In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale

Published by Benjamin 'Twitchy' Strack under on Sunday, May 18, 2008
Story - 1.9
Complex, multi-leveled. Just like a good fantasy book.
Cinematography - 1.9
Simply Beautiful. Stunning CGI works, especially for a smaller-budget film. Great shots, great coloring. Final army battle is akin to Helm's Deep from LoTR:TT.
Acting - 1.8
HUGE list of actors, mostly 'B' actors, a few 'A' list. Throughout the talent, the weak point is played by Matthew Lillard, who still maintains a mediocre quality of acting.
Overall Effect - 3.9
Great movie. Fun, exciting. If you love fantasy or LoTR, its on that scale without being a knock-off. Story follows Jason Stathom, but he is far from the only lead character.

Total Score:
9.5 out of 10

Recommended if looking for: Fantasy, Action, Epic Battles, LoTR-style movies.
