Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 A fun film! Just seeing David Carradine with a sword in his hand is worth the price. Throw in Norman Reedus from 'The Walking Dead' and the cool factor is way up there. This is a fun film with cool sword play and a twist on the fantasy genre. Director/Star Paul Sampson does a good job in all departments and brings to the screen some great looking period footage on a limited budget. The movie never takes itself too seriously and that's one of it's strengths. Kick off your shoes, grab some popcorn, and go for the ride! 03/21/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by StalkingSampson Love the movie I really enjoyed the movie. I think I liked the Knight of the Templar scenes the best. The little twist with who ended up being who in the end was really good as well. Great indie film that I think will end up being a cult classic! 07/26/2013

Rated 5 out of 5★ by FilmBuff20616 Sampson knocks it out of the park! I've been following Sampson's career for a few years and I was so glad to see him step out on his own to write, direct, produce and star in his own film. Night of the Templar, an indie film, is a phenom and will become a cult classic. With top quality actors like Udo Kier, Norman Reedus, David Caradine and Sampson himself, the quality of this "indie" makes it a contender against Hollywood backed and endorsed flicks. The script is flawless and the dialog is quirky, serious, engaging and even humorous. The movie is shot on film which gives it that "classic" feel. Sampson has incorporated panoramic views, majestic horses, real-to-life battle scenes and a jamming soundtrack that puts this movie in a class of its own. As for the story itself, the transitions between the past and present are effortless and the actors make their jobs look easy even though each character is extremely complex with many layers. Sampson's character "morphs" from the somewhat dorky present-day, Jake, into the powerful and determined entity he once was 700 years previously. The change - which occurs purposefully and slowly throughout the movie - is brilliantly executed and culminates to an exciting conclusion. When the movie ended, I felt satisfied that all loose ends had been tied. I was not left hanging.Night of the Templar is a must-have for movie buffs, cult film followers and connoisseurs of brilliant indie films. Lots of action, dark yet funny lines, the right amount of kinky stuff and eye candy for both men and women. Night of the Templar is a complete package that's great for date-night, a movie-club screening, girl's night out or a cold wintry night's entertainment in front of the fireplace. 12/07/2013
