Times (UK) Staff Times (UK) The film fails because it is melodramatic in conception, but does not have the courage to be unashamedly melodramatic in execution. Jul 31, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member An average swashbuckling movie surrounding events during the English Civil War. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining swashbuckler with George Baker as a Royalist trying to smuggle Charless II out of England after the Battle of Worcester. Lots of familiar faces for British audiences - Patrick Troughton, George Woodbridge and John Le Mesurier as Cromwell. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Great epic. classic drama, this is how classics were made, Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Really a fifties British version of a western. Good guys and bad guys are blatantly obvious, swash-buckling takes the place of gunfights and there's the inevitable girl to get in the way. Strictly Saturday morning faire.
