However, when the power-hungry Gallian (Ray Liotta) invades the kingdom, Farmer must abandon his simple existence in order to rescue his wife (Claire Forlani) and save his king (Burt Reynolds). This film is a cinematic adaptation of the video game Dungeon Siege. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The director, Uwe Boll, remains committed to long, dull, mediocre action films. His tenacity is a virtue."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Uwe Boll isn't the worst director in the world, but In the Name of the King might be more enjoyable if he were."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
"Don't waste your time."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"It's not bad enough to warrant burning copies of, rather it'll sit on the back of video store shelves for the rest of its time and that's where it should stay."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Why in the world would I give a terrible, terrible move 1 star?Well, how can I call a film worthless when it's so awful that it provides unintended laughs?"
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"If this isn't Boll's best effort to date, it's better than his usual output. If he can continue to improve, his name may no longer be synonymous with a punch line."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Boll has been compared to Ed Wood, but there's nothing personal about his ineptitude; he's just a deal-maker completing a transaction. Save perhaps for his fan club of ironists, movies like In The Name Of The King could only make a ledger happy."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Will any other movie ever be as amazing as this one?"
‑ Dave White,
"If you can appreciate bad cinema, than I recommend it, but anyone that is looking to watch an actual good movie, avoid like the plague!"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Not only is Dungeon Siege the best film of Uwe Boll's career, but it's also guaranteed not to be the worst one released in its year."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, IGN Movies
"Like actors in an amateur stage play, the large, mostly all-star -- or has-been star -- cast of In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale look, rather dazedly, to be playing dress-up."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"The film never achieves a suitable level of camp that would make it at least unintentional fun. It also is terminally boring at its 127-minute running time, making one supremely grateful that a half-hour has been cut for this U.S. release."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"LOTR copycat is so bad it's good -- for laughs."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"I wouldn't change a thing. It's been a while since I've seen Hollywood filmmaking this unsafe and unhinged."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Only Uwe Boll would assume that the moviegoing public craved a trashy Lord of the Rings rip-off starring Burt Reynolds and Matthew Lillard, and only he could then manage to make such a potentially riotous endeavor so humorless."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
