The Last Templar
When a medieval decoding device points the way to the long-lost treasure of the Knights Templar, an archaeologist and FBI agent join forces to find it, never realizing the Vatican will stop at nothing to prevent its discovery. For at the end of the trail littered with hidden clues, ancient codes and bodies of silenced conspirators, lies a secret so shocking it will change the face of history forever. Based on Raymond Khoury’s #1 international bestseller, “The Last Templar” is a pulse-pounding adventure where nothing is what it seems. And only the truth will set you free.
The Last Templar” has an interesting storyline for sure. After a flashback to the old knights and sword fights, the film begins with knights riding horses into a museum in contemporary New York and stealing items while they break glass and strike people with swords. They are shot at and soon flee. One of the visitors at the museum, Tess Chaykin (Mira Sorvino), grabs a police horse and chases them.
This fast-paced opening sequence leads to many other action sequences, with the movie featuring archaeology, romance, and more action as the quest for a “secret treasure” takes place and involves lots of good guys and bad guys. An FBI agent, Sean Daly (Scott Foley), keeps tabs on Tess. He can’t help but like her. She feels the same way and at times she is livid with him and at other times she kisses him.
Ultimately we learn the secret of the search and, although we won’t spoil it by saying exactly what it is, people of Christian faith might be offended. Yet the movie clearly states that faith plays a part in the Christian religion and, as one character observes, religion is important to a great many people, so maybe there’s something to it.
Regrettably, implied sex takes place between two unmarried people and they both make it clear with statements made later that they don’t regret it. There are also several scenes of violence including a hanging seen on screen. Therefore, we are unable to present “The Last Templar” our Dove Seal.
