For the first time since ‘Braveheart’ came to our screens, another movie has filled us Scots with much pride and nationalism for our country. 

The Outlaw King on Netflix embodies the true passion of Scotland’s history in fighting for our independence.   

Freedom and Scotland are the first words to come to mind when watching this film. 

Starring Chris Pine as Robert The Bruce, a 14th-century King of Scots, the plot follows his plight into taking up arms with his fellow countrymen, to rage war against the larger English army to win back their land. To win Scotland's freedom.  

Chris along with co-stars; Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh, Billy Howle, Tony Curran, Callan Mulvey and Stephen Dillane, juggle emotions of power, fear, love, devastation and determinationThey along with the script do a fine job in representing what it truly means to be Scottish. This film directly shows our countries tragic and gory past. 

Through mutilation, hand to hand combat and untimely deaths the hopelessness of what faces Bruce is on full display throughout this historic film. But by the end of its story, nothing but hope and pride in one's country is left in everyone's mind. 

Overall the film The Outlaw King has earned its place in Scottish history right next to Braveheart, instilling passion in generations to come.
