Synopsis / Plot
Based on the popular video game of the same name. A man named Farmer sets out to rescue his kidnapped wife and avenge the death of his son -- two acts committed by the Krugs, a race of animal-warriors who are controlled by the evil Gallian. An unspeakably evil army rampages across what was an idyllic, peaceful world, destroying everything in its path, looking to conquer the mighty Castle Ebb and vanquish the King himself! Amidst this backdrop of war in the Kingdom of Ehb, between the evil Gallian and the ruling King Konreid, a once simple family man named Farmer sets out to find his kidnapped wife, Solana.

Critics' reviews
  • "An awkward 'Lord of the Rings' knockoff, it features both elaborate battles and bumbling humor, though it’s never quite clear when you should be laughing."
  • "Medieval tale assaults viewers' patience. (...) Boll, remains committed to long, dull, mediocre action films. His tenacity is a virtue."
  • "A plodding patchwork of derivative fantasy-adventure, medieval production design, risible dialogue, unimpressive CGI trickery and haphazardly edited action sequences"
  • "It's completely undone by its terrible screenplay, inept direction, oppressive musical score and muddy visual palette"
