Storyline

When a team of unlikely heroes hijacks a steam-powered battle wagon, a daring young wizard (Marek) steals the final piece of the all-powerful Darkspore and embarks on a desperate quest to deliver the cursed artifact to the gods for safe keeping; but when they are caught in a death race between a ruthless team of elite mercenaries and a trinity of demons, Marek must learn to believe in herself before her friends are killed and the Darkspore is lost, to stop the evil necromancer (Szorlok) from uniting the Darkspore and flooding the living world with his legions of undead.

The mixed feelings iron crown

The first film, 'Mythica: A Quest for Heroes', was not a bad movie but with some major debits and not an awful lot special about it. It was watchable if on the mediocre side if anything. Its first sequel 'Mythica: The Darkspore' quality-wise is about the same (though with a couple of improvements), watchable with nothing to get angry or excited about. Didn't care for 'Mythica: The Necromancer'.

'Mythica: The Iron Crown' is an improvement over the mediocre previous film 'Mythica: The Necromancer', and generally it's one of the better entries in the series. By all means, 'Mythica: Necromancer' is not terrible, it has its moments and good points and doesn't make one angry, but at the same time it's not so special either. Average is more like it, with a large number of big debits.

A few decent points here. It's nicely photographed generally and more focused in terms of camera work and the scenery is sweeping and boasts some colour and atmosphere. Costumes and sets allow one to get suitably, if not fully, immersed in the fantasy world that is being portrayed.

Not all the acting is bad. Melanie Stone is good in the lead role, and the character is engaging and well-rounded. .

'Mythica: The Iron Crown' music score is in places stirring and fits reasonably well. The humour is much less awkward here thankfully, sure there were times where it wasn't really needed but it's better placed and its tongue-in-cheek nature is actually amusing, even with a character that could have been obnoxious if executed wrongly.

However, the special effects do look ropey, the worst of them distractingly bad. The action has gotten more clumsily executed with each 'Mythica' film, being unexciting and under-choreographed and it all looks too safe. Some sloppy editing and lack of interaction in the scenes featuring any action are further disadvantages, not being more apparent in the big fight towards the end which was rushed in storytelling which hurt the coherence of it, terribly clumsy in staging and pedestrian in choreography.

Regarding the script, it's still a bit trite and could have explained things much more, things can be cheesy and vague. The direction is unimaginative. The story can feel simplistic and too thin, not doing an awful lot new with a not too original premise.

Some of the pacing is a little bumpy and momentum is variable, though mostly more flowing and tighter than 'The Necromancer'. The characters are never annoying, but only the main character is properly interesting, the rest are there with shades of a likable personality but little development and some are not always needed. The rest of the acting is nothing to write home about.

Wrapping it up, average but not bad. 5/10 Bethany Cox
