Nice epic movie with a great theme, and great characters. Based on a true story! Probably as accurate as could be. It's the fight against slavery by a minority at first. Of course, this is ra ra english story to pretend they were the first. Well nowaday, we have the internet and ususal english bull don't pass muster. The timeline for abolishing slavery is not clear cut. They abolish one bit, the slaverers continue another way. France did abolish slavery first during the revolution, but Napoleon reintroduce it 8 years later. The english win against the french did not reabolish it. The french redid it later and the timeline is not quite in favor of the english on this front. In any case, the film is a nice cleaned-up english version that shows a nice evolution of mentality, even amongst barbarians englishes, ever the best at bombing and suffering, and tooting their horn. Haha! Enjoy!
