Storyline

In the world of MIDNIGHT, it is a time of overwhelming darkness. After three ages of scheming and war, the dark god Izrador has finally defeated the heroes and armies of the free races. Now, he rules the world of Aryth with an iron fist. Enslaved under the Shadow, the race of men leads an oppressed existence, and the elves and dwarves have retreated to distant forests and mountains, where their desperate resistance is slowly succumbing to the unyielding might of the Shadow. Investigating the disappearance of a legate priest, the infamous Mag Kiln has been ordered by the church to travel to the small Erenlander town of Blackweir. There, he soon becomes entangled in an old mystery and begins to uncover not only the forbidden legacy of the town, but the malevolent, prophetic force that grows within him. MIDNIGHT CHRONICLES is the epic narrative that tells the tale of two legendary characters -- one for the cause of good, the other for the cause of evil. This is the story of their rise, ...

Aplaudable effort for us fantasy addicts...
22 September 2009 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Quite simply:

WATCH IT:

-if you're a die-hard fan of fantasy, especially the D&D kind (even if you thought the two d&d movies were shyte - they were); -if you like to support the underdog and can overlook issues like low production values or at times crappy acting and scripting; -if you know that this movie is the beginning of a series and therefore will leave a lot of plot points unsolved.

AVOID IT:

-if you're the ebert type nazi critic (the movie isn't that well done); -if you need explosions and dragon duels to keep awake (none of that); -if you have no idea what a d20 is (as the movie doesn't do a terrific job at setting the mood, like jackson's lotr does).

I personally liked it and will definitely watch whatever else comes next (sequel or series), and would be mighty miffed if it turned out to be a non-sequitur. But I wouldn't choose it for a social night-in (yeah, hard to be the lone nerd in a social circle).

If anyone involved in the movie reads this, could you make the orcs a bit more articulate? They're grunts rather than mere beasts.
