Historical action adventure set in the Middle Ages. In 1215 England, King John (Paul Giamatti) has reluctantly signed the Magna Carta treaty, but quickly reneges on the promises drawn up in the charter and leads an army to the southern coast of England to take down the rebel barons who forced him to sign it. A courageous group of Knights Templar must now face off against King John's army as they place Rochester Castle under siege. Brian Cox, Jason Flemyng, James Purefoy and Charles Dance co-star.
It is the year 1215 and the rebel barons of England have forced their despised King John to put his royal seal to the Magna Carta, a noble, seminal document that upheld the rights of free-men. Yet within months of pledging himself to the great charter, the King reneged on his word and assembled a mercenary army on the south coast of England with the intention of bringing the barons and the country back under his tyrannical rule. Barring his way stood the mighty Rochester castle, a place that would become the symbol of the rebel's momentous struggle for justice and freedom.

Based arounf King John's exploits and the Lords of the time forcing the signing of the Magna Carta this focus' on James Purefoys Knight Templar as he wrestles with his conscience and beliefs after time spent on the Crusades.
The film is gritty, visceral and honest in it's approach to war and battle.
Some beautiful vista shots contrast brilliantly with the dirt and poverty of life for the everyday man.
I was gripped from start to finish.
King John is found out by one of the returning Crusader Templars played by James Purefoy (Solomon Kane), he teams up with the Baron of Albany played by the ever good value Brian Cox. They realise that in order to stop King John they will need to hold the strategically important castle of Rochester. King John has enlisted the help of the Danes, with the promise that they will be allowed to carry on worshiping their Pagan Gods and not have the Pope stuff Christianity down their throats. I suspect a bit of gold may have been promised too. They then set about taking the castle, but Albany has rounded up a small band of killing machines that like nothing more than a big ruck. They include Mackenzie Crook making another change of direction from his more sombre roles as in `The Office'.
Rochester is owned by Derek Jacobi playing Cornhill, and he is married to Kate Mara (Isabel), she is somewhat neglected in the bed chamber department and soon finds herself drawn to the mysterious and pious Templar. You just know stuff is going to happen. Meanwhile the siege begins, with trebuchets', siege towers and scaling ladders, plus loads of Viking nutters. They are ridiculously outnumbered but believe that help is on the way from France and so have to hold out.Read more ›
And the acting????
James Purefoy's characrter is dower and uninteresting not to mention that extremely irritating voice that can hardly be understood.
Paul Giamatti's King John is a farce and just a comedic character (Alan Rickman is much better and funnier)
I really thought that Brian Cox was a more class actor than to play in this half cocked, low budget attempt at a film.
This film completely degrades the wonderful history that we have in Britain and the attempt to make it tongue in cheek, like "The Magnificent Seven" was a complete failure.
The worst part is I actuall paid to rent it.
If it had been on Prime, I may have given it 2 stars.

This is a truly awful movie. The directing is incredibly poor, and the writing is worse.
I never mind that a movie has a lower budget than the blockbusters. Read more
