Ripley's movie review

Usually when I watch British movies, I have trouble catching the odd word or phrase but in this one, I swear I missed half of the dialogue. The accents are thick so pay attention.

The story was fairly interesting and the acting was excellent. It was inspired by a true event so that helped too. I didn't think it was a great movie (probably because of the dialogue problem) but it was pretty good.

Two things you should know before watching: Sean Bean ain't Boromir or Sharpe in this one and Dr. Corday gets naked. Guess which one of those things made Ice say, "wow"?
