2.0 out of 5 stars nice blu-ray visuals but compressed audio May 30 2010
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
In the Name of the King has some great scenery, design, and action, that look great on blu-ray, but the audio is heavily compressed (loud effects, soft dialogue). Since sadly, there are no subtitles on this bare bones disc, the lack of audio quality is beyond disappointing. The fantasy medieval story itself is fairly entertaining and some big name actors lend credibility, but overall this "period" film is uneven and has contemporary casual moments instead of being consistent to form (any form) - therefore despite some cool sequences, it's often difficult to maintain a caring interest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tragic magic March 4 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This movie is so unbelievably bad that I have to break it down into parts for this review.

Overview:

Based on a video game, it comes over as The Lord of the Rings lite, complete with Orc-like Krugs, John Rhys Davies, and a guy with a Legolas hairstyle. Bad guy Gallian (Ray Liotta) swirls around in clouds of smoke, and does his business through the eyes, ears and lips of really big Krugs who ride horses.

The only redeeming parts are the fight scenes with Statham, and even the battle scenes get monotonous after a while. And speaking of the battle scenes, we get the infantry and the archers and so on, but why do we have ninjas and Amazonian tree women in the mix-up? (Mind you, Kristanna Loken of the L-Word looks really good wrapped in leaves)

Leelee Sobieski is underutilized as the daughter of Rhys Davies character Merick, but comes into her own at the end, while Matthew Lillard does his Scooby Doo thing mainly for comic relief.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. A farmer named Farmer farms his land with his family
2. Marauding Krugs under the command of Gallian attack
3. See Farmer fight
4. Fight Farmer, fight
5. Farmer fights in vain, but lives to fight again
6. The King wants Farmer in his army, but Farmer wants to be a one-man show
7. No man is an island
8. Farmer signs up, but has problems with the armor, which doesn't suit his image
9. Battle scenes
10. Change of leadership occurs
11. Grand finale with bad guy proves that books have power
12.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stranger worlds May 27 2012
Format:DVD
I didn't mind the first one and I actually liked it for what it was but in the end, I do realize it was bad.

As of this film it could have been better but it felt rushed and the acting wasn't that great. The only reason I enjoyed it was that the main actor has done some good films. He's the only one that was capable to watch in it otherwise just avoid it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expected more... but was entertained April 21 2008
Format:DVD
Bravo Amanda, you sum up pretty much my own thoughts with a twist of humour. Mind you I gave it a higher score because I guess I enjoyed the movie a little bit more, although I was expecting more with such an impressive cast. Even though I was starting to be very disappointed in Jason Statham's movie roles lately, I truthfully loved him in this one.

I agree that the Ninja dudes do not fit well in this type of movie, and quite frankly, I don't really know why they were even there.

There were other flaws, but in conclusion, I believe it was entertaining and a slightly below-average fantasy movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uwe Boll... Nov. 27 2013
By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The man seems quite incapable of anything remotely cinematic, but this may be the last chance he had to prove he could have some style... and boy did that got out of hand.

From the moment the movie start, one can see the many problems this movie has: bland acting, weird styles of clothing and hair, boring names (the main character is named "Farmer" and is... yes, a farmer). The costumes look like they were cut out of an old 80s catalog and most of the action doesn't make sense because the plot is so overtly uncomplicated and yet takes every decision to make it LOOK like it's complex.

In terms of special features, you don't get much (Uwe Boll isn't keen to including much on his DVDs) but a commentary track (boring, unless you really like the guy), a few deleted scenes (still boring) and a behind the scenes featurette that doesn't help explain anything of why this movie HAD to be made and who had $65 million to lose.

This being labelled "director's cut", you get close to 40 more minutes of nonsense in a way only Uwe Boll can. Make yourself a favor: skip this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and action packed Oct. 23 2013
Format:DVD
Great casts. Both the goodies and the baddies. I am a fan of jason so what ever movies he acted, I won't miss it. I enjoyed it very much. The background is imaginative and costumes match the period.

In the name of the King-Dungeon Siege(released Jan/08)stars Jason Statham as Camden Konreid/Farmer,Claire Forlani as Solana,his wife,a thinner looking John Rhys-Davies as Merick,the magus,Ron Perlman as Norrick,Ray Liotta as Gallian the evil magus,and Burt Reynolds as King Konreid.Set in Medieval times,this is a nice mix of swords and sorcery.It is not Lord of the Rings,by any means,though the director Uwe Bol(the European equivalent of Orson Welles-always trying to make a Citizen Kane) seems to want it to have that kind of scope.It is a tad overly long and the plot has a tendency to meander,but the cinematography and the lush musical background make up for alot of deficiencies.And,hey,Burt Reynolds;it was nice to see Burt back on the screen in a credible role.
The plot involves action man Statham as Farmer;that is his name,as he entered the village he now inhabits as an orphan after a great battle years before,and was adopted by family after family.He lives a quiet existence now with his beautiful wife and his son.However there is trouble in this seemingly peaceful land,as the kings cousin Duke Fallow(Matthew Lillard),wants to rule instead of his uncle Burt.Unbeknownst to everyone he has enlisted an evil magus in the form of Ray Liotta,who has also finagled his way into the heart of the kings daughter Muriella(Leelee Sobieski).
Ray sends his army of Krugs(a cross between an ape and an Orc)to slowly start taking over Burts kingdom by force.One day the Krugs reach the nearby village of his wife's parents,where his wife and son are staying.He sees the smoke and runs to help,along with Ron Perlman,his friend and mentor.They arrive in time to battle with the Krugs and their leader,all of whom are controlled by Liotta.However with the battle over his wife has been taken and his son killed.

1st impression of the Krugs was pathetic! Believe it or not, with all the negativity in the reviews I've seen, I think that it is the Krugs that let the movie down. Read more
