Outlaw King has everything you need from a slightly corny historical epic: gory melee fighting, stirring music, and a heavily fictionalized romance. Chris Pine stars as medieval Scottish hero Robert the Bruce, an honorable man of the people who raises a guerrilla army to fight for Scotland's independence from England. The screenwriters glaze over Robert's personality and political acumen, but Pine is charming enough to pull off the basic warrior hero persona. While not quite on the same level as all-time greats like Gladiator, Outlaw King makes for a respectable addition to the genre.
