As has already been pointed out, this movie is the pilot episode of "Midnight Chronicles", a future (let's hope) TV series based on the Roleplaying Game "Midnight". It's very different from the traditional fantasy movies: there are only two fighting scenes, and the first one is very short and... well, lame. However it's a must see for the fans of the RPG game and for those who are looking for something different.

But here's a warning for non-english speakers: this version of the DVD has no subtitles whatsoever (not even in english). Just so you know.

Easily the worst film I've seen in a long, long time.

From the cover and desciption, you'd think you were getting an epic LOTR type of film, in fact you're getting a cheap, poorly written, badly acted steamer of a film with no redeeming features at all.

The cover shows dragons, battalions of orcs letting off clusters of arrows, armies of men marching off to battle, flags held high..... none of which are in the film.

This in itself is a disgrace, but, what makes it worse, the story is dull beyond belief, the `action' scenes are so bad they are laughable and the acting is on par with one of those cheap US soaps.

People moaned about In The Name Of The King.
That was like Citizen Kane compared to this rot.

Do not buy this, I implore you. You'll just encourage a sequel and you can't hate the world that much.

Please.
For the love of God..........

The film gives you a quick background into the good vs. evil aspect then thrusts you into a story where it takes you a while to figure out the good guys from the bad guys. It copies some of the LOTR aspects in that it includes orcs (bad), elves (good) and humans on both sides. Priests who serve the Shadow are called "legates" with Charles Hubbell playing the lead role of questioning loyalty.

There is a prophecy which The Shadow fears, that is where a group of diverse characters lead by one man on a quest will overthrow him and rule Middle Earth er uh.. Baldur's Gate, no wait the world of Aryth. The one legate side kick had a sense of humor and was the only worthwhile character in the group.

The dialouge was otherwise dull and dry: "He has help me hide what must remain hidden." Or "In the shadow of the shadow he shall dance with the beast..." There is one scene with the side kick and Chuzara where we get to see the microphone overhead. The elves use bows (how did they come up with that?) and speak with bad poetic syntax. We never got to see the "little people."

Very little fighting. This appears to be just the first part. A real disappointment of a film. The acting was sad too.

No swear words, sex, or nudity.

This is based on the setting for a role play game called Midnight. The premise is that the Dark God was cast down onto the world and then sealed off. This has the effect of the mortals being cut off from the other Gods. The Dark God Izrador wages war and eventually wins. In Lord of the Rings terms Sauron won - advance 100 years.

This is a very small budget film, more accurately a pilot that the makers hope to turn into a series. It obviously does not have the gloss of the Middle Earth films. At times the budget shows but there are some nice effects in there. I thought the acting was fine, in terms of TV grade, there's no Hollywood stars here.

It's not perfect but a decent attempt. I want to see more, preferably as a series. There is a rich detailed setting that could really be fleshed in a series. It gets 3 stars. One deducted as it does lack a little gloss and the other deducted for the cover as whilst it's accurate to the setting, you don't see anything like that in the film

I am not a 'Gamer' so i had no idea about this movie. I suspect other reviews are correct in the assumption that you need to play the 'Game' to appreciate this Movie. At best it is a second rate 'LOTR' wannabe knockoff. The Actors have had a tall order trying to convince this viewer of the poorly written 'Script' and diabolical dialogue. For a Low Budget Effort, its a poor result, I suggest The Whole Production Team go back to the Drawing Board and hit themselves over the heads with it. It gets two stars just for being so very very amateurish.Its so bad i laughed several times at the 'Serious 'speeches. Good Grief people...do not waste your very precious time in viewing this...read a book instead...any book will do.
