The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy

Outlaw King.

When most people hear the name Robert the Bruce they think of the man that betrays William Wallace in Braveheart, yet there is so much more to this man's story and thankfully David Mackenzie, director of Hell or High Water, has brought The Bruce to the forefront in his latest collaboration with Chris Pine.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Lee Hutchison to talk about Outlaw King. We discuss The Bruce getting his due, making the decision, sacrifice, church support, not a tyrant, the cast, production, if the movie is long enough and our ratings.
