Synopsis

His faith broken by years of battle as a crusader, Behmen (Nicolas Cage) returns to central Europe to find his homeland decimated by the Black Plague. While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg, Behmen and his trusted companion Felson (Ron Perlman) are apprehended and ordered by the dying Cardinal to deliver a young peasant girl, believed to be the witch responsible for the Plague to a remote abbey where her powers can be destroyed. Behmen agrees to the assignment but only if the peasant girl is granted a fair trial. As he and five others set off on this dangerous journey, they realize with mounting dread that the cunning girl is no ordinary human, and that their mission will pit them against an evil that even in these dark times they never could have imagined.

  • 2 stars "Very predictable, felt like a thousand other movies."
  • 3 stars "This was a film that doesn't try to be new or different or god it tries to be entertaining adn it is. The acting is pretty good with Claire Foy as the standout and Nicholas Cage was his usual bland self but what are you going to do. The director Dominic Sena creates a suspensful film, even though it utilises several scenes that have been done before in better films and he adds a spark to them. The film is corny and campy adn jsut plain fun for a saturday afternoon."
