Ridley Scott returns to the historical genre in this medieval drama about a knight and a squire who fight to the death after one is accused of raping the other’s wife. Based on a true story of course. Matt Damon is surprisingly boring here. But Adam Driver is far better as the accused squire. Jodie Comer acts the best of all three. She’s sympathetic and compelling as a clearly capable woman who is restricted by the social and legal framework of her era. Ben Affleck is actually quite entertaining as a depraved and corrupt nobleman. There’s more emphasis on drama and dialogue instead of action. But there’s a few battles sprinkled throughout the story. The climactic duel is a tense and brutal fight scene.

The "Rashomon" perspective approach can get repetitive, but it also helps turn this medieval epic into something much smarter and richer than most films like it.
