Seems to be a lot of authentic kit used in this trailer.....looks pretty good, just need some sub titles.

This might be the time to mention that Braveheart made use of Reenactment societies.

Watched Outlaw/King last night. What an improvement on Brave Heart! This time round the Scots actually looked like medieval Scots, no woad and no kilts, but plenty of padded linen protection (aqueton?). Some of the nobles sported mail and surcoats, not to mention some helmets and flat iron shields. Bruce’s tactics using pits. stakes and the natural morass of the landscape was really well shown. I did notice that Tony Pollard was a historical consultant. Maybe slightly slower beginning than Brave Heart but a much more measured film with a superb finale of the Battle of Loudon Hill. Well worth a watch especially for those interested in medieval warfare.

Thanks for that review, Leman. The wife and I were debating whether to watch the thing (there is only so much time available), think we will now give it a go.

Me and the Wife watched the captain last night, we thoroughly enjoyed the film but couldn't understand his lack of compassion for his fellow deserters considering he was one

Take care

Wife and I watched the Outlaw King last night and both enjoyed it. With 45 minutes left I wondered aloud to my wife how they were going to get all the way to Bannockburn. But then saw what they did. Clever (and within budget)! Like the various nods to spiders and their webs.
In discussing its look compared to Braveheart my wife noted that only similarity seemed to be that the English don’t come off very well!  Smiley
