5.0 out of 5 stars "Is Killing a Noble Thing?" - Too right! Sept. 10 2011
This is a British made historical battle-a-thon, It is set in the aftermath of the signing of the Magna Carta by King John. He was more or less forced to sign and as such, felt somewhat aggrieved, so in the true fashion of all absolute monarchs, he sets about killing (gruesomely) every bally person responsible, that is the Barons and their `Monk Knights', the legendary Knights Templar.

King John is found out by one of the returning Crusader Templars played by James Purefoy (Solomon Kane), he teams up with the Baron of Albany played by the ever good value Brian Cox. They realise that in order to stop King John they will need to hold the strategically important castle of Rochester. King John has enlisted the help of the Danes, with the promise that they will be allowed to carry on worshiping their Pagan Gods and not have the Pope stuff Christianity down their throats. I suspect a bit of gold may have been promised too. They then set about taking the castle, but Albany has rounded up a small band of killing machines that like nothing more than a big ruck. They include Mackenzie Crook making another change of direction from his more sombre roles as in `The Office'.

Rochester is owned by Derek Jacobi playing Cornhill, and he is married to Kate Mara (Isabel), she is somewhat neglected in the bed chamber department and soon finds herself drawn to the mysterious and pious Templar. You just know stuff is going to happen. Meanwhile the siege begins, with trebuchets', siege towers and scaling ladders, plus loads of Viking nutters. They are ridiculously outnumbered but believe that help is on the way from France and so have to hold out.

4.0 out of 5 stars IRONCLAD Sept. 12 2011
Excellent casting combined with a well written treatment of a known historical event (King John's revenge on the barons who humiliated him) led to a very pleasing movie experience, and I can't understand why this did not achieve theatrical release in North America. Paul Giamatti achieved a first class understanding of the petty, venal, John Lackland, last of the children of Henry II and Eleanor of Acquitaine. (The modern State of England is based on the reforms forced upon King John by his barons codified as "Magna Carta". John was one of the worst kings of the English and is remembered chiefly for his inability to defend the royal prerogatives.) Brian Cox as Baron d'Albany was a brilliant casting decision for the rough and ready rebel, and Derek Jacobi as Baron Cornhill was a perfect choice for a character once capable of rebellion but now more concerned with staying on the good side of the petulant king. This film SHOULD have been seen in theatres where its enormous scope fits it so well. Not "The Lion in Winter", but close.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting history Jan. 4 2013
Ironclad is a little known story of England's King John who ruthlessly sought vengeance on those who forced him to sign the Magna Carta, in an attempt to denounce it. There's a good cast including Paul Giamatti, James Purefoy and Brian Cox (to name a few). The film is often gory in depicting many battle sequences, but portrays a very interesting history of how a small group of rag-tag warriors defended a castle against a thousand mercenaries. As a bonus feature, there is also much to be learned from writer-director-producer Jonathon English's audio commentary. Ironclad is recommended for anyone interested in medieval times and battles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed this movie! April 12 2013
By justin
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what exactly to expect, overall, Ironclad got mediocre reviews and myself not being a Paul Giamatti, I was skeptical. Thankfully my skepticism was short lived; acting was great, the cast seemed knowledgeable in ancient history, the sets were spot on and era accurate, plenty of realistic and believable gore, overall this was a great movie.

I'd recommend it to anyone wanting their medieval movie fix, there are far too few as it is, if you've been thinking about watching or buying it, hesitate no more!

What a lovely little movie,Brutal cruel how else can you describe 13th-Century England,
when King John [Paul Giamatti]was forced to sign the Manga Carta and who in turn wreak havoc
on all who forced him to do so,and a time when the church stood by and let him,because god chose
him to be king and rule the people,James Purefoy as the Knight-Templar did an outstanding job
of his character,didn't said too much only carried a big sword and i mean big,but it was the presence
of Paul Giamatti who mostly stand out,when the French finally arrive King John had to roam the
country with his Army,and who finally die of dysentery,Brian Cox.the good guy can't believe it.
Runtime 121 Minutes.
5.1 HD Master Audio.Widescreen 2.40:1
Brutal Is Not The Word For This Movie.It's Down Right Savage.
