Did You Know?
Shot in 2005.
At the beginning of the battle in the woods, the command given to the Archers is "Fire!" This command is derived from the use of fire weapons (cannons etc), which are not present in the film's setting. The correct command would be "Release!"
I knew you'd come.
I told you I would.
I mean, I felt it. I felt it before you came.
You are developing your powers well, Muriella. Our time together is paying off!
Who is Uwe Boll and what did we do to him to deserve this?
I went into this expecting a bad movie, you could say I was hoping for
the best but expecting the worst. I'm a fan of Jason Statham which made
me want to see it despite my expectations, plus I work at a theatre and
see movies for free which makes me less picky about the movies I watch.
Now I don't typically leave reviews for movies, but after seeing this I
felt that I needed to warn people. Up until tonight, I'd never seen a
movie directed/produced by this Uwe Boll guy and believe me, as I write
this I wish that was still the case. There are no redeeming qualities
to this movie and you realize it within the first ten minutes. The cast
is brutal, Statham, Liota and Reynolds are all laughable as the main
characters. The evil army of 'Krug' reminded me of the dudes in monkey
suits in the early Planet of the Apes movies. During action scenes you
see the same shot over and over again as if they only had one shot of
'bad guy hit by arrow'. Even the props were bad, Stathams sword looked
like something you'd give a six year old on Halloween.
I don't even know if I can accurately put into words how bad this movie
is. The best way to describe this pile is to piture you and your
friends trying to remake 'lord of the rings' in your backyard, because
what you ended up with would be of similar quality.
If you read this review, don't make the same mistake I did. Don't watch
it to see if it is as bad as the guy on the IMDb said it was. This
movie should only be shown to criminals in jail as further punishment
for their crimes.
