Netflix’s latest original film “Outlaw King” drops Friday. Unfortunately, it’s not great despite its massive potential.
From critically-acclaimed “Hell or High Water” director David Mackenzie, “Outlaw King” has an incredible cast including Chris Pine, Florence Pugh, Aaron Taylor Johnson, James Cosmo, Stephen Dillane, and a very cute dog. The movie tells the true story of Robert the Bruce (Pine), a Scottish king in the 14th century who launched a guerrilla war against the British.
But even for people like me who thrive on royal historical dramas, it’s really boring, especially considering all of the talent involved in every aspect of the project.
Why you should watch: The full-frontal scene people have been talking about for months.
Ever since “Outlaw King” premiered at Toronto Film Festival in November, people have been talking about Chris Pine’s full-frontal scene. And while the scene is not as graphic as some may have hoped, it’s quite refreshing to see Pine go fully nude in a steamy but short sex scene. It’s also notable to see such a huge star do male nudity, which has historically been limited to women.
Pine, who’s many people’s favorite of Hollywood’s Chrises, has been a good sport about the whole thing, even playing along with it. This week, Pine said that even though you cannot see his penis completely in “Outlaw King,” he promises that his “can match” Michael Fassbender’s. Fassbender famously went fully nude for a famous scenes in 2011’s “Shame.”
