Storyline

This is a great historical documentary about tha Battle of Bannockburn. It is not for the faint hearted as it pulls no punches. It will light the fire in the belly of anyone who Scottish or of Scottish descent. Beautiful work and God bless the Canadians.

Informative, but, jeez, talk about ridiculously made!
11 October 2018 | by eclectic_girl77See all my reviews

What could've been an interesting documentary about King Robert the Bruce and Bannock Burn was utterly spoiled by cheesy CGI and frenetic editing more suited for the WWE/YouTube/fruit fly attention span-length generation. Blood-spattered-sword scene wipes every 2 seconds, blink-and-they're-gone maps of troop maneuvers, dramatic music no matter what was actually happening (not to mention terrible foley work: cantering sounds for a walking horse, out-of-sync footsteps, etc.), and other amateur filmmaking stunts ruin what could be a very informative program. Comparisons have been made to the film "300" but, honestly, between the two, "300" is practically restrained and demure. I wonder if the eminent talking heads the producers hired were embarrassed upon seeing the final product they'd joined - I know I would've been!

Of course, it doesn't help that many of the viewing audience are ignorant Neanderthals, as displayed by the comments elsewhere concerning Lynette Nusbacher, a well-respected historian and military expert who just also happens to be transgender. Oh, and she may speak like a prim school marm, but as an American in Scotland, it's unconsciously done on Lynette's part in order to tone down her broad accent and to better blend in, I'm sure. Trust me: as someone who's been there and done exactly that so as not to stand out with my braying American accent, I know how it goes.
