Dolph Lundgren stars as a modern-day warrior who travels back through time in this action-packed follow-up to the original In The Name Of The King. Granger (Lundgren), a lethal, ex-Special Forces soldier, finds himself transported back to a mystical age of sorcery, dragons and savage hand-to-hand combat. He has been summoned to defeat the forces of darkness and fulfill an ancient prophecy. But as he fights his way to the truth, Granger learns no one can be trusted -- and one wrong move could cost him not only his life, but the future of his world.

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.
His lines are sarcastic and he seems to enjoy playing a very different role than his normal action movies (except for The Final Inquiry) which was almost completely a silent supporting part for Dolph.
It's nice to see an actor experiment and try to avoid the pitfalls of playing the exact same type of role just because it made money.
I believe that Dolph is a true inspiration and has a positive attitude.
As for the director, the film is enjoyable with minor flaws due to a limited budget.
Overall, it is a decent movie to watch-
This is a four star movie
