The trailer to this is not what it seems
25 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's really irritating when you find out the whole journey was basically for nothing and that is what this film is. Almost everything about it is pointless and redundant. It has some okay sword fighting, but that is very few and nothing about this movie was really engrossing. The trailer to this makes it seem like a complete different movie, but it's not. None of the characters really stood out and I just didn't give a crap what happens, and the plot isn't really convoluted or anything but felt all over the place. The idea and plot didn't even seem all that original and boring for the most part, the film tries to make the movie not bad as it may seem with the ending. But even the ending is basically WTF and not in a good way either.

4.3/10
