Storyline

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

Goofs

During the historic 1215 siege of Rochester Castle, the Kings forces initially gained access by mining the south east tower in the curtain wall. This method was then repeated on the south east tower of the keep. The film fails to show the Keep is completely surrounded by the curtain wall as well as the first tower's collapse. The castle today still shows evidence of the two collapsed towers, as they were later rebuilt as semi-circular, compared with the original square towers. See more »

Guy the Squire: [Upset that he has killed in battle] There's no finding peace after knowing this!
Marshall: Faith, Guy. Only the weak believe that what they do in battle is who they are as men.

Tip top medieval English gore-flick
12 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This hack and slash classy English historical movie set in the year 1215, tells the mostly true story of the vile King John,played with wonderful abandon by the great actor Paul Giamatti with a perfect English accent,who for reasons to many for this review lays siege to Rochester Castle in Kent.The castle looks the real deal, but it was built for the film in the beautiful countryside of Wales.The budget was small in USA terms,£20 million, but the film looks fantastic and belies it's low budget.The main theme music by Paul Brady is beautiful.The cast is the cream of British actors, the likes of James Purefoy,Brian Cox,Derek Jacobi,Charles Dance and Jason Fleming.Mackenzie Crook and new young actor Aneurin Barnard shine in supporting roles along with female lead Kate Mara.It is a very gory movie with proper stunt work rather than reliance on CGI.Here in UK it got a 15 cert.If you like this sort of film, think a smaller version of El Cid, then your in for a treat.For reasons i don't understand this cracking good film sat on a shelf for over a year to get a release.In my view, a must see.
