2018: the year of the fucking awesome tracking shots. ''Outlaw King' opens with a jaw dropping extended tracking shot that is in and out of rooms and features a sword fight! Wish more people could see it on a movie screen. Will stream on @netflix later this year. pic.twitter.com/W1zhwDYdMK— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) September 7, 2018
OUTLAW KING is a gucky, methodical, extremely unromantic retelling of the Scottish war of independence with lots of blood n’ mud n’ guts. I liked it a lot and am currently yelling at everyone with Aaron Taylor-Johnson-esque intensity— David Sims (@davidlsims) September 7, 2018
Outlaw King is exceptional. A stunning display of cinematography, sound mixing/editing, direction, performance and choreography. Every hit feels real, and it is far more realistic than Braveheart. Speaking of which, the action in this film makes Braveheart look like Power Rangers— William Caruana @ #Tiff18 (@DrVidGame) September 7, 2018
#OutlawKing is an expertly tendered Braveheart sequel, battle sequences perfectly executed, hobbled by: a) Chris Pine’s LatAm, not Scottish accent b) AT Johnson’s repeated primal blood soaked screams c) bash my brains in script that includes a spider as a phoenix analogy #TIFF18— J Don Birnam @ TIFF 2018 (@jdonbirnam) September 7, 2018
