IRONCLAD spacer There just aren't enough 'medieval' movies out there for us fans, and even fewer good ones. Sometimes we just have to take what we can get.
This is not the worst medieval movie ever. Despite all the bad reviews, this film is totally watchable. Turn a blind eye to the ridiculous costumes and you will be alright. (Probably not enough of a budget to clad everyone in chainmail.)
Frought with historical innaccuracies, it still hits on many accuracies as well. Since the violence is very graphic, this movie is not recommended for those with a weak stomach. But I think it is also probably quite close to the mark. Watching a real, medieval battle would make most modern folks throw up, I suspect. I think Paul Giamatti was pretty good as King John. spacer spacer
A million times better than the theatrical release. The plot makes more sense, the characters are fuller, the battle scenes are better. After you have seen this, you won't be able to watch the regular version ever again!
