Once I loved a man, who I thought the gods themselves had sent me. I loved the whole world because he was in it. Long we were parted but I could bear it because I knew he would return one day. But when he came again it was as if his heart had been wiped clean. I loved him as I had but he did not love me. We were strangers as before we had met.

A poor man's lord of the rings but enjoyable nonetheless
Based on the myth that influenced Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, The Ring of the Nibelungs shares many similarities with the great man's work.
Although limited I thought the special effects were excellent particularly the dragon. Siegfrid's accent was off putting but no less so than the posh English accents that many of the cast had considering this is meant to be set in Scandinava.
If you like fantasy and Lord of the Rings you will enjoy this. The soundtrack is very haunting and compliments the film very well. Kristanna Loken is gorgeous and although her acting isn't up to scratch, she does look great on screen ;)
