Poorly done but could've been worse
19 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Clash of Empires is not an irredeemable movie in any way, the scenery was quite nice, a couple of the fight sequences are edge-of-your-seat quality, there is a good lead performance and the princess is simply beautiful. For those redeeming qualities however there are a lot of things that Clash of Empires doesn't do well. The movie can have a frenzied look to it, and the rushed and underexplained story(just where did the romance come from?) is a further indication of Clash of Empires being done in haste. The dialogue is very stilted and sometimes incomprehensible, while the special effects apart from some average-at-best ones at the start are very cheaply rendered. There are no characters to root for, they are almost comic-book-like in quality, the music is generic, the direction is of the kind that has heart and passion at least but not the skill and the acting apart from the lead is vapid and going-through-the-motions feeling.

All in all, Clash of Empires is very poorly done stuff but it definitely could have been much worse. 3/10 Bethany Cox
