3 out of 5 best Chrises.

Often historical movies can feel dry and lose us in the story, but with Outlaw King, it works in terms of telling a story to a modern audience, but the tone ends up being all over the place.

Every day, we seem to mock the president more and more (no matter how often we think there's no way to top the most recent incident), and while humor can help keep our spirits up, it does grow tiring. We shouldn't be able to mock the leader of our country so easily, and we shouldn't want to mock that person this badly.
