It took Sampson and his crew a few years to get this to the screen, I guess that's just how Hollywood works, but the wait was well worth it!If you read any of the reviews here, you will clearly see who actually watched the film as a fan, and you'll see some weird guy who keeps posting garbage reviews over and over under different names. Ignore that guy and see this film! He is just bringing this site down to the level of Facebook and it doesn't look good for him to do that.From a viewer standpoint, you'll need to know right off that this film is as much about the history of <more>
the Knight's Templar as Star Wars is about the space program. This is an Original and Tempting tale that invites the viewer into a classic storyline of wrongdoing, vengeance and on occasion ... boobies! Who doesn't love boobies?I don't want to give away plot details, but you can expect the same flow in this story that has been popular and successful in similar cult classic films like Kill Bill no coincidence intended with Carradine's role , but the transfer of time from then to now with a storyline that "keeps it real" is exactly what I'm talking about.For the technical buffs who see this - enjoy a film actually shot on film, the kind that makes the big screen look magical! Someone mentioned the landscapes look real - my guess is that it's because it was professionally shot on the REAL landscape! I was transformed back in time 800 years in the first scene.The castle they shot in is also real. This isn't a studio set, that's a real building. I did my homework on that and I wan't to spend a night in it, the place looks great! The players in the game are a nice blend of long standing film talents and some fresh faces in the industry who got a real lucky break working with this line-up. It's evident in the story and the production that the big names who did this film did it because it is a standout notch not their resumes! Sampson produced a winner in this! Kier, Reedus, Carradine - these aren't come and go actors, these people only do films that matter, I was truly impressed!While you can only officially get it at the moment in the UK, or order it from Amazon/Europe like I did, I say Get It! I'm sure it will be hitting the states soon, but if you're like me and you don't want to wait to own a copy of some great Norman Reedus acting or just to have the thrill of owning the last David Carradine film, Amazon is the place to be. Non-bias rating: It's an absolute 10! You aren't getting 300, Lord of the Rings or some other film that people have compared it to - you're getting something more original, and in Hollywood, where people are remaking f'd out scripts like Total Recall over and over again, it's truly refreshing to see that someone took the time and the expense to produce something new that I haven't seen twenty times over. Before I have to sit through another rendition of Alice in Wonderland, I'm glad to enjoy a unique plot with characters I actually like!Ignore the big mouth slamming this film on this review board, watch it and enjoy the American Dream. A film that someone dreamt up and created without ripping off the same old garbage. Night of the Templar is well worth the ten bucks!
Movie just came out in England under a different name, Knights Templar. Not sure why the name change, but caught it just the same with a group of friends. First off, WOW, a mate of ours is a big history buff, and he was anticipating this title for quite some time, as a result, the lot of us got pushed into watching it with him. Wasn't expecting more than a history lesson, but have to say, this is by no means a documentary on the Knights Templar or a historic movie *thankfully* Will admit a good portion of it takes place during the Templar rule, but it is not the scope of the movie. When <more>
it is in the past, it is very well played and intriguing. The storytelling is delightful the way the filmmaker intertwines the past and present. It is mysterious, thrilling, and at times quite bizarre and unusual. Of course there is the macho action and brutal killings throughout, but its so much more than that. Hate to give it away, so I'll try not to, but you won't know who the 'killer' is until well into the third act. So I guess it's a bit of a murder mystery, too. Quite fun seeing Billy Drago in a dress, such the unusual character for him. Sure he loved the opportunity to expand his portfolio. Thought Udo Kier, as always was spot on. Definitely a nice send off for David Carradine. Unlike the B movies he found himself doing after his excellent Kill Bill sequence, David's character, simply called, the 'Shopkeeper' has moments of sincerity and surprising levity, especially when he and the lead character Jake nicely played by Paul Sampson are on screen together. And in homage to his legend, David does yield a sword in the finale of the film, even if his sword does have the weight of a 'butter knife' lol . How befitting. Although he was only supporting, he is spot on. Won't mention them, but there are at least two moments in the movie that are reflective of the peculiarities that occurred in his death in real life death. Almost a bit disturbing one of them.But then again, this is a very strange movie at times. Delightfully strange to the point it may gather a deserving cult following in time to come. Norman Reedus also had moments of levity in the film, a little outside his regular Norman Reedus repertoire. Enjoyed him immensely in this film every time he was on screen. Loved the lead actor, Paul Sampson, he juggled two characters effortlessly. He plays the betrayed medieval warrior, Lord Gregoire and his modern day character, Jake. He fairs well believable playing both, especially the moments when the characters cross in his transformation. The medieval cast was excellent and the female modern day cast very attractive, sexy, and varied in looks. Men will definitely have their choice at the buffet table. Note, while it is a bit mad zany , the story can be a bit challenging to follow at times.
