Storyline
In the world of MIDNIGHT, it is a time of overwhelming darkness. After three ages of scheming and war, the dark god Izrador has finally defeated the heroes and armies of the free races. Now, he rules the world of Aryth with an iron fist. Enslaved under the Shadow, the race of men leads an oppressed existence, and the elves and dwarves have retreated to distant forests and mountains, where their desperate resistance is slowly succumbing to the unyielding might of the Shadow. Investigating the disappearance of a legate priest, the infamous Mag Kiln has been ordered by the church to travel to the small Erenlander town of Blackweir. There, he soon becomes entangled in an old mystery and begins to uncover not only the forbidden legacy of the town, but the malevolent, prophetic force that grows within him. MIDNIGHT CHRONICLES is the epic narrative that tells the tale of two legendary characters — one for the cause of good…

User Review

No plot development.

Rating: 2/10

I saw this on the the TV 'on demand' from Virgin-Media. I only watched
from seeing the high votes on here (silly me). The VFX, sets, and most
costumes were really good! They shined away as the background to
terrible dialogue, bored actors, and some very dodgy camera work. It
was also very boring, it tried to keep you interested by promising a
move in the plot, but no. Even the so called witty/funny guy struggles
through fun-less lines. They all just read it like they were in some
soulless place, and embarrassing soulless place. Every time something
builds up to a thickened plot possibility, it skips to another thread,
and even introduces pointless new characters all along the way.
…Until right at the end, when nothing happens and it just stops!
Daily TV soaps are better written than this. Too many writers with too
few good ideas perhaps?

I gave it 2/10 (which means to me 10/10 for FX guys, and 0 for
everything else)…Sorry, but I'll have my money back thanks.

Funny bit in film: There's an Elf-man type that sits about a lot in a
cave frowning, being completely useless, and at one point there's a
drunk that's shouting and giving the posse away to the towns people,
and the Elf just stands there watching, then someone asks to borrow his
bow, and the Elf just hands it over without much persuading then runs
away, why the guy doesn't follow them, I don't know. Then guy falls
down a well with a great splashing sound, where we see him at the
bottom of the DRY well, with no water around at all!
