Review:
One of the most obscure corners of English history gets a cheerfully over-the-top treatment in this likeable, yet flawed siege picture.

Back in the 13th century, after the signing of the Magna Carta treaty, a group of Knith Templars hold out in the hard-fought siege of Rochester Castle for months against King John’s troops to defend the freedom of their country.

This cinematic history lesson scores for unflinching brutality and ruthless realism of the past.
