Storyline

The young Isenhart grows at the castle guards to Laurin. Together with his friend Konrad he receives all the privileges of nobility. But it happens a cruel murder: Anna Isenhart's great love is brutally murdered - in her breast a gaping hole in her heart is missing. Isenhart vows to bring the murderer to the track. When he witnesses a murder further, having the same profile, he makes the acquaintance of Henning and his foster father, Gunther Medicus. Isenhart is fascinated by Henning, who appears to him in many ways similar: educated, interested, a pioneer of his time! Together they set off on the hunt for the killer and find incomprehensible: The murderer is a genius - and he is very close to them ... Written by ryder12222

A tale with an original plot line.
21 November 2016 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Recommended (be wary slightly slowpaced & relatively low budget)

I exspected a fantasy and got a history/action (possibly slightly sci-fi to it as well).

It's a good watch, it is slow at times, but the story is given time to evolve as it should. The effects are not all there even though costume possibly pulled off an incredible feat (depending on budget). However it still isn't fully enough as some helmets does not suit it's bearer and some extras does not fill the shoes as well as they should. Gore and grit is pretty much there, which is a big plus. The cast is alright, the lead (pretty unknown to me) is alright but does not excell

  • however does not remove realism from it either which is mostly down
to the dialogue (which is well written). The acting overall could be a little better but isn't below average for similar movies, rather slightly above.

Pro's • Script • Dialogue (up and down but mostly solid) • Original plot line (or at least have the feeling thereof) • Costume & scenery • Director (which probably made ends meet)

Con's • Budget (?) - doesn't reach all the way • Some elements are slightly improved upon by modern norms/rationale

End notes: This isn't Braveheart, on the other hand it does not have a white van it in either. I liked it, it shows that you can do quite big historical movies with a relatively small budget. -It's quite well crafted for similar movies and delivers on originality.
