Farmer sets out on a momentous journey to get his wife back and along the way, encounters magic and adventure as the quest soon reveals his real destiny in the kingdom.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tragic magic February 23, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie is so unbelievably bad that I have to break it down into parts for this review.

Overview:

Based on a video game, it comes over as The Lord of the Rings lite, complete with Orc-like Krugs, John Rhys Davies, and a guy with a Legolas hairstyle. Bad guy Gallian (Ray Liotta) swirls around in clouds of smoke, and does his business through the eyes, ears and lips of really big Krugs who ride horses.

The only redeeming parts are the fight scenes with Statham, and even the battle scenes get monotonous after a while. And speaking of the battle scenes, we get the infantry and the archers and so on, but why do we have ninjas and Amazonian tree women in the mix-up? (Mind you, Kristanna Loken of the L-Word looks really good wrapped in leaves)

Leelee Sobieski is underutilized as the daughter of Rhys Davies character Merick, but comes into her own at the end, while Matthew Lillard does his Scooby Doo thing mainly for comic relief.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. A farmer named Farmer farms his land with his family
2. Marauding Krugs under the command of Gallian attack
3. See Farmer fight
4. Fight Farmer, fight
5. Farmer fights in vain, but lives to fight again
6. The King wants Farmer in his army, but Farmer wants to be a one-man show
7. No man is an island
8. Farmer signs up, but has problems with the armor, which doesn't suit his image
9. Battle scenes
10. Change of leadership occurs
11. Grand finale with bad guy proves that books have power
12.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY well done movie December 11, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I always read the reviews and look at the rating on a movie before I buy a DVD on Amazon, which is where I buy most of my DVDs. When I looked at the reviews for In the Name of the King - A Dungeon Siege Tale I decided not to buy it and put it off for years. But during a search for another movie it came up and I decided to spend a whole $2.98 for the DVD from someone who was selling through Amazon. Boy had I been wrong, and had the reviews been so wrong on this one. I buy a lot of Fantasy movies, most of them in fact, and this is one of the best I have seen! Most are studio B with poor acting and film work. This one has a good story, good acting, and is very well made (good sets, good costuming, and so on). I love it. I do not understand the bad reviews from other people. When there is so much bad Science Fiction and Fantasy to complain about and this one is well made, why report it as bad? You guys are nuts.

In short, this is a good Fantasy movie and well worth the selling price, buy it. Do not be silly like I was and pay any attention to the bad reviews.

2.0 out of 5 stars A "King" of Shreds and Patches January 11, 2008
Format:Theatrical Release
"In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale" is Uwe Boll's most ambitious film, which is probably why it's also one of his worst. Here's a story that wants to be an epic fantasy but completely skimps on the epic part--the remaining fantasy is occasionally enjoyable at best. The battle sequences are small-scale and oddly claustrophobic, the characters are broadly drawn, and the dialogue is some of the dopiest I've ever heard. I suppose it would have been too much to expect something more, given that this is a film adaptation of a video game. But that really isn't saying much, since Boll's filmography consists largely of video game adaptations, and almost none of them have been decent. I exempt his previous film, "Bloodrayne," simply because it was just mindless enough for the entertainment to sink in. I concede that "In the Name of the King" has moments of entertainment, but since most of the film is about as unintentionally campy as a B science fiction film from the 1950s, that's not much of a compliment.

Most of the problems stem from the casting choices: virtually every actor seemed like a square peg in a story full of round holes. Let's begin with the first billed actor, Jason Statham. He plays Farmer, so named because he feels that a man is defined by what he does; much like the archetypal heroes of fantasy plots, Farmer begins as a humble, land-toiling family man, only to eventually discover that his destiny calls for greater things. And yes, he's reluctant to take part in it, since the only life he knows is planting and harvesting crops. But a personal tragedy pushes him into the need for vengeance, a need that will only be met if he joins the King's army to fight the kingdom's enemies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars!?! What the eff is wrong with you!!?!? April 2, 2009
Format:DVD
There were two movies that came out in 2008 which probably rank among the worst in history, this one and Punisher: War Zone.

This movie sucks. You can pretty much ignore what every character says and just insert something you know from Lord of the Rings or Willow. You'll be close enough that it won't matter. Better yet, just watch it in German. It is after all the director's native language. As for the plot, again, just make up your own details from what you've read and seen. You can see the formula revealed without much effort.

"But you gave it three stars, dip****!!"

Yes, and here's why. This film is a monument to bad filmmaking, a milestone that may never be surpassed. It's a clash of opposites though because it is an incredibly expensive, slick production. I would call it one of the most well-made bad movies ever. So much effort and expense went into casting, action sequences, choreography and special effects that it should have been good, but Boll made it awful, so awful that I had to keep watching to see how much more awful it was going to get. Here's a quick breakdown:

Farmer's name is Farmer and he's hero Jason Statham (possibly the only good casting choice).

Farmer's friend is Ron Perlman who for some reason isn't cast as creepy bad guy.

Creepy bad guy is Ray Liotta, which doesn't make sense because he's got in Irish blood in him so he could never be a made man (It's Ray freaking Liotta in a freaking Fantasy movie, what can you say to that!?).

The role of Gandalf will be played by Gimli, son of Gloin.

The role of Arwen/Eowyn will be played by Leelee Sobieski, who is young, pretty and maybe talented, but honestly, the fact that she is in it at all should tell you it's a bad movie.
