Consensus: Featuring mostly wooden performances, laughable dialogue, and shoddy production values, In the Name of the King fulfills all expectations of an Uwe Boll film.

Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

The director, Uwe Boll, remains committed to long, dull, mediocre action films. His tenacity is a virtue.

Uwe Boll isn't the worst director in the world, but In the Name of the King might be more enjoyable if he were.

A fantasy class-D story starring talented actors at their worst moment. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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.

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.

Hollywood Reporter

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.

Will any other movie ever be as amazing as this one?

Tons of stars means I will give this 2 stars. Thats it. This movie was so bad for what it was . . . just a shame.

Uwe Boll attempts to make his very own Lord of the Rings and the results are hilarious. I mean, I've seen some bad writing in my life, but this movie has… More

It's like a shittier version of Lord Of The Rings without the homosexual innuendos.

This is a terrible film all the way, God knows how they got such a good cast. It rips off so many good, bad and old fantasy films and not in a good way either,… More
