Quotes

Marco D'Aviano: [Speaking to the council] Your Majesties, Excellencies, I am only a poor monk. I know nothing of strategies or plans of attack. But I do know that Vienna represents the survival of Christianity. I know that if you have faith, you will win. If you remain united, you will win. So if the King of Poland says he knows how to win this battle, let him explain it to us.

Recommended - Substance and not CGI
7 April 2015 | by pbsoko-56481See all my reviews

Good storyline and a historical representation of events that shaped Europe. Most of the actors are excellent in their acting. However, the CGI effects are not on par with a multi-million dollar flick. You need to remember, this was a very low budget movie that actually engages you with a proper story. This movie, for acting and storyline alone, deserves at minimum a 6 rating. It should be seen to allow all to understand the mindset of what the middle east has in store for the rest of the current world. Centuries ago Poland stood up, will it take invasion to open the eyes to the rest of the world? "Misunderstanding of the present grows fatally from the ignorance of the past." Marc Bloch
