Very best movie i ever watch
I wanted to but couldn't!
One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.
This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
An ex-Special Forces soldier gets thrown back to medieval times to fulfill an ancient prophecy and ends up finding redemption for his own battlefield experiences. In the Name of the King: Two Worlds is a sequel to a pretty forgettable film that starred Jason Statham and this time he is being replaced by Jason Statham a capable action hero who unfortunately doesn't get to do much with such a silly and boring concept and people will probably forget that this movie even existed in a matter of hours, minutes or days the most.

The first In the Name of the King movie was a bit silly, but not bad as sword and sorcery stuff goes - and Uwe somehow got a whole cast full of real actors to and decent enough effects people to work on it.This abomination, on the other hand, was so terrible that I, who can usually find some value is just about anything, gave up in disgust after that first half hour or so - life is too short to waste time on stuff this bad.Even Dolph Lundgren, who can usually do a fair impersonation of a wall, was given absolutely nothing to work with here - and I'd never heard of anybody else in the cast.Rewatching the original In the Name of the King is a much better use of your time than trying to watch this thing.
First of: We bought this movie because we wanted to try out a 3D movie. I did like the first film (Statham) and Lundgreen is an OK actor - we knew what to expect. There is no way one can take this movie serious - and it never claims to be one. Dolph has some dry humor, the ladies are nice to look at, it even has some some story and a few amusing situations. No, it was not a waste of money but it's no A-movie either. The story is known from the summary, so I will not go into it. The only thing disturbing was too much camera movement sometimes - that gives you a headache in a 3D movie. The effects are good as it was shot in 3D not after wards altered. Sometimes the scenes appeared like in a computer game but still, I'll probably watch it again in half a year or so. Don't expect too much and you will have a nice TV-evening. Better than some crap that's around or on TV at any given night.
I loved the first one with Statham, so I had at least some hopes for this one. I was sadly mistaken. While the plot for the movie had a good amount of promise, Dolf's acting and the directors' directing left much to be desired. The unknown supporting cast actually performed their parts fairly, but Dolf plodded through his. Get a much better director, a bigger budget and someone like Liam Neeson to play the lead and this movie could be quite good. If you have a choice between doing the laundry or this, get your clothes cleaned. What cgi there was in the movie was so so. The choice of scenery, or location of the film if you may, was quite nice. I think the worst parts were that Dolf wasn't very heroic, camera was jittery like a hand-held and the plot twists were weak at best.
