Trivia

The first scene (Nemyt vs Fangtor) was done as a concept for a possible series or movie. It was shot beginning of 2012, while the rest of the film was taken later in August. Nemyt's costume is different, and Danielle Chuchran looks more adult. See more »

Goofs

Nemyt has no scroll, when she approaches Fangtor. Seconds later it is there. See more »

Quotes

Kullimon: So what now?
Keltus: The Shadow agent has the ashes of Amun-Khan and the blood of Goth Azul. He took the canteen I collected at the bleeding stone. When they are mixed together at the entrance to the underworld, they will raise an avatar of Goth Azul, Lord of the Dead. With him at their head their legions will march across the land, their ranks swelling with the corpses the reanimate. An then... they will be unstoppable.
Kullimon: That sounds bad.

Better than expected
16 June 2013 | by LumosXSee all my reviews

I saw this film accidentally, with zero warning, so to speak. It looked as if it was interesting enough, so after watching the trailer and a bit of pondering, I decided to go and check it out. (Besides, I tend to enjoy watching bad films - I saw Uwe Boll's "Alone in the Dark" after reading all the bad reviews - so nothing could go wrong, right?) And yes, nothing went wrong, I actually quite enjoyed the film. Yes, it was a bit cheap and the (sparingly used) CGI weren't top quality, but that's quite understandable given the film's limited budget. The music was very nice, and the costumes were spot-on, with the orcs looking quite good. (Fun fact: There were more fantastic races in this film than there were humans.) Speaking about the races though, the film certainly reminds more of WarCraft III than of Tolkien, but it only "reminds", nothing more. We didn't see a lot of dwarfs, unfortunately. The story was reasonably good and the action scenes were abundant. I'd have loved more character development and more introduction to the world (the first 10-15 minutes of the film were mostly swordfights), but it works as it is. The film is gripping and interesting enough, and worth a watch. Just don't expect something too amazing. It seems to be based on a video game and I've heard rumours about other films (or TV series? I'm not certain, sorry) in the same universe, which I'd certainly give a shot to as well.

A solid 6/10 from me, but it's very near to the 7.

NB: Note that there is some blood and a bit of gore in this film, which some viewers might find displeasing.
