What to know

critics consensus

It's inspired by epic real-life events, but rich cinematography and the best of intentions aren't enough to carry Robert the Bruce past its leaden pace and bland storytelling. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Robert the Bruce

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (29)

  • [With] accents that range from passable to comically bad...

    May 27, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • I liked it. I didn't think it completely worked, but I appreciated what it was trying to do.

    April 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Directed by Richard Gray, "Robert the Bruce" feels like a producer's movie - a somber package, with elements all lined up that don't fully come to life.

    April 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Robert the Bruce is gorgeously filmed by cinematographer John Garrett, making the most of every exquisitely lit crag of the Scottish countryside.

    April 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's easy to understand Macfayden's desire to reprise one of his most important screen roles... Despite this, however, Robert the Bruce doesn't represent a notable addition to the Braveheart legacy.

    April 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • [Bruce's] joints may be stiffer than his resolve; but, in placing the warrior temporarily aside, Macfadyen and his director have helped us more clearly to see the man.
