5.0 out of 5 stars A nice TV mini-series August 19, 2009
Format:DVD
I thought this was a pretty good fantasy epic made on a minimal budget. You can not really compare this to LoTR because LoTR was made on a nine figure budget were KofB may have been made on a couple million, if that. I think it was nicely made on the budget it was given, and it is also nice to see a fantasy adventure in a television world ruled by reality television and CSI clones.

2.0 out of 5 stars In search of bloodsteel January 16, 2011
Format:DVD
The Syfy (or "genre syphilis") channel is like the girl with a curl on her forehead -- sometimes it's really really good, and sometimes it's horrid.

"Knights of Bloodsteel" is.... neither. While hardly a shining example of the fantasy genre, this fantasy miniseries isn't a SyFy weekend movie either. It's mostly all about good ideas that aren't fully developed and potential that is squandered -- not to mention acting that ranges from decent to mind-meltingly bad.

In the kingdom of Mirablis, a magical element called bloodsteel is considered essential, both to the vampire-elf/gobin/human alliance and to the villain Dragoneye. What is bloodsteel? Nobody knows! It's basically Applied Phlebotinum that does whatever the characters want. Anyway, bloodsteel is becoming rare, and the only way to get more is to find the Crucible from which it all comes.

An oracle predicts that four knights will arise to search for the crucible and save Mirablis from Dragoneye. And after a clash with Dragoneye's minions, the knights are revealed -- a cynical human drifter (David James Elliott), a reluctant goblin "vessel" (Dru Viergever), a roguish conman (Christopher Jacot), and a conflicted elf sorceress (Natassia Malthe). So they set out on a dangerous quest to get the Crucible.

I'll say this outright -- "Knights of Bloodsteel" is much better than most of Sci-Fi's usual original productions. It has an intriguing high fantasy world where elves, humans and goblins live in peace together, there's a genuine effort at fleshing out the characters (including the villain), the special effects are cheesy but not horrible, and the scenery is lovely.

Unfortunately, the execution is not so great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good movie September 29, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My answer to some of the other reviewers: is it a story that copied the Lord of the Rings, clearly the answer is yes. Yes a counsel is called that decided to form a fellowship which is needed to fight the source of great evil. The main member of this fellowship will give her life in the fulfillment of quest, though she does not do so in the end, she clearly is a Frodo type. Sir John is very much an Aragorn look alike. Is this a one for one copy of the Lord of the Rings? NO! It is a story in its own rights. Is the story influenced by J. R. R. Tolkien? Greatly. What modern fantasy is not? What modern Sci Fi is not influenced by Star Wars?

Was the Lord of the Rings influenced by other works, or did J. R. R. Tolkien work in a vacuum? The answer is J. R. R. Tolkien took his ideas for the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings from Die Nibelugen the story of Siegfried. In Tolkien own words The Hobbits were the English peoples. In the Hobbit Tolkien is saying Siegfried, i.e. the German people, killed the Dragon but it was due to the effort of the Hobbit, the English people. He carries this idea on into the Lord of the Rings, which is drawn from his experience in World War I and II. The point being, all stories stand on the back of other stories.

The question is, is this movie a good movie, i.e. worth watching. The answer is YES. It is well made, good story, the photo work is great, and good acting. Buy it, enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Knights of Bloodsteel September 18, 2010
Format:DVD
Knights of Bloodsteel was another DVD I enjoyed starring David James Elliott. This one was full of adventure, fantasy, sword fighting, some sorcery. It was a fun show that even children would enjoy watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging fantasy August 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While I have to say the film is in no way a great epic; it does provide for an insteresting world that sadly didn't get explored. The world of Humans, Elves, and Goblins living together due to their dependence upon the substance of blood-steel drew me in (Perhaps its the gamer...more correctly game-master in me that likes to see a good setting with lots of background). Though Christopher Loyd does make for an odd choice as an elf!
Most of the goblin make up was pretty interesting, but the main villain (Dragon Eye)looks good right up until he speaks or moves. They could have done a lot better...it didn't need to be as over the top; it would have moved better on his face if they had toned it down a bit (or even just shaded it a bit better).
The plot is predictable; but I found it engaging.
Don't look for big-budget production values, but for the budget they had I feel they did well.

4.0 out of 5 stars No surprises, but still well made fun
The film fits within the Fantasy genre. There are no real surprises apart from an ugly goblin being the sacrificial hero perhaps. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Geared to younger audiences.
Although fairly well done and legitimate effort in its 2009 production is obvious, "Knights of Bloodsteel" is most definitely marketed toward teenagers and pre-teens. Read more
