“Five stars! Brutal and exhilarating… barrels of gore, lots of nudity, and some nasty plot twists. It’s certainly not for the weak of heart (or stomach), but it is a great movie.

“Martin (Rutger Hauer) leads a band of brutal mercenaries in the plague-ridden Medieval era. After being betrayed by their king, they strike back by kidnapping maiden Agnes (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who is promised to Prince Steven (Tom Burlinson). They then come across a castle, which they promptly decide to attack and keep for a new home. They set about the task, while Prince Steven and his men rapidly approach in their search for Agnes.” – eFilmCritic.com
