Robert the Bruce is gorgeously filmed by cinematographer John Garrett, making the most of every exquisitely lit crag of the Scottish countryside.

Directed by Richard Gray, "Robert the Bruce" feels like a producer's movie - a somber package, with elements all lined up that don't fully come to life.

It's easy to understand Macfayden's desire to reprise one of his most important screen roles... Despite this, however, Robert the Bruce doesn't represent a notable addition to the Braveheart legacy.

[Bruce's] joints may be stiffer than his resolve; but, in placing the warrior temporarily aside, Macfadyen and his director have helped us more clearly to see the man.

It's as if the filmmakers became convinced that without an obligatory cast of faceless moving pieces, it simply wouldn't count as historical fiction.

Unless you are a direct descendant of Robert the Bruce, or perhaps part of the Macfayden clan, you're better off letting this particular version of history get lost in the sands of time.
