"I thought this film was excellent. I was watching it on the small screen so didn't even notice the bad CGI. As to the 'ugly digital photography', I think it was intentional. The film is not supposed to show rosy looking vistas. Medieval England was ugly as balls! Anyway, the film has great action with people getting bits chopped off every five minutes. Purefoy was good in the central role and there was also a good supporting turn from Brian Cox (the busiest man in Hollywood). If you liked Kingdom of Heaven, Braveheart or Rob Roy you should like this too."
