5 Give me back my CAAAAASSSTTTLLLEEE!!!!!!Truebluepizzaboy | 25/04/2011 | See all Truebluepizzaboy's reviews (11)Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!! this has everything you need from a film like this..... a completely over the top dictator in King John who just wants his castle back, trouble is, strategically he would win back England and have his revenge on all the lords who forced him to sign the magna carta!! Paul Giamatti gives us an amazingly over the top performance as his not so royal highness, King John. James Purefoy gives an absolutely stunning performance as the Knights Templar assassin who stands in John's way and his castle in the Medway, and Brian Cox gives a great performance as the mastermind behind bringing his band of grumpy mercenaries together to be a right royal pain in the throne for KJ. Solid, and sometimes over the top performances from the cast give us a "Magnificent seven meet the Wild Geese, vs everyone else". This film snuck up on us at the flicks, don't let it sneak past you on blu ray. It may not be quite factually correct, but after the first 15 or so minutes, you simply don't care. Miss it at your peril, knight!!!
