There has been a glut of films with a medieval setting recently, plus Game of Thrones and together with the Skyrim game the bar has been raised very high.
Sadly In The Name Of The King 2 fails to set any new standards. The story follows Dolph Lundgren's Grainger (a retired US Marine in the modern world) as he is pulled back through a vortex to a time which appears to be some years after the original Name Of The King. The plot meanders around and while there's a few twists it's not hard to spot these in advance. Various themes are started but not really expanded on or seen through to conclusion. The ending had me going, "Uhh, is that it?" Almost as if they ran out of money or what we got was a much abridged version of the director's original vision.
The remaining cast seem to have been largely picked from Eastern European C list and are so wooden they make Dolph Lundgren look like Oscar material.
Must have been really low budget as when we eventually get to see a dragon, the effects aren't even as good as BBC's Merlin series.
All in all, I was quite disappointed. If you want to see a movie that takes a character out of the modern day into an ancient time, Army of Darkness takes some beating.
