Not going to lie, when I saw the first teaser I wanted to hate this movie. The original is just such a classic. One of the few movies from I can still watch and genuinely enjoy without relying on nostalgia for the game it is based on. That said, I really enjoyed this movie. While I love everything about the first one; the effects, the one liners, the violence,and the campiness, I didn't find myself comparing the new one to the old one when I watched it.
In my opinion, the new additions to the story really help make it more of a complete story, one based closer to our current reality than the original movie was. Nothing felt forced and there was a much better explanation for why everything was happening and certain key players motivations.
It's definitely not the fun campy movie it once was, but it throws out a few fun nods to the original classic In the Name of the King. I found this movie to have more heart, and for a man to truly control his dark side as a contract killer.
The action was top notch. Most of the CGI looked very natural, and the fight scenes were intense. I really liked what they did this time around.
I wouldn't go in expecting the original In the Name of the King, but I found this new film to be one the most enjoyable action movies I've seen in a while. I look forward to another possible sequel.
