At the beginning of the film, Kane is shown having retired to a monastery. While a large number of English monasteries, priories, convents and friaries were disbanded and destroyed under the orders of Henry VIII during the mid-16th century, this dissolution was not total and some survived.

There was a time when the world was plunging into darkness. A time of witchcraft and sorcery. A time when no one stood against evil.

I liked it. A film very much in the vein of The Mummy series, but with a more adult and dark side. I found the film full of atmosphere and it drew me in despite the shallow story line, which is to be expected given that it's a hero driven action flick. I thought that the effects, make-up, music, acting, directing, really the whole thing was very solid and it's not just another low budget flick as other reviewers have stated. I would welcome a sequel to this movie, although that might be stretching the storyline a tad too much. Sure, not the masterpiece of the Lord of the Rings but certainly a good hack n slash medieval romp that'll keep you entertained for the duration.
