In the Name of the King

My first impressions of Uwe Boll’s new release, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Seige Tale:

More enjoyable the Eragon. Uwe Boll’s most competant work. A film in which Matthew Lillard is not the most jarring element. That honor is reserved for Ray Liotta. Jason Statham carries the film quite well, and is a big reason for the film not causing the same pain as House of the Dead. Supporting players Ron Perlman and John Rhys-Davies also do their best with the material. That said, the Boll trademark lack of pace and inability to know when a scene ends are still firmly present in this 120 minutes theatrical cut. The film, amazingly, lacked substantial flashbacks.

Also, the end credits feature some perfectly appropriate tracks from Blind Guardian and Hammerfall.
