[6.75/10] The Last Duel (2021)

The Last Duel (2021)

Quick Review: An unusual chivalry tale of conflict, sacrifice, cruelty, but above all a battle of egos, told from various perspectives in a repetitive, but skillful plot structure, "The Last Duel" may be a bit draggy, cold, and at times hard to keep track of, but its medieval imagery is imposing in its grittiness and somber tone, the action scenes -- savage and deftly-staged, notably the ultraviolent final duel, and the acting rather brilliant, with Comer dominating the screen, and Affleck standing out.

I saw it advertised and thought it looked a bit drab.

Ah, it's not perfect, but the production values are top-notch and the cast is pretty solid.

Can anybody help me to understand which version was right? The victim? The accused? Or the Main lead?

I believe it's open to interpretation.
