Does not rise to the classic novel, nor to an action history flick like Braveheart,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas [DVD] (DVD)
The Directors overdoes the minimalistic approach, so that it does look like a low budged feature.
The action scenes come across as too tame, specially since we have been spoiled by productions like 'The Tudors', 'The Borgias',
'Spartacus', 'Pillars of the earth' and so on. This a 2013 production looks more like a 1970'sh film.
Also the film has the feel of being too sanitized, and too much aligned with today's political correctness.
If you like to see good movies about the the Great Peasant uprising of 1525, watch (available on Amazon.ca)

2.) Koenig der letzten Tage (Christoph Waltz) directed by Tom Toelle 1991
