It is the year 1215 and the rebel barons of England have forced their despised King John to put his royal seal to the Magna Carta, a noble, seminal document that upheld the rights of free-men. Yet within months of pledging himself to the great charter, the King reneged on his word and assembled a mercenary army on the south coast of England with the intention of bringing the barons and the country back under his tyrannical rule. Barring his way stood the mighty Rochester castle, a place that would become the symbol of the rebel's momentous struggle for justice and freedom. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


According to director Jonathan English, Daniel O'Meara really did eat a beetle during the starvation portion of the siege, but he's not sure the actor swallowed it. See more »


The film shows forty pigs being herded into the mine under the castle walls, and then burned to make the timber pit-props collapse, bringing down part of the castle. Live pigs are actually rather hard to set fire to. What actually happened is that forty pigs were slaughtered, and their fat was taken into the mine, along with other inflammable material such as straw. See more »

pretty good
10 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know what people are talking about here ...

This was a great movie, lots of action, and over the top blood and gore.

Sure, some of the acting was a bit off, and it was all mud and blood but that's what the mid-evil times was , mud and dirt and lots of crap.

The lead actor was excellent for being a lost soul and the wife of the keep keeper was beautiful and what you'd expect from being locked up alone with and old man.

Over all I really liked it. If you want a bit of fun and an easy to watch movie without over analyzing it too pieces then go for it.

You won't be sorry.
