A vivid and muscular, if less than fully startling, account of lust, savagery, revenge, betrayal and assorted other dark doings in the Middle Ages.

It's hamstrung by leaden dialogue and the motley international cast - Python and the Grail are never that far away - but it's admirably unsentimental and by no means stupid.

Delivers exactly what the title promises (and then some), as Dutch director Verhoeven spares no gory or raunchy details in his vigorous recreation of medieval Europe.

The movie just doesn't live up to the helmer's glorious sense of screen madness, more consumed with establishing ugliness than embracing the potential for a ripping medieval quest.
