Concrete Plans and Fall of a Kingdom

Tried to watch Fall of a Kingdom last night but was put off by dull, characterless acting and an even duller script which possibly gave the actors little with which to work. I'm sorry, but a good historical drama needs more than choreographed sword fights to make it interesting. It needs characters who have a semblance of being real people and not cliched cardboard cutouts. Gave up after half and hour to watch a rather brutal if better acted British film called Concrete Plans. I wouldn't call this a classic movie but it did keep me enthralled - and appalled!
