Number of Times Seen – Twice (16 Mar 2011 and 20 Feb 2021)
Brief Synopsis – Two Crusader knights who have deserted their comrades are forced to take a young girl suspected of being a witch to a Monastery where the monks can determine her fate.
My Take on it – Completely absurd story that fails to work on any level.
Once again, Nicholas Cage takes on a role that has no point to it.
The story moves in a very strange way that is quite jarring to watch and fails to be coherent at all which is very problematic the whole way through.
The film does have a very talented supporting cast including Ron Perlman, Claire Foy, Stephen Campbell Moore, Stephen Graham and Christopher Lee, but their roles are also quite strange and don’t add anything to this film that would help make it more worthwhile to watch.
The sets are actually the only parts of the story that are created well.
The action sequences are poorly done which takes so much away from the whole way that things are being told here.
The special effects are also done quite poorly and fail to make us believe everything that transpires here which is quite a shame to watch.
The film has far too many pot holes and contradictions that made it even harder to pay more attention to all that transpires because of the way that it makes so little sense in all that it gives us.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Theatrical movie debut of Claire Foy (The Girl/Anna). (From IMDB)
Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
