James owes his life to his older brother, Frankie after taking the rap for a crime they committed together. While Frankie served time, James worked to turn his life around, got a steady job and began courting his former girlfriend Emily. Now, Frankie is released and back on the streets with no money and no place to go.
When the heir of the Imperial throne becomes the target of an assassination by his despised older brother, the young prince must flee the kingdom and seek protection. His only hope for survival is a reluctant war-weary crusader named Jacob, who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of a mythical outlaw known as The White Ghost. Together they must fight side by side in an epic battle to return the prince to his rightful place on the throne.Written by
It's a good thing that I chose to disregard the other critics and view this one anyway...it turned out to be pretty good. Sure, Nick Cage isn't on screen very much, but it's still a good story; it has some great cinematography, is well-acted and has good production values. It starts out during the Crusades, but doesn't stay there very long...it moves to the far east, and the characters from the beginning come into play later on. The fight scenes are directed kind of shaky(like Gladiator), but are still well-choreographed. I was expecting some kind of low-budget B movie with bad-acting, but I was actually pretty impressed with this one.
