This review is from: Gunpowder, Treason And Plot [DVD]  (DVD)
I bought this DVD because I thought that Robert Carlyle could not star in a bad film. I was wrong.
If you're just looking for a pleasant story, historically untrue, this product is for you. But if you want to see a good film and historically accurate do not buy it even if it is cheap.
The worst speech is between Mary and Bothwell: after making love she says:'We are both well, Bothwell'
I wanted to turn the TV off. I forced myself to finish it. In spite of everything Carlyle's performence is a good one.
