In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale Reviews

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.

Boll clearly still has no idea how to direct or edit a movie, but there is evidence to suggest he has at least learned how to shoot one.

If Burt Reynolds supposedly punched PT Anderson in the nose for the crime of putting him in Boogie Nights, God only knows what he did to Uwe Boll for putting him in Dungeon Siege.

Fans looking to ridicule and laugh at the newest Boll adventure will be disappointed after the first 20 minutes. It was funny when it started, then it got boring. Too boring to even laugh at anymore.

Boll has been compared to Ed Wood, but there's nothing personal about his ineptitude; he's just a deal-maker completing a transaction. Save perhaps for his fan club of ironists, movies like In The Name Of The King could only make a ledger happy.

In the Name of the King would be irredeemable if not for its near-brilliant ability to give the viewer douche chills for 127 solid minutes.

Easily lives down to what genre fans have come to recognize as the Boll standard.

The film never achieves a suitable level of camp that would make it at least unintentional fun. It also is terminally boring at its 127-minute running time, making one supremely grateful that a half-hour has been cut for this U.S. release.

A plodding patchwork of derivative fantasy-adventure, medieval production design, risible dialogue, unimpressive CGI trickery and haphazardly edited action sequences.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Uwe Boll just spent 126 minutes telling Peter Jackson how thin, talented and gorgeous he is.

I would like to think that Uwe Boll is not a mentally-challenged individual. However, the incompetence of his movies speaks otherwise.

Boll manages to hold this disaster in the making together by infusing it with unexpected energy.

Is it any surprise that this film wasn't screened for any critic, anywhere in the free world? But even I was unprepared for the level of suckage this movie produced.

Though several battle scenes have surprising flair -- Hong Kong fight choreographer Tony Ching obviously came in handy -- the movie's too turgid to qualify as campy fun for more than a few fleeting moments.
