Critic Reviews for In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
The director, Uwe Boll, remains committed to long, dull, mediocre action films. His tenacity is a virtue.
If this isn't Boll's best effort to date, it's better than his usual output. If he can continue to improve, his name may no longer be synonymous with a punch line.
Like actors in an amateur stage play, the large, mostly all-star -- or has-been star -- cast of In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale look, rather dazedly, to be playing dress-up.
Uwe Boll isn't the worst director in the world, but In the Name of the King might be more enjoyable if he were.
Audience Reviews for In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
Tons of stars means I will give this 2 stars. Thats it. This movie was so bad for what it was . . . just a shame.
This is a terrible film all the way, God knows how they got such a good cast. It rips off so many good, bad and old fantasy films and not in a good way either, just in a hammy cheap way. The story is the usual old rubbish, the effects are poor and the acting is real cheese.
They also manage to stick some martial arts nonsense in there too, as hordes of faceless monster baddies get their arses kicked by the ugly looking Statham without realising once this guy might be a bit good.
Everything is predictable and cliched to the max, it gets two stars for some nice cgi landscapes here and there.
Could of been a cool homage to the old hack n slash Capcom arcade games 'Dungeons & Dragons'...if you get me, but they just go down the overly used martial route these days.
