Storyline

A 14th century Crusader returns to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence. A priest, a grieving knight, a disgraced itinerant and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl. When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardises the knight's pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.

Trivia

Test screenings reportedly did not impress Lionsgate executives and the studio decided to push back the originally planned March 2010 release date. The movie underwent reshoots in September 2010 in Shreveport, Louisiana. See more »

Goofs

The caption reads "The Coast of Styria". Modern Styria - now a province in landlocked Austria - has no coastline at all. Neither did the Medieval Duchy of Steiermark (Styria in English), which did include the northeastern part of the modern state of Slovenia but nonetheless had no connection to the Adriatic Sea during the era depicted in the film.

waste of time
18 February 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a demon. and Nicholas Cage. medieval drops. and a massacred story. fight scenes, caricature about religion, fake lesson about nothing and a kind of movie for passing the time. and not the film is problem but potential of story. but mister Cage is a favorite for bad script. action and nothing else. role of hero and patched stories.unrealistic adventures and awkward act. crumbs of profound problems presented in childish way. same game. and fall of a good actor in shadow of his career.but it is a different problem - option for a very delicate period. temptation to be part of a genre in which nuances are essentials. work with mysteries. and science to describe relationship with Church. nothing present in this case. only slices of blasphemy and memories of Ghost Rider. shame!
