The Reviews for The Last Duel (2021) 2160p

Great, original film that gets better and better the further into it you getReviewed bygrantssVote: 8/10

France, late-14th century. Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris were friends but a series of disagreements has soured their relationship. These animosities are stoked to deadly feud when de Carrouges's wife, Marguerite, accuses Le Gris of raping her. When all other avenues of justice are exhausted, de Carrouges takes the only option left to him: a duel to the death.

Great drama, directed by Ridley Scott and written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Ridley Scott's first film as a director was "The Duellists" (1977). Set during the Napoleonic era, two French army officers engage in a series of duels over a period of 15 years over a matter of honour. From the basic description I saw of The Last Duel I expected this to be a rehash of that so set my expectations accordingly.

Turns out The Last Duel is very different to The Duellists and thankfully so (not that The Duellists was bad - in fact it's a great film - but because a remake of it would be fairly boring). It starts conventionally enough: over a span of 16 years we see de Carrouges's view of the sequence of events. As this sets the scene for the remainder of the movie the de Carrouges part is mildly interesting but not overly engaging. At this point the film seemed like just another feud-leading-to-climactic-fight-scene.

What happens next elevates the film above that. We now see the events of the last 16 years from Le Gris's perspective. De Carrouges no longer looks like the saintly hero and Le Gris could be the one we're supposed to root for. The film is now looking like a Rashomon-type movie, i.e. Different perspectives, which one is correct?

However, it is the final part, Marguerite's view, that elevates the film to greatness. While Le Gris's view made the film intriguing it ends with any ambiguity to the course of events extinguished. This is where Scott, Damon and Affleck missed a trick - by making it clear what the truth is so soon they remove the mystery from the plot.

In the long run it doesn't matter too much as it is soon clear that the main theme is not of a feud, honour satisfied or how different people can have different perspectives of the same event but one of injustice. Marguerite's part is incredibly powerful and engaging and makes for compelling viewing.

This is all rounded off with a brutally realistic fight scene at the end. I can't think of a film that has shown medieval fighting depicted so accurately or graphically.

Ultimately a very well made, intelligent, highly original film with multiple layers and themes. Production values are excellent: every detail seems exactly like it would have been in the 14th century. All this makes for an incredibly realistic, historically accurate film.

Performances are spot on: Matt Damon (as de Carrouges), Adam Driver (as Le Gris) and Jodie Comer (as Marguerite) are excellent in the lead roles. Ben Affleck is almost unrecognisable as Count Pierre d'Alen?on and puts in a solid performance. (His appearance was a bit distracting though: he kept reminding me of Will Ferrell's character in Zoolander!).

Also interesting to see Alex Lawther (of "The End of the ... World" fame) as King Charles VI. He provides some of the lighter moments of the film as he often seems to find deadly serious, life-and-death moments quite amusing. King Charles VI was only 16-18 years old at the time so I thought this was to show that he was really just a boy, out of his depth. Turns out this wasn't just there for levity but was a realistic portrayal of King Charles VI's character as he was known to have suffered from mental illness and psychosis. Yet another example of the historical accuracy involved.

Powerful storytelling with an incredible finishReviewed byjtindahouseVote: 10/10

Typically historical films are not my thing. Rarely do I even give them a chance these days, as I find the likelihood of me enjoying one are that low. I heard someone explain the premise of 'The Last Duel' however and it had me captivated. I needed to see what a film like that would be like. I'm so glad I did. A film I wouldn't usually have given a chance to has turned out to be one of the best I've seen in 2021.

The movie is long at roughly two and a half hours, but it justifies every minute of it. I saw someone say that the last scene (which I will get to soon) justified watching the same story three times over. I very much hope they were being tongue in cheek, because the format of this movie is what made it so great. The brilliance of seeing how the exact same thing can be perceived completely differently by multiple people is extremely poignant. I also loved that the film wasn't in your face about it. It was just subtle enough to be present, but also noticeable enough to make you click to what you'd seen differently this time around. I feel like if you watched this film 100 times you'd pick up something new every time as well.

The impact all this build up has is that the final scene (or sequence to be more exact) in the film is one of the most tense and suspenseful I've seen put to screen in a long time. It's a brilliant finish to a brilliant film. I can't recommend this film highly enough. 10/10.

Incredible historical dramaReviewed bymasonsaulVote: 7/10

The way it tells it's story doesn't always work but The Last Duel is still an incredible historical drama that's intense, relevant and extremely harrowing and definitely one of Ridley Scott's best films.

Jodie Comer is phenomenal in the standout performance of the film. Matt Damon and Adam Driver are both reliably incredible and Ben Affleck is a definite scene stealer and really funny.

Ridley Scott's direction is excellent, it's extremely well filmed with a superb fight in the third act that's easily one of his best. The visual effects are extremely impressive and the music by Harry Gregson-Williams is fantastic.
