      Robert the Bruce

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It's inspired by epic real-life events, but rich cinematography and the best of intentions aren't enough to carry Robert the Bruce past its leaden pace and bland storytelling.

      Mutantti M Good acting, great music, got me somewhat invested in the characters, made me feel a bit. Too long, occasionally dragging, veery light on the action department, and would like little more Bruce on the screen. Onewatchmovie 6+/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Nathan C What a sad, slow, depressing movie. And you don't even get to see Bruce reclaim the throne. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review Thomas S It is a slow film. But a deeply moving story. As to should you watch it? If you love Andor, yes. If you love Rise of Skywalker , no. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Y C Robert the Bruce is severely lacking in Bruce. Doesn't have a lot of Robert in it either. Could be called story about family Robert the Bruce once looked at. What Robert the Bruce does have is lots of strong independent medieval women, interior shots of stone buildings and beautiful snowy landscapes. The film should have been called 'single mother finds man in snow' Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/01/23 Full Review john f Don't waste your time. Rent Braveheart. This movie was so boring. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/19/23 Full Review Aidan T God this was such a bore. I'd rather watch a feckless drunk weave his way round Edinbrugh Castle. This was 'Care Bears' compared with 'Braveheart'. I see it only made £100k in the UK out of theatregoers. Like me they must have felt that was two hours poorly spent... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      James Berardinelli ReelViews [With] accents that range from passable to comically bad... Rated: 2/5 May 27, 2020 Full Review Angie Han FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I liked it. I didn't think it completely worked, but I appreciated what it was trying to do. Apr 24, 2020 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Variety 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. Apr 24, 2020 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com ...while the film runs too long, its meditates in a compelling way on how the Bruce found his sense of purpose in the needs of his own people.... Rated: 4/5 Jan 23, 2024 Full Review James Hanton Outtake Mag It is not quite as stirring as it wants to be, but Gray's picture brims with passion and is still as accomplished as any historical drama worth watching. Rated: 4 / 5 Jul 28, 2020 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Robert the Bruce can certainly find an audience with people who feel compelled to check out any movie related to Scottish history. For everyone else, the film is worth watching if you don't mind seeing an inferior spinoff to Braveheart. Jul 16, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
