Movie review: Black Death

Ok, so every now and again I like to watch a good plague movie.

So if that’s the scratch you’re trying to itch, then ‘Black Death’ is the movie for you. (pardon the pun)

This movie is a gritty medieval film set in England during the time of the bubonic plague with an expectantly high body count.

The story has deep themes of faith, religion, superstition and even love! that successfully play against a relatively high gore factor (by my standards anyway).

Given the atmospheric creepy factor and unapologetic violence, this movie is a borderline horror film, but with just enough substance to get you thinking.

There are a number of excellent performances, but I would have to say that Sean Bean steals the movie with his performance as the deeply religious murderer, Ulrich.

And the real shock of this film? Is the realisation that bubonic plague never really died out – with 362 cases reported in the United States since 1944!

  1. Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this
    issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Cheers!

  2. I believe everything published made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you added a little content?

    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good, but what if you added something that
    grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Little Miss Weasel
    Movie review: Black Death is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s
    home page and watch how they create post headlines to get viewers to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little
    bit more interesting.
