King Maker (2005)
|John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) and Gary Stretch (World Trade Center, Alexander) star in this epic adventure set in the Thai kingdom of Ayutthaya, a Thai kingdom that existed from 1350 to 1767.|
Fernando De Gama (Stretch), a Portuguese mercenary, sets sail for the Orient in a bid to find the man that murdered his father. When his ship capsizes, Fernando washes up on a tropical beach only to be captured by Arab slavers and taken to Ayutthaya where he is sold into slavery. He is rescued from slavery when a beautiful young Portuguese woman buys him from the Arabs and restores his freedom. Not surprisingly he falls for Maria, much to the chagrin of her father. Her father, as it turns out, is the man who killed Fernando's father and thus sets Fernando on a lifetime quest for revenge. When the King of Siam declares war on a Northern renegade pretender, Fernando is pressed into military service. His skill in battle gains him favor with the King who commands him to be one of his personal guards. Unbeknownst to the King, his beautiful but devious wife is plotting to kill him and place her lover on the throne. As trusted guardian of the king, Fernando must stop this plot that could lead the kingdom into war.
