Movie Info

A ragtag group of Knights Templar hold out for months against the hard-fought siege of Rochester Castle in the thirteenth Century. Set in the time of King John's signing of the Magna Carta treaty, the group struggles against the King to defend the freedom of their country. "Judging from James Purefoy's bloody sword, the movie Ironclad is going to be a bloody feast! Well at least it will be somewhat historically accurate because the Siege of Rochester Castle was a damn bloody mess, a really hard-fought battle." -- (C) Arc Entertainment

    20 guys in a castle in England try to hold off the rampaging hordes of Danish mercenaries (let's stop and simply enjoy the pairing of those two words. "Danish" + "Mercenary" ... admit it, you never thought of it before, did you? I certainly never did!) under the authority of good ol' King John, the go-to bad guy whenever the eleventh century is brought to mind. Sort of an English Thermopylae, this one has it's moments. Most of them are taken up by Paul Giamatti as King John, who can play bad guy in his sleep and scare you.

    A very good adventure action movie. Its violent and very gory. Good actors all-around including Brian Cox, Derek Jacobi, Jason Fleming, Paul Giamatti, Charles Dance, James Purefoy and the lovely Kate Mara.
