| Original Score: 1/5
The director, Uwe Boll, remains committed to long, dull, mediocre action films. His tenacity is a virtue.
| Original Score: 1/4
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Uwe Boll isn't the worst director in the world, but In the Name of the King might be more enjoyable if he were.
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.
The biggest laugh occurred when one prisoner, chained to the wall of a cave, asked another chained prisoner, 'Where you from?'
Is this movie so god-awful bad that it's hilariously good? Can't be bothered deciding. Figure that's an answer in itself.
