Good Film
22 September 2020 | by thekingsdomSee all my reviews

This is a bit slow but I really enjoyed it. You're under attack, do you fight to the death or concede, live and lose your pride? This is the decision the king and his ministers must decide. I thought this was filmed very well, acted very well, written well and the tension throughout the film kept me hooked to the end. It is a bit slow, 20 minutes too long but still very good. 7/10
