Ironclad/Ironclad 2 - Battle for Blood DVD
Directed by Jonathan English
Double bill of historical action adventures set in the Middle Ages.
In 'Ironclad' (2011) it's 1215 in England and King John (Paul Giamatti) has reluctantly signed the Magna Carta treaty, but quickly reneges on the promises drawn up in the charter and leads an army to the southern coast of England to take down the rebel barons who forced him to sign it.
A courageous group of Knights Templar must now face off against King John's army as they place Rochester Castle under siege.
Brian Cox, Jason Flemyng, James Purefoy and Charles Dance co-star.
In the sequel, 'Ironclad 2 - Battle for Blood' (2014), it's a year later and the Celtic raiders are terrorising England, stealing livestock and killing people.
When Hubert (Tom Rhys Harries)'s father is murdered he seeks the help of his cousin Guy (Tom Austen) to protect his family's castle and defeat the enemy.
Guy, who fought in the Great Siege of Rochester Castle, is an embittered swordsman who demands payment for his services despite being a member of the family.
While they are still amid the preparations for battle, however, the Celts attack.
Who will survive the ensuing violence? The cast also includes Michelle Fairley, Roxanne McKee and Danny Webb.
