Wastes its potential
9 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Knights of Badassdom" is an ultra-lame parody aimed at all those grown men (and a few women) who regularly dress up like rejects from "The Lord of the Rings" or "Game of Thrones," then venture out to the forest to wield swords and cast spells on one another. However, the boys get more than they bargained for when some actual, honest-to-God demonic creatures decide to crash the festivities, leaving mayhem and destruction in their wake and forcing the LARPers to put into practice what they've been only playacting at all this time.

The presence of Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood"), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"), and Steve Zahn ("Treme") in the cast suggests that the actors got bored one summer just hanging around while their respective series were on hiatus, and this is what they came up with to fill the void. Yet, it really isn't their fault that the movie looks as if it were filmed in someone's - admittedly expansive - backyard. I prefer, instead, to lay a large chunk of the blame on Kevin Dreyfuss and Matt Wall for coming up with the dismal script and director Joe Lynch for putting it before the cameras.

Ah well, you know you're in trouble when the best thing about a movie turns out to be its title.
