I've never been able to see it as anything but a poorly-cut load of twaddle, mashing up bits of Frazer and Gardner into a typicaly plastic pagan pick'n'mix.
Apart from Lee and Woodward the acting is more wooden than my kitchen table, while the music is a series of rather twee pastiches.
That said, I've not seen 'the director's cut', but I doubt that it could redeem the dreadful acting and the clunking script.
