Featuring: Jason Statham, Leelee Sobieski, John Rhys-Davies, Ron Perlman, Claire Forlani, Kristanna Loken, Matthew Lillard, Ray Liotta

Genre: adventure, fantasy

Plot: evil (handsome) sorcerer plans to take over the kingdom

Acting: three quarters of the movie is fighting, no need for much acting skills

Drama: evil sorcerer seduces young sorceress-to-be half his age, hero’s son killed

Action: fight against ugly orc-like creatures and tree people

Funny: not enough

Visuals: Leelee Sobieski wears great dresses, and did I mentioned Ray Liotta’s eyes?

Comments: If you find staring at hunks like Jason Statham or Ray Liotta or girls like Leelee Sobieski and Claire Forlani if that is your orientation satisfying enough then by all means go see it. If you want a plot and something more to get your neurons running you shouldn’t bother. But she did have great dresses…

Rating: 5/10
