Storyline

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 Horus'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.

Goofs

Talus' army uses counterpoise trebuchets. The big sling shot weapons with the counter weight. This particular type was not invented until the middle ages around the 11th century. If we follow the time line of the other movies that places them about 4000 years before they were invented. See more »

Cannot comprehend the idea of making such a bad movie
31 December 2011 | by oscarquintanilla27See all my reviews

First of all I want to simply warn the movie watchers regarding the opinion I am going to express. Personally I feel that this is the worst Movie I have viewed during my existence. The movie starts with a narrative to catch the viewers interest and attention. I was under the impression that it would be a good movie, after 30 minutes of watching this movie I simply had get out of the and not look back. I have never have degraded anyones work, with the exception of this film. I wish I could comprehend what the writer and producer were thinking when they chose the acting crew. The only actor that I notice talent was from Victor Webster, the hero, the king with out a kingdom. I cannot even continue to write about this movie since its a waste of time and money. I would not watch this movie even If I was paid and given free popcorn.
