on the Western Front disappoint in a gerne that he seems to be good in.
