6 July 2002 | by AZINDNSee all my reviews

Made for tv production typical for the time, The Bastard cast then hot-babe Andrew Stevens in the title role. With a cast of too many name Hollywood actors, this 18th century costume drama is based on The Kent Chronicles. Although heaving bodices supplied by buxom beauty, Olivia Hussey and chubby-face Kim Cattral of Sex and the City fame provide brief distraction, the story is too shallow and all too predictable. Andrew Stevens, in the lead role gives his standard wooden performance begging one to wonder why a sequel was ever produced.
