Listen. I understand what I need to do now. I need to defeat Tervin to get the medallion so I can go home and you won't have to worry about Tervin anymore. We can work together.
Look, you fight only for yourself and you're not a skilled fighter, even if you think you are.

Fool me once, shame on you
Fool me twice, shame on me
Fool me three times, I'm a ruddy idiot
I'm a longtime Boll defender, movies like this do not help my cause at all.
The first In The Name Of The King (2007) was mediocre but passable, it's sequel (2011) was a bit of mess but nothing too offensive. This however, is a slap in the face with a part of Uwe's anatomy we should not discuss anywhere........ever.
Here we see mercenary Dominic Purcell ham it up as another guy ripped through space and time, mistaken for a "Chosen one" and forced to battle evil forces including an awful looking cgi dragon.
Nothing against Purcell in fact I think the guy is a decent enough actor for the genres he tends to do, but here he is officially phoning in his performance and looks bored from the outset.
Now onto the stupidity, for a start our protagonist is a bad guy with few redeeming features. No movie which starts with a guy kidnapping children is going to get me to root for him.
Secondly the front cover is yet another dishonest one, at no point does Purcell wear a suit of armor.
Boring, mindless stupidity is all you'll find here.
Not so much
This is a protagonist, really?
CGI is really poor
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Even Hollywood recognises womens insistence on going for the biggest a-hole available
Upon being pulled through a portal you will have instantly attained the ability to wield a sword like an expert
