Outlaw / King

In 1304, the Scottish nobility, including Robert the Bruce (Chris Pine), surrender to the English king Edward I (Stephen Dillane)ā€¦ but circumstances soon force them to rise up once again. It is impossible to watch this movie and not make comparisons with Braveheart (1995),Ā as Robert the Bruce was a character in that story and this film has a similar look and feel, following that template right up to a climactic battle against the English. Still, engaging enough and handsomely produced, with a tracking shot that serves as a perfect introduction to the characters, milieu and conflicts.

2018-Britain-U.S. 121 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ David Mackenzie. Cast: Chris Pine (Robert the Bruce), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (James Douglas), Florence Pugh (Elizabeth de Burgh), Billy Howle, Tony Curran, Lorne MacFadyenā€¦ Stephen Dillane.

Trivia: First shown at the Toronto film festival, then released on Netflix. Ben Foster was allegedly first cast in the film.
