As the ruthless monarch burns down to the ground a small village, the wounded Akkadian mercenary, Mathayus, joins forces with the Nubian princess, Tala, to embark on a long and dangerous quest to find the mystical Book of Souls: the only thing that can put an end to Nebserek's tyranny.

Better than I thought
23 February 2019 | by bestfordSee all my reviews

Expected garbage but it was ok. Ticked some boxes. Bit of eye candy for everyone, bit of action and at least there was a story. Worth a watch.
