Average Flynn swashbuckler
26 September 1999 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Errol Flynn is Edward, the Black Prince, appointed Duke of Aquitaine to protect the English gains in the 100 Years War.

The Count of Aquitaine doesn't accept English rule, and so we need to have a lot of scenes of knights in armour battling it out to decide who wins, and who gets the girl. (No prizes for guessing who.)

It's colourful enough, and the swashes get vigorously buckled at regular intervals, but you've probably seen it all before.
