In 1221 fighting rages on & off across the boarders of Scotland & England. In one boarder Castle it falls to inexperienced Master Hubert & a few hired swords to repel an angry raiding party of Celts, fueled by getting revenge for the death of their Celtic Chieftain leader's only son.

Ironclad 2 is a sequel set some 5 years after the events in Ironclad , where attentions have turned to the hostilities in the North between Scotland & England, as the Scots raid English lands in retribution for English atrocities committed against them.

Essentially Ironclad 2 is pretty much more of the same blood & guts violent siege action, but this time on an even lower budget & no big star names attached to it. The story is a pretty formulaic tale of revenge with no history lessons being taught here unlike the first offering, instead concentrating on life lessons of a few souls that find themselves in dire circumstances. Which itself is enough to keep you somewhat interested when things move briefly away from the action. The young Master (Tom Rhys Harries) coming to power too soon & getting an experience in battle and heartbreak. To the returning cousin (Tom Austen), who happens to be the character Guy the Squire from the first film , whose World experience exposure has left him loyal to coin rather than his own families honor, whose return to his childhood home sparks some soul searching & past romantic ties (Roxanne McKee). But ultimately they're is no hero that stands out to truly root for against a somewhat decent if generic baddie (Predrag Bjelac).

The action & setting is where the movie diverts your attention from the weaker elements of the movie.

***Spoilers included in review***

Scowling looks from the now grown up squire who was basically a brawler for hire. A lord of a border castle who suffered a mauling wound to the arm that had me retching when they hacksawed it off. The super clean daughters sleeping in a four poster bed were the typical feisty one and meek one. The loyal man attached to the main hero owing a life debt taken straight out of Costner's "Robin hood" - Morgan freeman's role. The battle scenes were not as well done as Ironclad but just as gory, the pitifully low walls, the completely useless stone bridge over dry moat and a wooden main gate that burned down in about five minutes were laughable. The loss of numerous scots to avenge one man's death when they could have just set the gate on fire on day one and been in the castle raping pigs and killing women. The ridiculous ending was probably the worst part of the entire story yet the character of Mr Smith, the castle's Seneschal was well played, it was a strong character, was very well acted and with the Lord early on they tried to rescue as many villagers as possible until outnumbered and retreated themselves, very well done, believable, they did their job as they were duty bound to do and knew their limitations. That part of the film was realistic for me and well performed. The Scots though irritated the hell out of me, the campfire in the forest scene had me cringing, random Scottish voices from no discernible source saying kill them all, arggh like pirates in a bad movie. The hammer wielding egg headed bald guy who almost rebelled his chieftains orders, wanted to and then when his Chieftain fell just walked away after talking the entire castle and having only one fighting man left to oppose them, ridiculous tosh!

This is supposed to be Ironclad 2 and follow on from the siege of Rochester. Instead it is about some family of Norman descent privilege that have built a castle on the border land with Scotland. Then a vengeful Clan Chief leads his bunch of be-woded warriors to wreak revenge and do a lot of gurning.

The plot is that the young master – Hubert – has to go and get help from an estranged cousin who is a bit handy, as it were. This is Guy played rather well by Tom Austen. Then the action begins and to be fair there is plenty of action and it is mostly good.

However, there are some issues that could have been resolved and this would have been soo much better. For starters there is shaky cam during the action scenes and this is Richter scale 8 shaking, so a bit disappointing. Then the use of wode – I mean really this is supposed to be 1221. The spiral staircases in the castle go down on the left giving the advantage to the attacker – sack the architect immediately.

Then during the fight scenes which contain ‘explosions’ for added authenticity they have buckets of straw strategically placed to spread as much fire as possible inside the besieged castle. I could go on but I think that is enough. Most of the acting is good though and they actually manage to engender pathos in parts and I enjoyed 80% of it, but this is one that many will not want to bother with because of the aforementioned issues and a bit more beside – I won’t bother if they make a turd – I mean a third one in this series.
