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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Worse than a high school production of Lord of the Rings and as incoherent as a Miss Teen USA contestant.

Sort of like watching Lord of the Rings through a smudged television screen.

The biggest laugh occurred when one prisoner, chained to the wall of a cave, asked another chained prisoner, 'Where you from?'

This is a different kind of bad than, say, the glossy, homogenous, boring Hollywood bad we get from a Michael Bay. This is an impassioned, feverish bad, the kind that is as pure of heart as it is innocent of style. Ed Wood bad.

Though Boll now has his own fan base who love his awfulness -- the crowd I saw the movie with cheered when his name came up onscreen at the end -- he isn't consistent enough for my liking/disliking.

Is this movie so god-awful bad that it's hilariously good? Can't be bothered deciding. Figure that's an answer in itself.

While it does seem entirely likely that prepubescent boys will dig the heck out of this, In the Name of the King ultimately comes off as a pale carbon-copy of the Lord of the Rings series.

A major piece of crap. It shamelessly steals from J.R.R. Tolkien/Peter Jackson, but with none of the intelligence, heart and artistry.
