By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2014
Format: DVD
Two minutes and sixteen seconds. That is exactly how long it took me to realize that "In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds" was going to be an epic suckfest.

Specifically, that was when a Xena-style sorceress eluded a pair of Robin Hood ninjas, and ran right into the street of a modern city. In his ongoing quest to make my brain melt, Uwe Boll has churned out yet another ghastly sequel to one of his horrid movies, dragging a perpetually befuddled-looking Dolph Lundgren back into Ye Olde Renfaire surroundings.

Grizzled veteran Granger (Dolph Lundgren) is pulled through a vortex by a mysterious sorceress, who then dies after proclaiming that he's part of some prophecy. He finds himself centuries in the past, where hooded assassins are trying to kill him. King Raven (Lochlyn Munro) tells him that he's the destined Chosen One of a prophecy who is the only one who can kill the Dark Mother (Christina Jastrzembska) and stop the Dark Ones, blah blah. It's all very generic.

So he's sent out on a mission with a bunch of soldiers and a sexy lady doctor named (I kid you not) Manhatten (Natassia Malthe). Does she have sisters named Brooklyn and Harlem? Anyway, Granger and the soldiers fight the Dark Ones on their way to where the Dark Mother is, but soon Granger discovers the truth about the Dark Mother and King Raven -- meaning he must now fulfill the prophecy in a different way.

"In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds" is a lazy, LAZY movie. Everything about it is halfhearted -- the acting, the plotting, the backstory, and even the fricking prophecy that the whole plot revolves around.

In the Name of the King 2 is a Wisecrackin' Good Time! Jan. 2 2012
By jamespen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I'd agree with the other reviewers that said that Dolph really holds this film together. Probably more than anything else, Dolph Lundgren is the reason I bought this film before seeing it. Dolph's performance does not disappoint. He's always been a larger than life presence on screen, and this film is no exception. He's also smart enough to not take the material too seriously and, therefore, have a good time with it. His smart-aleck delivery of many of his lines is right on and often very funny, intentionally so.

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.

Campy B-movie fun Dec 20 2011
By Deadagain33 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
After reading a reviewer with "Hated the first, and this one was worse!" in the title and "This one made the first one look great" in said reviews body of text, I decided I would take a go at reviewing this peice with some theme of coherance.
Upon rating movies, many questions must be asked. Is it comparitive, and to what? The Transformers Trilogy looks like the godfather or LOTR trilogy in comparison to the Troll or evil bong trilogy. So do you look to quality of scripting, camera shots, pacing and acting etc? Or do you rate on pure entertainment value, IE how much you like it? My awnser is a mixture of all 3.

For starters, this is a movie shot on a $7.5 million dollar budget, independantly financed straight to DVD, and belonging to the fantasy action adventure genre. It contains a dragon. Similar in those terms is Eragon, a $100 million movie(that sucked). My expectations are low.

This film, directed by the infamous Uwe Boll, whos work ranges from solid, thought-provoking and intense or hilarious(Darfur, Rampage, Postal) to damnright incoherant disjointed messes (Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne). Some of his movies are laugh-at bad (house of the dead). The Star, Dulph Lundgren, is also a cult-action actor of the same calabor, from ranging from rocky IV(4), to things like Master of the universe. This film is undoubtedly trying to bank on "The Expendables Actor" effect which brought him back into the spot light. Also present is other actors including ex-model Natassia Malthe.

So then onto the movie and the Plot: Granger (dulph), is a vet who teaches Karate in a contempory setting.Then one day, uninspired ninja's attack him in this house, and he is pulled back through time vortex to fufill an ancient prophecy. This is the premise which is overkilled a little, its GOOD V BAD. War torn world of Ehb needs saving by killing a evil overlord, which, being 50 years after the 1st movie, hasn't much relation but Granger is a decendant of the king bloodline.

Now, Dulphs acting in places was humourus. He looked out of place, not only with his modern clothing but his general attitude. This looked like a pay-check for him, where he appeared to have fun on the way. As with the first, some nice scenary's present along with Authentic costumes, but it is hampered by its budget somewhat. The Sleek Visuals does wonders in propelling the film and hiding its low-budget roots, and its in all technically competant if a little bland in its music and editing. At the end a hastily-esembled CGI Dragon appeared. It was slightly Anorexic, but totally AWESOME. LOL what is this movie? In the end all is resolved and goes back to normal. An Arc we see so often, but not like this where it turns into a conscious self-parady of hollywood conventions.

In fact, The commentary consists of amusing rants on the hollywood-film indistry by Uwe Boll along with some background on making the movie.

All in all, this is a good movie for its budget, totally applicable to drunken watching with mates or lighter viewing with children. Fantacy sword violence, with little in the way of sex or profanity. If you liked the first, your enjoy this one although admitadly is isn't as good or as much fun. It's good for what it is, but won't win awards. Mediocre.

Dolph made it watchable Dec 29 2011
By M. Abrahamian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Everyone is bashing this movie mainly because they don't like uwe boll. I only watched this because of Dolph. Not the best or worst movie i've watched but Dolph's punch lines made me laugh. If your a fan of Dolph its worth watching. It only had a budget of 7 million so what do people expect production wise. My only complaint is the camera work...a little to unsteady at times. Leave reality behind for 90 minutes and watch it for what it is.

A nice story line Jan. 20 2012
By Amber MacDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I did not know what to expect when I popped this movie into my player. Admittedly, none of my friends or family have seen or even heard of it, which is weird, considering it's a sequel. Such is usually the case with straight to DVD movies. There is generally a smaller budget than big ticket films, meaning less advertisement, among other omissions. This is definitely one of those movies. This is not a bad thing, as it seems to work for this movie.

Though the movie was not in the commercial spotlight, it did feature Dolph lundgren. Everyone who enjoys Dolph's style will be pleased with this film, as it displays a character that is closer to his personality, I think, than any other role he has previously taken. He made me laugh more than once with his clever quips.

If you like fantasy movies, action movies, or any movie with a compelling story, this film should find a home in your collection, and fit in nicely. I love the adventure, and the unbelievable twists that make a fantasy a true fantasy. I love the dragon, which was rendered skillfully and looked very real.

As much as I want to tell you exactly what happens, I won't. I am recommending this movie for anyone, it is appropriate for your teenagers as well. Watch it with an open mind, it will take your imagination for a drive.

Enjoyably Bad Jan. 3 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
After the hilariously and hideously bad first film, this second episode actually doesn't look so bad. Okay, it's still not good, but it's campy, enjoyable fun anyway. Dolph Lundgren is pretty wooden and looking old too, but he's likable and has fun with his silly role. And Natassia Malthe is pretty darn fine. Oh,and there's a dragon! Campy, low-budget fun.
