Editorial Reviews

A simple family man (Jason Statham) is forced to take up arms after an evil sorcerer (Ray Liotta) unleashes an army of bloodthirsty beasts that destroy his small village and capture his beautiful wife (Claire Forlani). As the marauding forces overrun the land in an effort to overthrow the king (Burt Reynolds) and his loyal magus (John Rhys-Davies), the once peace-loving peasant and his two companions (Ron Perlman and Will Sanderson) venture into perilous, uncharted terrain on a daring rescue mission. In this breathtaking fantasy adventure, director Uwe Boll conjures up a medieval world filled with royal treachery, dark magic and spectacular battles, all set against some of the most awe-inspiring vistas ever captured on film.

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

"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.

Now you would have to a true optimist to think a Uwe Boll movie based on a video game would be worth watching. And if you were said optimist you would have been sadly let down after watching this sad excuse for a movie. If you manage to sit through the entire movie you are one tough hombre, or blind. Ten minutes in and I was ready to poke my eyes out with my soda straw.

There are some good actors signed up for this movie, which might throw some people. But you can be certain minutes into it that they are just there for a paycheck. The story is cliche and boring, and being it is based on the video game Dungeon Siege that is not surprising. While it might be adequate for a video game based on killing things and taking their treasure to have a barely there story, it doesn't work on the big screen.

If you haven't seen the movie you are a better person for it and it is my solemn responsibility to warn you not to pay actual money for this DVD, or even play money. If you are certain that you want to see it just wait until it finds its way into the 99 cent bin at the local super store. But don't say I didn't warn you.

I usually like fantasy films, even those which are bad - but this thing was too much even for me. Below, more of my impressions. This review in principle doesn't contain SPOILERS.

The story is supposedly about a farmer, who is simply named Farmer (Jason Statham), who lives with his wife (Claire Forlani) and son in a kind of medieval kingdom called Ehb, ruled by aging king Konreid (Burt Reynolds). Then one day the kingdom of Ehb is attacked by the army of a certain Gallian (Ray Liotta), a warlock exiled from the country long time ago. This will of course gravely affect everybody in Ehb, including Farmer and his family. I will say no more about the story.

The story is quite simple and we heard, read and saw it many times - but still, when they are well told, even the oldest and most known stories can be greatly enjoyed. Sadly, in this film, it is absolutely NOT the case. All characters are pale, the acting is wooden, dialogs are without interest, there is no humour, every next scene can be anticipated half an hour earlier, there is nothing original or surprising, action scenes are just a painful repetition of the main hero destroying everything in his path, bad guys are just sword fodder and the main villain is a sad, pathetic joke. All this makes this film so horribly BORING that it was an ordeal to watch it.

The director Uwe Boll got a big budget - 60 millions USD! - and wasted every cent of it, as we don't see anything worth that kind of money on the screen. He also managed to muster some good actors (Jason Statham, Burt Reynolds, Ray Liotta, Ron Perlman, Claire Forlani, John Rhys-Davies) and three pretty girls (Leelee Sobieski, Kristanna Loken, Tania Saulnier) - and was completely unable to use them!
