This movie is a critical case of how to fuck up a huge budget through terrible directing skills, which may not come as a surprise to those familiar with Master Boll's work. A 60-million-dollar budget, an unbelievable cast for a video game adaptation, impressive scenery, decent special effects, and all the elements/stereotypes of heroic fantasy are there : how the fuck could it ever go that wrong ???
I mean, there's nothing actually good to be said about the experience of watching the movie : the actors are all clearly cashing in , fully aware of the quality of the movie they're in; the story is totally predictable and far too convoluted for its own good; and the cinematographer apparently died before shooting began (too bad he was also going to color correct the movie...) !
Anyway, here's the short version to give you a taste of what you're definitely not missing out on.
