Shakey history - but a fun thriller

You thought BRAVEHEART played fast and loose with history? You ain't seen nothing yet! This is very well made but the research most likely consisted of five minutes on a sub-Wikipedia site... if there was any! Anyway, as a silly fantasy thriller - seen on its own terms - it's great fun. But for anyone who knows anything about um... dates and history and stuff you can actually proove, this is about as realistic as William Shatner's hairpiece! Roland Emmerich may be the king of disaster, but here his CGI cred's go into creating a beautiful vision of Shakespeare's London. So, two stars for the fun - but please, don't think this is the JFK of Shakespeare conspiracy tales! It's more like the MR BEAN version!