I absolutely loved this flick! I was pulled in the very first moment- the battle was riveting.The unexpected plot unfolded with crazy and strange characters. So dark. This is the greatest dare, anyone who didn't like it would fail miserably at truth or dare. Paul Sampson's performance is genius. As if he was from that time in a past life, only he can play that role. Billy Drago still haunts but it has become my guilty pleasure. Carradine shines through with his natural presence. The chemistry within these actors made me get so lost in the storyline that I was scared to death for a <more>
moment. The best part is well I can't say I'll give it away. For your virtual medieval escape don't miss this one.
Hands down a film you should watch! (by starmakerzz0)
I knew within the first fifteen minutes this was movie that would interest me! In fact after two minutes I wanted to grab some popcorn, a large pepsi and a package of twizzlers for this movie. Knights Templar compares to no other film presently available on the market, it was shot on film not HD digital, the actors are known movie stars,and the plot has not been done before!I must warn you there is some messy killing scenes, and I did shed some real tears during one scene. I am pleased I was lucky enough to see this film after reading about it online.I praise Paul Sampson who is obviously a <more>
gifted performer, has the guts to produce, direct and write one hellva movie!!
Two Worlds in One Passage of Time-Works Well!! (by enemiesTC300)
The passage of time weaves in and out in Knights Templar. Beginning with Lord Gregoire gathering his men together, believing the knights are all in union with him and his sensibilities. But, in fact one man is a traitor as Judas was to Jesus and before Gregoire can save himself and his followers, he is brought to his death by the hand of that man.This is truly our world, a man seeking a moral, right way of leading is thought to be beaten by jealously and greed of another man. The story has just begun and we can now enjoy a lovely Europeanesque get away, a present day timeless quality. Jake <more>
hosts this weekend aided by a chef and butler a somewhat lazy pair . Not ever quite sure who is responsible for the constant murders on the estate. You have your suspicions; shopkeeper, the Father,the bad boy? One by one the guests experience a violent bizarre death. You are left the question? Who is responsible for these crimes and why? After reflecting, Lord Gregoire shows us he has a deeper purpose and our actions speak lifetimes and we must try and see past our own wants and needs.
Film fetish for fantasy flicks! (by takeemalive999)
Nights Templar is magic.My girlfriends and I had a sleepover and watched it. I loved it because of the murder mystery storyline and the actors in it!I am especially intrigued by movies starring Paul Sampson and Norman Reedus. I've seen all the films they've done. I guess I am somewhat obsessed with these two. I liked that sexy Paul Sampson had a dual role-the knight and the events coordinator his ancestor many lifetimes later . OMG! My favorite scenes were between Lord Gregoire and Lord Renault, and a scene in the kitchen with Jake and Shauna.I really love the weekend getaway inn-so <more>
pretty. I had to look away during the girls getting murdered not that I liked any of them! Mostly nasty types. What was super interesting was that some of the knights were reborn as women.Shape shifters maybe?
Right, I'd like say seeing films are what I do when I'm not at home working. My spare time spent going to a movie or two during the week. A friend and I viewed this movie. Based on these reviews 1 star or 10 stars?? There seems to be a definite difference of opinion, and a bit of accusations. Unfortunately we can't climb into IMDb users home and see exactly who they are! Before I go into any possible spoilers I will give some words to describe this movie- weird, strange, sexy, odd for sure,unique, kind of crazy and a little freaky. If that's your thing then look no further. <more>
Night of the Templar aka Knights Templar is a cult film! What's a cult film? Usually an independent/indie film, known to be eccentric, and somewhat controversial. A devoted group of followers like/love it and hear by word of mouth. Some become obsessive fans. This is that. A line up of professional male actors, some more recognizable than others that are weird alone. But putting them together is bizarre.Udo Kier has piercing blue eyes, seen him before and can't place other films he's done. Billy Drago in drag. Wow!! Max Perlich, remember him in another campy cult film-"Drugstore Cowboy" with Matt Dillon.Max seems like the guy who hangs out with the wrong people and gets in big trouble every time. The LEGENDARY martial artist actor David Carradine,who sadly left us. Norman Reedus must be mentioned because if you watch TV you've seen him on The Walking Dead. Norman is believable in all his film and television work. Based on the credits, Paul Sampson must have dedicated himself to this film- he wrote, directed and starred in it. To review this film, you are reviewing Paul Sampson.So imagine we can see a glimpse of what's going on in his brain!!?? Scary stuff! The pretty girls Sofie Norman, Ingrid Souray,Lisa Gleave,and Mary Christina Brown all serve as eye candy. A few spared a treacherous death.The depth in this movie is out of whack- meaning I don't know if its on purpose or just by accident. Its not a simple story, more complex. Sometimes hard to follow even. I will break it down by genre- Horror- Yes,there is slasher aspects, think the kind of killing in Halloween or Friday the 13th. Action-Yes,the knights and later sword fighting with martial arts. Mystery- Yes,who's the killer?? Night of the Templar is original film because its a hodgepodge of many genres, characters, and the story is intricate like a maze.
