Bodice Ripping
6 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Interesting concept, great scenery, nice sets, excellent technical merit. What more should one expect? Answer: A believable story line, good pacing and direction, intelligent social context reflecting values of the 18th century rather than that of the 21st.

As to bodice ripping and dialogue like "I'll thank ye to take yer hands off me wife," this is adolescent storytelling at its most laughable. It is a cartoon brought to life. In spite of an occasional stab at looking into the depth of a villain, it melts into a goo of modern political correctness. Quiet scenes are invariably interrupted by gratuitous violence in which...yes...bodices are actually ripped. Not just once, but at every hint of a damsel in distress. The villain leers and the audience recoils. Instead of simply shooting the rascal when he gets the chance, the hero makes some incomprehensible statement about honor, letting the guy go to abduct his wife yet again (no doubt ripping her bodice in the process). And so on.

Update 10 Jul 2016: Watched to the bitter end. Still like the sets, costumes, etc., but hated the needless sensational and soapy bits.
