Grim and...eh grim

Not the worst film I've seen this year, and Sean Bean is excellent as always.
History buffs will be disappointed because it strays into fiction too much, and it doesn't really deliver on the entertainment front either.
I gotta admit I found the sadistic gore offputting, so you horror fans out there might like it a bit more.

I thought it was terrible, it took me a few attepmts to watch it as i thought the trailer was good and the plot would get better but it didnt. I wouldnt bother- it strayed really far from The Black Death idea anyway

Really enjoyed this atmospheric medieval tale. Well acted, Sean Bean was just made for these roles, and very well shot. The storyline isn't the most exciting but it will keep you interested till the end.
Not the worst but not far off.

Expected alot more all things considered, plot was weak and the acting wasnt much better. Sooner or later film makers are gonna realise the whole shaky camera effect just dosent work well in a movie.
Back to Black
