This movie was originally conceived as an adaptation for the Marvel Comics character Dr. Strange, also known as Earth's Supreme Sorcerer. Somewhere along the way, the rights to the name were lost and the script was re-tooled. Eventually it was adapted in Doctor Strange (2016). See more »
Jeffrey Combs, interesting premise, so what's the problem?
The story of two 'brothers' battling it out over the fate of the world is always a promising mythical theme. However, the film fails to do more with the story than rehash the typical 'good' vs 'evil' idea. This is a particular waste since Jeffrey Combs' strength lies in playing complex characters, rather than whitebread heroes. There was scope in this story to explore issues of human prejudice and the obligations of power, and to flesh out Kabal's motivations more. However, the straightforward story left the plot feeling a little spare. Nonetheless, some of the sets were nice (eg. Mordrid's study), Yvette Nipar and Jay Acovone do a good job as the conflicting police workers, and any movie with Jeffrey Combs in 90% of the scenes is worth taking a look at.
