Trivia

The team from MainStay Productions usually takes over different parts in their movies: John Lyde is for example also one of General Drennon's guards and plays the shadow agent during the fight scenes. Paul D. Hunt is also a guard, and together with Danielle Chuchran the trio practiced that fight at home. The same holds for John Lyde, Danielle Chuchran and Adam Abram in Fangtor's fight. Here Danielle Chuchran also helped editing that scene ... etc. 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 most Hollywood movies
22 June 2013 | by proxy55See all my reviews

This movie was surprisingly good. The story is relatively simple, but the interesting characters (especially the orc, Kullimon, "ha ha ha") along with great music and pictures made it work.

It's not as "shiny" and overdone as Hollywood products and I think that's its biggest strength. Special effects (which are very good for a low budget production) were kept to the scenes where it makes sense and not used carelessly. The landscape and scenery are so much better than anything you're used to from big movies, because it's actually real and not 50% CGI. It doesn't look oversaturated and edited, but really natural, which adds a lot of immersion that most movies are lacking nowadays.

Overall it's a really nice movie and I can definitely recommend it to people who like the genre.
