Review: I had high expectations with this movie since there was so much hype around it. Outlaw king is based on the true story of Robert the Bruce, the man who came after William Wallace and attempted to liberate Scotland from the tyranny of the English. He sacrificed his, home, his land and his family, in a heroic game to claim the Scottish throne.  

You know a good movie when it makes you feel something. Joy or pain, hate or love, this movie made you feel it all. Toward the end of the movie, I began to put myself in the shoes of The Bruce and start to think, what have you done? This choice that you made has killed half your family and imprisoned your wife and daughter. How will you get yourself out of this one. Well, as all good stories do, the tides turn and the ending leaves you hopeful. 

Loved this movie. It was packed full of action. Watch yourself though, there is nudity and sex and lots of gore, so its not for the faint of heart.
