Chief among these men is Sir Richard Clovell, who fought for the King in many a battle throughout Europe, and who is known to wield a Spanish sword won in one of those battles. In his travels, he learns in the dying words from one of the King's spies that Baron Breaute, ruler of a region called Rochefort, is plotting with de Montfort to put together a rebellion army, funded by a treasury of plundered gold hidden somewhere in Rochefort.

What a waste of celluloid
14 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I happen to like swash & buckle movies, the more trite, the better. I even like melodramas, complete with Snidely Whiplash and a dashing Hero. But this movie was too much, even for me. Cheaply made, the producer obviously cut corners everywhere: the writing is not just weak, it's watery. The direction is practically non-existent, the camera-work could have been done by a mannequin, and I've seen better acting in Community Theater. One of the Little Rascals plays would have been more interesting to watch.

I have to admit that I didn't make it all the way through the movie. Even though I have chronic insomnia, I fell asleep in the middle of the climatic fight scene. So I guess it was good for something, after all...
