Ironcald is a historical fiction action/adventure movie based in the middle ages. The film is very loosely based on actual historical events but it often deviates from historical accuracy. The film was created with a budget of 25 million dollars and was filmed entirely in Wales. The film begins with a prologue about King John Lackland of England dealing with the revolt of his barons whom were assisted by his formerly trusted Templar Knights. The three year conflict ends with King John signing the famous Magna Carta document granting equal rights to all English freemen. However, the dastardly King John of the film, portrayed by Paul Giamatti, breaks his word and wages war on the barons as an act of vengeance. Thomas Marshall, a Templar whom has taken a vow of silence and seeks to leave the order is told by an abbot whom he is serving that he will secure Marshall's release from the Templar order once they reach their destination of Canterbury. However the abbot is assailed by the king's men and slain along with Marshall's two companions. Breaking his vow of silence, Marshall vows to avenge the abbot and his companions, that their deaths may not be in vain. And so a ragtag team of knights is assembled by Marshall and a harrowing journey to the kings castle begins in an attempt to overthrow the sinister John Lackland.
