"We went to see the film as a family. We loved the Elizabeth films and others of the same genre. However, this one was disappointing.
It was dull. The costumes and settings, though were fantastic. I said on the way home that it's either a huge credit to the costume and set department or telling of the script and acting that my mind kept wondering from what what being played out on screen to the detail of the scenery and dress.
It was OK, but I'd have been happier curled up on the sofa watching it as a TV dramatisation than I was paying for tickets to the cinema and taking the effort to leave the comfort of the sofa.
Far from great, but not terrible either. Wait until it's out on TV is my advice."
