“Brutal, bone-splintering brilliance…an old-fashioned medieval hack-and-slash par excellence” News of the World
“The bloodiest film of 2011” Zoo
From the studio that brought you 300 and starring James Purefoy (ROME), Brian Cox (THE BOURNE SUPREMACY),Paul Giamatti (SIDEWAYS) and Kate Mara (127 HOURS), IRONCLAD plunges us headlong into one of the most violent and pivotal moments in English medieval history – when a few good men fought against insurmountable odds to defend their country from a megalomaniac, blood-drunk king. There will be blood.
The year is 1215 and following the signing of the Magna Carta, King John (Giamatti) rallies together a band of ruthless mercenaries to reclaim his powers over England and exert merciless revenge against those that betrayed him. Standing in his way of victory are a group of rebel barons led by Baron Albany (Cox) and a formidable Templar Knight, Marshall (Purefoy), who take control of one of the most strategic and powerful fortresses in the land, the mighty Rochester Castle. If they are to defend the rights of England against this power-crazed King, they must defend the Castle, but there are only 10 of them against a powerful army. With the castle surrounded and food supplies running low it takes all their strength to remain true to the cause. What ensues is an epic struggle of wit, determination and true daring in one of the longest and bloodiest sieges in English history.
