Black Death [DVD] [2010] <b>DVD</b> ~ Sean Bean
Black Death [DVD] [2010] DVD ~ Sean Bean
Surprising - I expected a B movie with Mr Bean hamming it in usual style (he must be 'the actor' that Directors always turn to for 'gritty historical macho') The reality is actually a pretty good movie. The dialogue is for a change quite fun - and the characters even get a bit of development. That French football geezer is especially good.

Why not the full 5 stars? well - it is a bit derivative. The monk is straight out of the name of the rose, and the witchy women a tad implausible. Unfortunately the director has employed the usual costume makers etc that do the rubbish Saturday afternoon ivanhoe + dragon etc / mock medieval films.

Overall, suitably repulsive.
