Extended director's cut of Uwe Boll's fantasy/adventure adaptation of the video game 'Dungeon Siege'. In the kingdom of Ehb, Farmer (Jason Statham) leads a simple life, eking out a living off the land and providing for his family. But when the kingdom is invaded by the ruthless Gallian (Ray Liotta), who imprisons the King (Burt Reynolds) and abducts his wife Solano (Claire Forlani), Farmer sets out in hot pursuit.

I'll be honest - I didn't think this was too bad. Ok, so it shamelessly rips off the million times better LOTR movies, but it was fairly enjoyable! I grew up in the time of Hawk The Slayer, Beastmaster, Sword And The Sorceror, Dragonslayer, Krull etc. Trust me, some of these were no Lord Of The Rings either! For every Conan the Barbarian, Excalibur or Dragonslayer (classics!) there was The Iron Master, The Sword Of The Barbarians & Ator The Fighting Eagle!!! Red Sonja and Willow were a bit iffy too, to say nothing of Sword Of The Valiant...
At least, this is innocent of any movie or album's cardinal sin, in that it is never boring! There's plenty of action, the CG is decent in most places - there's some reasonably impressive 'Marching Army' visuals, and the battle choreography is ok, apart from some kung fu elements which are misplaced. Have to say that the 'evil' army, a beast like race known as The Krug are basically a rip off of The Orcs, right down to the subterranean caverns that they live in! The Krug make up & costumes are a bit shoddy and won't give Weta Workshop any sleepless nights!
At least, the armour & costumes are more impressive for the 'good' army!
It's not as dark as The Rings epics and certainly suitable for younger viewers - there's no sex or strong violence, the battle scenes are relativeley bloodless. The film is often light hearted, and after a bit of a shaky start, improves considerably with time
It's basically like a pantomime - lot's of well known faces turn up, in something that is just out to entertain!
Jason Statham; unusually cast but more than ok as the hero, Burt Reynolds; improves as the story evolves, John Rhys-Davies; always good in any movie!
Kristanna Loken; as gorgeous as in Terminator 3.

In the world of heroic fantasy there are very few really good movies outside of the LOTR franchise. We watched this movie in a double bill along side 10000BC and to be 100% honest there was no one there who felt this was the weaker of the two!

The cast is good, the story though not groundbreaking does career along at a good pace with enogh going on that I did not become disengaged.

In short if you like your high fantasy then you will probably like this.

If you take the rather sad but not uncommon approach that all fantasy is by default rather rubbish and only something spectacularly good is comparable to mediocre offerings in other genres then this is probably not hte movie for you.

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.

There are only two things that you need to know about this movie.
1. It is a Uwe Boll film. Uwe Boll is universally recognized as one of the worst hacks in film history having created such great hits as House of the Dead, Bloodrayne, and Alone In The Dark. He buys the rights to recognizable games and then makes a movie which is really a generic combination of the best scenes from other movies thrown randomly together. Although his films rarely even make their money back he took advantage of a German tax loophole (since closed) which allowed you to get tax credits for your film whether it makes a profit or not.

2. The clever goblin strategy is to light themselves on fire and then catapult themselves at the enemy.

If either of those things sound attractive to you then this is a movie to check out. I love the sheer irrationality and unintentional humor of a good Boll film. This film represents his largest-scale production since the film he's choosing to rip off is the Lord of the Rings, complete with an irrelevant Helm's Deep raining fight sequence ripoff that has nothing to do with any of the main characters and doesn't affect the plot in any way. His villain is the grossly miscast Ray Liotta who has gone down a long way since Goodfellas. His every scene is comic gold since he is actually trying to overact and failing. So check out this film if that's your thing. If you only like films that have such overrated features as 'quality', 'originality' or 'plot' then check out some other film.
