Stathalm couldn't save this movie from the rest of the cast... Burt Reynolds is the worst king ever. His performance lacks any effort resulting in a miserable combination of slurs and stumbles that made me uncomfortable. Liotta is downright horrendous as a sorcerer, failing to convey any sense of intelligence into his character. Replace a few actors or maybe some quality control and this could of been entertaining.

This is one of the worse movies ever! Don't waste your money.

The problem with In the Name of the King - Pointless Video Game Movie Adaptation is not its actors - some of whom are quite good in their own rights. It's not the source material - Dunegon Siege, while no sprawling epic, is well known among video game fans. The problem, like with the movies Blood Rayne and Alone In The Dark, is the director, Uwe Boll. Mr. Boll is a charlatan at best, a money-grubbing scam artist posing as a film director at worst. He kicks out these mindless action films using tax loopholes to fund them, then banks on a big opening weekend to make up the rest before critics and filmgoers alike realize that he's made another stinker. Don't encourage Uwe Boll. Don't buy this movie. Don't even rent this movie. And, for the love of cinema, don't pay to see anything he makes in the theater.

Boll's uneven, poorly shot, incredibly badly directed, dragging mess can't be saved by it's struggling cast. The directing is at best disorganized, uninspired and shot angle selection is poor. Too much exposition throughout that is unnecessary and other things left out that could have driven the story more. There is some decent acting at times, and the costumes aren't bad. Most of the cast does the best they can with what they have to work with. Some of the lines are fun, but most are hackneyed and inconsistant in tone and feel. This must be Ray Liotta's worst acting effort ever, but you get the feeling that it's his direction from Bolle and weakness with Blue-Screen acting that are his biggest problems. Matthew Lillard isn't sure wether he's doing a comedy or a drama through most of the movie, which I attribute to Bolle's bad directing. The "special effects" aren't. With some re-writes and a capable Director this film could have been a good one. Overall the film is mostly painful or boring to watch. Bolle should be sweeping a backlot somewhere to better utilize his skills.

Though this movie could be considered B grade at best, I did like it fairly well...I liked the actors in it, I liked the premise of the movie...I thought it was interesting, and some of the special effects were pretty cool. Jason Statham was pretty awesome in it...and he kicked a lot of @$$. The gripes I have for this movie was 1). It could have been made to be a lot better than it was, in my opinion. 2). Some of the acting was kinda sub par. 3). There were a few parts that seemed a bit cheesy. Overall, the movie seemd a little bit more 90s in quality, but it was pretty decent. I still kinda liked it. It's not one I would fly right out and buy, but maybe used one day. Check it out...judge for yourself.
