I remember a young hero and his band of friends getting teamed up with another warrior (that is discovered to be a woman latter on) and is sold out by (HER) king. They sail on a ship to rescue a small boy (a young king Arthur?) that was taken from them by force and left on a prison island. The bad guys hang a old man (Merlin?) that was with the boy, over a cliff on a swinging yard arm. The hero's climb the face of the cliff and rescue them, and slay the evil guards and other bad guys. There are only a small numbered amount of hero's... and all the guys "trip out" over how bad ass the warrior woman is. Also, all male hero's always seem to fight in groups where they out number the bad guys, they are always close to the solo warrior girl... who is always out numbered 6-7-8 to 1 and looks at her fellow hero's in disbelief as they never seem to ever get around to helping her (LOL). The boy finds a sword that was in the hands of a statue of some another dead King.
She also kind of "mothers" the boy... her armor is "Fantasy Saudi Indian" of no time period.

What is the name of the Movie???

I see there are some like-minded film lovers here. Django Unchained comes to mind offhand, for sure. No Country for Old Men, loved that one. Four Lions--awesome. Submarine and Take Shelter were standouts in 2011. Moonrise Kingdom!!

Dracula Untold: a story of substance. Dracula has never been depicted better, and I hope this is confirmed as part of the monsters universe.

The Force Awakens: the best Star Wars to date. Kylo Ren is a better character than Darth Vader, and the new leads Rey and Finn have as much charisma as Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.

Spectre: the best Bond to date. Grounded and dark, yet honours the formula.

Dredd: mature, honours the material and has a smart sense of humor (and Olivia Thirlby and Karl Urban are equally brilliant).

Total Recall remake: Colin Farrell is the perfect choice as Douglas Quaid, and Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel each elevate the movie. I'd even go as far to say that this version puts the Verhoeven film to shame.

The Conjuring: maybe the best horror film of the past 20 years. The suspense is beyond belief, and pacing and structure are in tact.
