4.0 out of 5 stars Well done May 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I'm not a gamer but, I've read fantasy and science fiction since around 1968. I'm still a fan of the genres. This type of plot and scenario is apparently difficult to put into a movie since there are so few that do an even decent job of laying out this type of story on film. This movie had mostly very good props and the camera work was good. The acting was, while not excellent, still quite good. The story line was entertaining. While it's not in the same league as "Lord of the Rings", or "Harry Potter" it was still very enjoyable. I wouldn't recommend it to a non fan of fantasy and science fiction but, I would recommend it to a fan. Not a movie I would collect but, I enjoyed my one viewing.

2.0 out of 5 stars COULD WE HAVE ONE QUEST THAT ENDS IN PLEASURE? September 5, 2012
Format:DVD
The film gives you a quick background into the good vs. evil aspect then thrusts you into a story where it takes you a while to figure out the good guys from the bad guys. It copies some of the LOTR aspects in that it includes orcs (bad), elves (good) and humans on both sides. Priests who serve the Shadow are called "legates" with Charles Hubbell playing the lead role of questioning loyalty.

There is a prophecy which The Shadow fears, that is where a group of diverse characters lead by one man on a quest will overthrow him and rule Middle Earth er uh.. Baldur's Gate, no wait the world of Aryth. The one legate side kick had a sense of humor and was the only worthwhile character in the group.

The dialouge was otherwise dull and dry: "He has help me hide what must remain hidden." Or "In the shadow of the shadow he shall dance with the beast..." There is one scene with the side kick and Chuzara where we get to see the microphone overhead. The elves use bows (how did they come up with that?) and speak with bad poetic syntax. We never got to see the "little people."

Very little fighting. This appears to be just the first part. A real disappointment of a film. The acting was sad too.

No swear words, sex, or nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Chronicles - A Labor of Love Effort August 29, 2012
Format:DVD
After seeing a trailer on youtube, I instantly bought this. Being an avid fantasy genre fan, I thought this was right up my alley. "Midnight Chronicles" is an independent fantasy film based on Fantasy Flight Game's rpg game named "Midnight". It was originally planned to be a pilot for a tv show, however, it was never picked up by a network (though I think Syfy Channel would have been the perfect place for it). So Fantasy Flight released it as one movie, after about 4 years after it was made, on dvd.

The premise of the backstory is something that's pretty rare in fantasy. Long ago, when the good guys were fighting the bad, the evil overlord Izrador actually won the war, becoming ruler of the land. So the setting and atmosphere is fantasy dystopian. The bad guys govern the land, and magic and elves are outlawed, the only magic users allowed are legate priests. So the plot centers around one the legates, Mag, who has been sent to the town of Blackwier, to investigate the disappearance of a legate, becoming tangled in a deep mystery.

I've read some reviews on this movie, and most people don't like it; most called it a Lord of the Rings coppy-off or wannabe. Yes, it's fantasy, and it has elves and orcs and such, but the story line is completely different and mostly original. Some might say it's a cautionary tale, on what would had happened if the big bad guy like Sauron or Voldemort had won the great battle. Some other people might become bored watching it as well, for it focuses more on plot than action. It's comprised of all unknowns, you won't see any reconizable actor in it. I think that adds a bonus though, as the world will feel more believable and won't feel like another movie with "So and So" acting in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected.. August 31, 2011
By Cass
Format:DVD
I expected this to be just another low-budget adventure flick, but it was actually better than expected. The fight scenes and acting weren't spectacular, but the story was interestingly told and somewhat makes up for this.

I did not like 2 major things with this film, which is why it only gets three stars:

--Some of the character backstories aren't told, which makes it annoying when they introduce a character and you don't learn anything.
--There wasn't an ending. I realize that this was supposed to serve as a pilot for a tv series, but it doesn't resolve anything or answer any of the questions raised by the plot.

Overall, if you're looking for something different to watch, give this one a try.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plodding, awful. April 6, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Relentless over acting, disjointed, no real story arc, must be painful for fans of the game. Avoid.
Useless filler follows..

3.0 out of 5 stars Would had made a decent television series. April 10, 2012
Format:DVD
When you are watching this movie, you have to realize that it wasn't intended as a stand alone movie, but as a pilot for a television series that was never picked up, which is why there are so many loose ends and questions left unanswered. Saying that, if you think of it like a movie it is a letdown that wastes too much time telling the beginning of the story, little character development and almost no action. However, if you think of it as a pilot which it really is, you can enjoy the movie a little more and start to enjoy the character and scenery introduction. But unless there is a series or another movie, you are still left with only the stories beginning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible acting and effects
I guess some people love the "B" movies, but I give this an F...would be a 1 start but guess the cheasy-ness of the acting made me chuckle a bit, so I'll give it 2.

Somewhere between 2 and 3 stars. I watched it and then it ended needing a second half. I couldn't find a second half.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok.
Probably would have fit in better in the 70`s compared to present day filming technology and enhancements. Ok. Not this generation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good movie
The acting was really poor and the whole movie seems like a carbon copy of The Lord Of The Rings!

2.0 out of 5 stars WTF
Very slow, very boring, terrible acting, really bad sword fights. This movie could have been so much better if they had just left it as a game and didn't make the movie at all.

I'm an avid epic-fantasy reader, and will watch movies in that genre even when they're bad. This was too much, however. It reminds of small-town, dinner theater. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the pre-LOTR era
Not a lot of action here, but some interesting interpersonal interactions. Surprisingly good for the pre-LOTR era, when fantasy works didn't resources or attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Valiant First Attempt at a Movie
I heard about this at an SF convention, and I was intrigued enough to order it. Its only weakness is that it's a pilot movie for a TV series that, alas, never materialized.
