    ★★★★★

    Luke Evans brooding shirtless, brooding wearing a black outfit, brooding while wearing armor, going to war to protect his family, brooding at night, brooding over his family, turning into bats, turning into bats and killing his enemies.

    Every time I watch this movie, I pick up something new in the dialogue that is absolutely horrible to my ears yet completely hilarious. I would love to get paid to listen to Peter Capaldi's imaginative insults for they are much more creative than anything I could never dream of uttering myself. If you're a fan of satirical documentaries such as The Office with far more adult-language than you could ever dream, this is for you. Sometimes you just need to watch people lose their sanity over the insanity of politics and running the world from inside the government.
