In 13th-century England, a small group of Knights Templar fight to defend Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John.
According to director Jonathan English, the bloody hackings of arms and legs were not done with CGI but with old-fashioned prosthetics.
Have you ever killed a man, squire? Hanh?
Marshall: You will learn it is not a noble thing.
Guy the Squire: Not even when it is for freedom?
Marshall: Not even when it is for God!
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.
