Director: Jonathan English Cast: Paul Giamatti, James Purefoy, Derek Jacobi


Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti stars as King John in this epic historical adventure detailing the siege of Rochester Castle in the year 1215. Forced under duress to sign the Magna Carta, an enraged King John assembles a rogue army and fights to take back England by force. As the king sets his sights on London, the only thing standing between him and total victory is Rochester, where the brave Baron Albany (Brian Cox) prepares to fight back until the cavalry arrives. Chief among Baron Albany's small yet determined rebel army is a Templar Knight (James Purefoy) still haunted by his reprehensible actions during the Crusades and wracked with love for Reginald de Cornhill's (Derek Jacobi) ravishing, neglected wife, Isabel (Kate Mara). Later, as the king's army approaches, ruthless mercenary Beckett (Jason Flemyng) and young soldier Guy (Aneurin Barnard) vow to fight alongside Baron Albany to the death.

Okay, so some of the historical information isn't accurate but did you ever see a movie that was 100% on-target? Because if you did, it's called a documentary. What was realistic about this show is its battle scenes - WOW were they brutal. Giamatti was very good as King John, savagely claiming through word and deed his divine right to rule. Purefoy was also top-notch as a knight dealing with the sins he's carried out, all in the name of God. Saw this at the Dallas International Film Festival in 2011 and some of the filmmakers were there so that was cool...
