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.

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.

It's ok. It has a good story. It's watchable at least more than once.

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. Elves, goblins, humans and other denizens of Middle Earth fight against a demon and a dragon. Some of the acting is actually pretty good, but some of the acting is really lacking too. This was a TV mini-series, so the DVD movie is 240 minutes long. That's 4 hours for the arithmetic impaired. Natassia Malthe (Elektra; BloodRayne 2) is great as the heroine, and Christopher Lloyd gives a very acceptable performance as well. David James Elliot is a little too smug and arrogant for the time period, possibly from his days on the set of JAG. Mark Gibbon (Voyage of the Unicorn) gives a decent performance as Dragon Eye (the demon), as does Mackenzie Gray (Voyage of the Unicorn) as Lord Splayven. Heather Doerksen is some of the eye candy for this film, as she also was in the movie "The Eye." A lot of the cast comes from Canada, since this was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Most reviews say bad things about the script, acting, and plot, as well as dissing the director and lack of continuity. One review said this movie is cliché, repetitive, unimaginative, uninspiring, and poorly executed. The only thing I didn't like about it is how it is legitimate Sci-Fi Fantasy genre, but marketed wholly to teens and pre-teens. What that means by definition is that the main characters are made to appear exceptionally young among the good guys, but older among the bad guys. The stereo-type being that old people are mean, slow, and stupid, but young people are smart, clever, and superior.Read more ›

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.
