Uwe Boll uses his biggest budget ever to produce a cheap knockoff of LOTR, complete with an Orc-like army of beasts called Krug, elfin woodland beings, and a wizard-esque magus played by John Rhys-Davies, but without a comprehensible plot.

Uwe Boll isn't the worst director in the world, but In the Name of the King might be more enjoyable if he were.

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.

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.

Not only is Dungeon Siege the best film of Uwe Boll's career, but it's also guaranteed not to be the worst one released in its year.

Only Uwe Boll would assume that the moviegoing public craved a trashy Lord of the Rings rip-off starring Burt Reynolds and Matthew Lillard, and only he could then manage to make such a potentially riotous endeavor so humorless.

It's not bad enough to warrant burning copies of, rather it'll sit on the back of video store shelves for the rest of its time and that's where it should stay.

If you can appreciate bad cinema, than I recommend it, but anyone that is looking to watch an actual good movie, avoid like the plague!

Another lame copy of every crappy sword-and-sorcery epic ever made.

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

This Lord of the Rings wannabe gives fantasy adventures a bad name.

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

Like all Uwe Boll films, it is terrible. Sadly, it is perhaps not terrible enough.

LOTR copycat is so bad it's good -- for laughs.

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.

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

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.
