Netflix Instant - 2010's "Black Death" (Like or Dislike)

Sean Bean stars in this historically rooted horror-thriller as Ulric, a church-appointed knight in the age of the Bubonic Plague's first wave who's tasked with investigating rumors of a woman (Carice van Houten) who can bring the dead back to life. A young monk (Eddie Redmayne) named Osmund is aiding Ulric on his quest to root out the necromancer -- and to determine whether or not she has ties to Satan.

My Thoughts: Religion ade, this is a great thriller. The fight scenes are exciting and the acting is great. The story is very interesting and I enjoyed the few surpring twists along the way. Although the film is based around religion, I felt it was more about Osmund's struggle with love, betraying God, and where his grief took him. Its dark, depresng, and bloody. It was a much better film than I had expected it to be.

Hmm, I may have to check this out. Sean Bean + a sword typically adds up to a good film either way!

I loved this movie. I had read a lot of people saying it wasn't very good, but I thought it was excellent. And I am a huge Sean Bean fan anyway. I loved him in the remake of the Hitcher.

Hated it..Thought it was going to be a lot cooler..And there was too much preaching about how "religion is bad"..I hate that kind of preaching just as much as I hate religious preaching.
