o Uwe Boll sakateyei allo ena video game, aynanizomenos me tis filodoksies toy gia Arhonta ton Dahtylidion, poy tha mporoyse na perasei os anekto tileoptiko epipedo Irakli, an den thymize toso poly Power Rangers
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.
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.
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.
