Accents? What accents?
28 November 2003 | by winslowarizonaSee all my reviews

It's all basically been said before here; bad script, bad acting, implausible plot, nonsense dialogue. But what hasn't been mentioned, as far as I can see, is the really unbelievably bad accents attempted by both main bad guys. To be honest I'm not really sure what area of THE WORLD Bruce Payne is supposed to from, and Stephen Berkoff is actually one of the only entertaining things in the movie with his 'Elvis/JR Ewing/Dick Van Dyke' type southern preacher drawl. Why couldn't these guy's keep their brit accents?

They would probably have been too good for the rest of the movie, that's why.

In a perverse way I quite liked this movie though. Like watching a car crash; you don't want to look but you can't look away.

Still not as bad as The Avengers.
