I'd not heard much about this movie but saw a trailer prior to release. Liked the trailer and decided to buy on Blu-ray and was not disappointed. Not sure if British or US made movie but thoroughly enjoyable, was great to watch with little expectation and for the film to turn out to be very good. Great lead character, well acted by all cast and settings very good. For a fantasy film it is actually believable and the fight scenes are very good. Now sitting proudly amongst my film collection and I would recommend this movie.