Knights Templar Reincarnation-Revenge Flick...someone had to make it sooner or later!! (by ajkbaboolia)
Hello, Writing out to the blue can feel a bit of an odd thing, but here I go with the thought that sometimes even busy, creative people have a moment to reflect upon a strangers comments from time to time.I was having a quiet Birthday day, just musing on what auguries the day would offer without my making plans and having gotten cold and dark Winter in Australia I decided it was time for the computer...found your film by and having a perpetual interest in the late 1200's and early 1300's Knights Templar etc. it was an easy choice to make. Like a nudge from my mother who recently <more>
passed, and who in phases between cancer rounds did a tour of the Holy Land and Ireland and Templar sites there and in between. So you can see, the Title was enough to get me in! It seems the Templars have woken up in a lot of people at the present time, for and against the argument still rages in those connected. Feeling they are often misrepresented I keep a skeptical mind when approaching content about them. Saying that, however, here's what I liked about your story-film. 1. Reincarnation-a tricky thing to visualize the mechanations of, and I'm totally excited by the fact that you tackled it.2. Reincarnation from a western context, why are we so afraid to go there? We have great traditions that speak of such things, why is it more heavily represented in external culture by the Eastern religions. 3. Reincarnation and Christianity, if this would out surely more people could bust free and find a more complex and acceptable expression of Christianity, once again totally excited to see that in your film.4. Just loved how everyone was with Gregoire asides of course those who weren't even the horses expressed his moods and loved him. You showed a man who was ALL that and was worthy, through his inner qualities of humility and devotion, of being followed. He had the mantle to lead but knew his role was equal to that of his brothers. That the role of leadership was his, but not for him, for all, loved seeing that quality. In the medieval parts, no doubt, no sarcasm, no smarminess, thinking he may not have been possible if your film wasn't indie. 5. You showed the darkness in its complexity, calling it by its name....evil. From the vacuous, to the over indulged to the consciously wicked... Udo Kier really went there. And one was redeemed, through the brother bond-a great metaphor for the Templars...and the rest of us, redemption through love6. Evil can and must be punished...have loved my time with the Buddhists, but I'm afraid sometimes the message gets watered down to a very permissive positive affirmation card! 7. Loved the transformation from the holy fool to the pure hearted, shy girl. Loved the transformation of that relationship. Soul mates do come in the oddest of places and myriad of forms And in that lives the story I wish I could see clearly enough to write, how we change and stay the same and how we morph genders and roles and what is left and what is burnt away by the fires in between lives and well, the fires and trials of this here and now life...so thanks for exploring that and having the courage to put it out there.8. Loved the epitaph at the end.So probably more than this even but thinking that your quiet moment may pass before you reach the end of this!!!Wishing you further inspiration and courage, BCT
How can this be rated 3 our of 10? The reviews are very favorable and this movie is awesome! (by davesned)
I'm so glad I didn't pay attention to IMDb's 3 rating and read the reviews. Although I've heard of much of the cast, David Carradine, Norman Reedus, Paul Sampson, Billy Drago, Max Perlich, I hadn't heard of this movie until I was doing a "Templar" search on the internet. This movie is one of the coolest movies and I stress coolest that I've seen in a long time, like back to Reservoir Dogs. Well acted, very well directed Paul Sampson, first time and also great job in dual lead roles and very well shot. 70's feel with music and vibe. Very sexy scenes <more>
and keeps you guessing. I can normally predict the next scenes and movies yet couldn't peg this one.Almost all the reviews are very favorable but IMDb lists this as a 3 out of 10 user rating?! This isn't the first time IMDb is waaay off base. I'm losing confidence in the accuracy of this site.
