First lets say i am not that much of a Boll hater... He did made 2 very bad Bloodrayne movies, a franchise i truly love, but the third was lets say... acceptable.
I meant i actually enjoy some Boll movies, like Rampage where the dude start killing everybody in a full armor, of course Boll had to put his sucky touch and abuse a shaky cam, but the movie was actually interesting. In the name of the king 1 was also a fair movie, i enjoyed it, and as much as i saw the bad cinematography of alone in the dark i kinda enjoyed the movie for what it was.
This being said, i watch ITNOTK2 with an interest cause one , Dolph is in it, two, Natassia is in it, and three, like i said i enjoyed the first one.
Now i think this movie had a lot of potential, Dolph is very funny and his line aren't bad at all, its kinda made to be a mix of a comedy and an action movie, sure its nothing original but in its own category it could be interesting. Yet there is again the Boll touch that made it borderline average(for me anyway)
1) Shaky Cam again(why Uwe, WHY, it never give anything good) 2) The fort... OH MY GOD it looked so FAKE and CHEAP !!! 3) CGI... didn't look much impressive really, cheap CGI effects.
As for the king, i recognize the actor, i don't think he was bad in itself, it probably come from the fact that for a King, he look pathetic, his clothing is terrible, the fort look like its made of cardboard and he barely seem to have 100 mens...
So what can i say... its signed Boll... I don't understand how Natassia love so much to work with him... she is a good actress and before she started to work for Boll she was actually getting fun and interesting roles...
