Mathayus's sorceress-queen is killed by a pest which ravaged his kingdom until it fell. Feeling guilty and a failure, the Akkadian resumed the life of mercenary. He's hired by Horus, king of the now dominant Near eastern kingdom, to help out defend the palace of Hindu king Ramusan, guardian of the Book of the Death, the last ally barring the bid for Hrus's throne by his rogue brother Talus, whose raids in the Far East yielded the largest army ever. Mathuyas is instructed to team up with simpleton Teutonic giant Olaf. Ramusan can't pay them the promised gold, but offers the hand of his daughter Silda, whose portrait shows a priceless medallion. Their fight is complicated by the mysterious Cobra, hired by Talus, who captured the princess, so they pair pretends to enter Talus's service, but finds out about an even more devious deception, while Talus captures the book and thus is able to conjure the warrior ghosts.

Talus and Mathayus both use telescopes. Mathayus uses a crystal that he moves to focus. Talus has a glass lens telescope which was not invented until around 1608. This is about 2500 years before the movie is supposed to take place. See more »
[to Silda as they battle]
You want Mathyus, but he will never staty with you. He's one of the darkness, like us. He only wishes to die and you are killing your people.

This movie has some terrible acting by Victor Webster and they try to add humor which ends up being very dry. After 10 minutes watching you feel like just turning it off. I gave it a chance and watch the entire movie. A complete waste of time watching this movie.
Before watching this movie look and see if anyone has one good thing to say about this movie. Its the worse movie I have seen in a long time that I'm glad I did not purchase this movie. Its not even worth being placed on the $5 clearance shelf at any store.
be warned this movie is not worth watching at all!!
Wasn't one time where anything good or decent happened and you will just be searching the entire movie for something to validate watching the movie. movie for the trash bin for sure.
