plot

The year is 1066 and with the Battle of Hastings looming, Saxon King Harold desperately needs some way to defeat the invading Norman French. Thankfully a secret weapon has been developed by a monk called Athelstan. Ethelred, one of the Kings knights, is despatched to accompany the monk and his weapon back to the king. However there are Norman spies lurking at every turn. The most cunning of whom is Else, who will stop at nothing in order to retrieve the 'You Know What' for the Duke of Normandy. We also find out exactly how Harold got the arrow in his eye.

review

Don't even waste your time on this one. We've probably spent more effort writing this review than the scriptwriter put into the screenplay. Even the performances of some of the leads are bad.
