Subject: Review: Bloodthirsty & lusty Scots musical movie
On Netflix now... "Outlaw King"

It's sort of is but isn't but could be even if it isn't a sequel to "Brave Heart"..

Period style folkie music dominates almost every scene,
the End credits list of singers and musicians is of epic proportions...

An In-Depth Look at the On-Set Music for David Mackenzie's 'Outlaw King'

If you like Game of Thrones, and Braveheart...

2 hours of stirring rampant Scots nationalism..
I'm a many generations born and bred English west country bloke,
but watching this movie made even me feel proud to be Scottish.. blimey...???

My only complaint is it looks like a 4 hour movie brutally edited down to 2 hours of rushed narrative pacing..

Which apparently is what actually happend in the cutting room...
