Great history, writing only OK
19 September 2018 | by amywolfe11325See all my reviews

Saw this at TIFF and it was definitely a fun and interesting movie. As a history buff the costumes and overall historical accuracy was great. However the scenes moved incredibly quickly, and the writing didn't have a lot of heart. Bruce is all the good guy and the king and prince of wales pure evil. The characters are so much more complex in real life and adding that to the script could have made it fall a little less flat. Again it was fun, but not exactly an Oscar film.
