The second reason I was curious about this film is because of the director, Uwe Boll. Uwe's career is much maligned, that's no secret. But, Uwe's films have a lot more going for them than people give them credit for. First of all, is Boll's uncanny ability to assemble some of most interesting casts that I've ever seen put together. He hasn't just done this once; he does it consistently. Secondly, Boll's films are always well photographed. They always look great, and there are often some surprisingly beautiful shots of natural scenery. Thirdly, his films often have very good musical scores. In the Name of the King 1 and 2 are perfect examples of the quality of material that Boll's composers deliver. Lastly, no matter the budget, Boll always seems to set out to make big movies. This enthusiasm is evident in all of the films of his I've seen.
That being said, In the Name of the King 2 is not a film that you can necessarily enjoy with a straight face. You have to be willing to understand that this is a film that is meant to be taken light-heartedly and simply enjoyed for laughs both intentional and unintentional. If you're in the kind of demographic that enjoys cheesy Direct to DVD action/adventure films than you'll probably love this. It's a wisecrackin' good time!
Also, honorable mention should be given to Lochlyn Monro. He's very entertaining as the king.
Upon rating movies, many questions must be asked. Is it comparitive, and to what? The Transformers Trilogy looks like the godfather or LOTR trilogy in comparison to the Troll or evil bong trilogy. So do you look to quality of scripting, camera shots, pacing and acting etc? Or do you rate on pure entertainment value, IE how much you like it? My awnser is a mixture of all 3.
For starters, this is a movie shot on a $7.5 million dollar budget, independantly financed straight to DVD, and belonging to the fantasy action adventure genre. It contains a dragon. Similar in those terms is Eragon, a $100 million movie(that sucked). My expectations are low.
This film, directed by the infamous Uwe Boll, whos work ranges from solid, thought-provoking and intense or hilarious(Darfur, Rampage, Postal) to damnright incoherant disjointed messes (Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne). Some of his movies are laugh-at bad (house of the dead). The Star, Dulph Lundgren, is also a cult-action actor of the same calabor, from ranging from rocky IV(4), to things like Master of the universe. This film is undoubtedly trying to bank on "The Expendables Actor" effect which brought him back into the spot light. Also present is other actors including ex-model Natassia Malthe.
So then onto the movie and the Plot: Granger (dulph), is a vet who teaches Karate in a contempory setting.Then one day, uninspired ninja's attack him in this house, and he is pulled back through time vortex to fufill an ancient prophecy.Read more ›
Though the movie was not in the commercial spotlight, it did feature Dolph lundgren. Everyone who enjoys Dolph's style will be pleased with this film, as it displays a character that is closer to his personality, I think, than any other role he has previously taken. He made me laugh more than once with his clever quips.
If you like fantasy movies, action movies, or any movie with a compelling story, this film should find a home in your collection, and fit in nicely. I love the adventure, and the unbelievable twists that make a fantasy a true fantasy. I love the dragon, which was rendered skillfully and looked very real.
As much as I want to tell you exactly what happens, I won't. I am recommending this movie for anyone, it is appropriate for your teenagers as well. Watch it with an open mind, it will take your imagination for a drive.

Almost nothing to do with the first movie. Weird "back to the future" plot. Odd but somewhat interesting. If you like Dolph Lundgren you may enjoy this film.Published 10 months ago by Jaxn Rouxbi
