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.

Originally set for release in March 2010. The studio pushed back release when test screenings reportedly did not impress Lionsgate executives. Reshoots were held in September 2010 in Shreveport, Louisiana. See more »
The Crusades were the 11th, 12th and 13th century religious military campaigns; so a bit before the 1330's dates at the start of the movie. For example, the Siege of Tripoli lasted from 1102 until July 12, 1109. Similarly, the Battle of Artah was fought in 1105.
But - the plague referred to in the movie is probably the one in the Early Modern period (1340-1400) where Europe experienced the worst human disaster in its history when the Black Death (also known as the bubonic plague) hit was later. So I guess some artistic freedom was used to place two Crusaders in a time of Plague and Witch-hunting (the witch trials were also in the Early Modern period in a period between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries).

No sir, did not like it, the film felt slapped together from too many clichés. It felt like the production company didn't know if they wanted to make a camp horror or a historical thriller and decided to go halfway in the middle. which did not work.
The opening scene where the heroes are shown is just the same low budget battle shown in different lighting, with different city names but the same bad guys, and with snow thrown in once.
The special effects were comparable to the "legend of the seeker" series. Good for TV, bad for the big screen.
The actors where OK, nothing really to blame on them.
The dialogue wasn't horrible but the fact that it jumped from "well site and drink at the table of my for-bearers" to "let's kill this (female dog)" just didn't work! Please pick a linguistic style and stick to it. Ron Perlman was speaking like hamlet one minute and Hellboy the next.
The photography was well... bad. as in dark, grainy, who fogged the movie screen bad.
The ending is fairly predictable and the only reason I saw the end is because my wife said she was liking it when I asked here about 20 minutes in. If not I would have left and asked for my money back.
