Season of the Witch Movie
Season of the Witch is a new 2011 American period action film directed by Dominic Sena. The film is featured with Nicolas Cage. Season of the Witch movie released on 7th January, 2011 in theaters.

Nicolas Cage as Behmen, Robert Sheehan as Kay, Ron Perlman as Felson, Ulrich Thomsen as Eckhardt, Stephen Graham as Hagamar and Stephen Campbell Moore as Debelzaq are the leading casts of Season of the Witch movie.

Official website of Season of the Witch movie - www.seasonofthewitchmovie.com, writes about the film synopsis, “Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Ghost Rider) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy ll, Sons of Anarchy) star in this supernatural action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closet friend who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their world destroyed by the Plague. The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they discover the girl’s dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.

The years of brutal warfare in the name of God have stripped Behmen (Cage) of his taste for bloodshed – and his loyalty to the Church. Looking forward to a quiet retirement, Behmen and his comrade-in-arms Felson (Perlman) are bewildered to find their homeland deserted, unaware that Europe has been decimated by the Black Plague.

While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg, the two knights are apprehended and called before the local Cardinal (Christopher Lee) to explain their unscheduled return from the East. The dying Cardinal threatens the pair with prison for desertion, unless they agree to a dangerous mission. The Cardinal’s dungeon holds a young woman (Claire Foy) accused of being a witch who brings the Plague with her. They can redeem themselves only by accompanying the girl to a distant abbey where she is to stand trial.

The girl’s brutal mistreatment in prison and powerlessness against the accusations of church officials move Behman. Convinced she is merely a convenient scapegoat and fearing she will be condemned without a fair hearing, he agrees to escort her on the treacherous journey.

In addition to his loyal companion Felson, he is accompanied by a well-traveled con man who knows the countryside (Stephen Graham), an eager young man who aspires to knighthood (Robert Sheehan), a bitter knight who has lost his family to the Plague (Ulrich Tomsen) and a nave priest (Stephen Campbell Moore).

The route is long and arduous, made even more challenging by increasingly disturbing events, and takes the group through uncharted territory, across sheer-walled gorges and deep into wolf-infested forests. One by one his fellow travelers meet with misfortune, and the embattled Crusader finds himself facing his most terrifying adversary.”

Story of Season of the Witch movie is really good and unique like Saw 3D movie but the film is rated very poor by the big movie critics and media.
