"This is a really cool film - gritty with tough as nails action sequences and strong performances all round. Purefoy keeps it lean and mean as the templar who rallies a disparate band of soldiers and psychos against a marauding Danish army while Giamatti hams it up well as the scheming King John. The pacing is good and the final third of the film ramps up the action and tension with real gusto. Quite how the Time Out reviewer only gave this 2 stars is beyond me! I watched this in hi-def and didn't notice any problem with the CGI and as for "pedestrian pacing" - WTF? Maybe films like Crank are more suitable to the Time Out reviewer."
