In 1218 Danish king Valdemar sends his homonymous young son and heir in safety, as war is at the borders, to Erskil, the bishop of Ravensburg, who is instructed to see to the prince's education. Alas the bishop is the brain of a conspiracy to seize the crown for himself, as most of the nobles are dissatisfied with the endless wars that bring them no profit. The prince and kitchen-boy Aske accidentally fall out of the castle and overhear the conspirators, but are seen and pursued by the men of the One-eyed Man, a feared mercenary who is in the conspiracy to take mortal revenge on the king for leaving him behind on a battlefield where he lost an eye which was eaten by an eagle, which he tamed and now shares his sight with.

I thought the plot was a bit ridiculous, but the movie was a lot of fun anyway. It would be nice if the King was out there alive and well somewhere, but I seriously doubt it.

Jeffrey M (br) wrote: It never quite lives up to the buildup and strength of the overall cast (save Jon Abrahams-who is bad), with a muddled third act and sloppy characterizations. Still, it has enough tense moments and twists to keep things interesting.

Bill B (mx) wrote: Okay, if I'm being completely honest here this all screams of Reagan-era hysteria over what would happen to the children if you let them out of your sight for a second, but it has some amusingly sleazy moments and builds to a decent enough stand-off between the newly minted teen whore and her 'vicious' pimp, though I never fully bought someone as milquetoast as Dale Midkiff as a streetwise thug.Rent that mother.
