Pretty good medieval action drama flick

I am compelled to write my first review after 4 years on IMDb due to the bad reviews by critics. First off, I completely enjoyed this movie. I loved the initial setting which took about an hour which others complained to be too long but I felt that laid a good foundation for the plot to continue.

The second half could've been better but I'm not complaining. This was much better than Ridley Scott's Robin Hood when compared to a medieval story. What lacked in this movie was more character development and overall depth to both the story and characters. The details of storming the castle are also just gone through quickly without any importance. I feel like this could've been a 3 hour saga of excellent medieval story had the director gone with it. A fully developed story with multidimensional characters would've been perfect. Both Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman gave wonderful performances and as someone who loves their movies I felt satisfied just to see them in these particular roles.

Overall, don't miss this one just because of some harsh critic ratings. I felt entertained and this is one movie which did not let me down at all when compared with other medieval stories of the past few years.

A Movie Worth Watching

I just watched this film and, honestly, I find the single review posted here to be wholly ludicrous - one star indeed.

There's a sizable group of talented actors and actresses in this film that give some very respectable performances. If fighting scenes are all you look for in a film like this then yes, it might feel boring to you. But for most others you'll find a well executed story that portrays honor in a time when honor was everything.

Production was accurate, continuity is good, and the story keeps you interested. It's not, by any means, a fresh story line - but there's a reason it's an old standard. Casting was well done, and Clive Owen, as always, does not disappoint. In fact, the entire cast did a commendable job and that can not be said for the majority of contemporary films.

So, to wrap up; if you're strictly an "action" viewer, you may not enjoy this movie. But if you enjoy a good story that isn't entirely predictable, you might just enjoy this film.

Last Knights does not get the respect it deserves

Last Knights is a unique and interesting remake of the classic 47 Ronin. Set in medieval England instead of Japan enables a retelling more attractive to westerners as it takes Japanese honor codes and draws the parallels with everything we love in an Arthurian legend. The story is packed with both action and thoughtful storytelling that holds interest throughout.

In my opinion, the poor reviews come from two places. First, people who want pure action are turned off by the lull in the middle where the endgame is prepared. They are simply bored waiting for the next sword fight and have no care for the story at all.

The second, less frequent, are those who appreciate the story but object to the graphic honesty of the martial scenes.

If you are ready for both, if you want to be inspired by not just physical prowess but devotion to something or someone greater than yourself, enjoy Last Knights as did I.
