An unspeakably evil army rampages across what was an idyllic, peaceful world, destroying everything in its path, looking to conquer the mighty Castle of Ehb 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.
In a final confrontation that will determine the fate Ehb, it is up to Farmer to claim his birthright and defeat Gallian or allow the evil wizard to take control of the land.
Never have been a great fan of roleplay games mainly because of all the dice rolling required. I guess it was also because I could never really get my head into that whole swords and goblins mentality. But seeing this movie not only gave me a great way to pass an afternoon doing something other than washing the car, but also gave me a really interesting insight into what goes on in the imaginations of those who finds sitting around in darkened rooms with a bucket of dice and a notepad a worthwhile passtime.
The movie was pretty good, but the highlight had to be the cast. For a mediocre movie it had a top-flight talent list. Leelee Sobieski, who I first saw in "House of Glass", pulled off a great 'warrior princess' (eat ya heart out Xena) while I was impressed at just how well Ray Liota pulled off the evil wizard role. He was quite at home in his insane magic-wielder persona, almost too comfortable.
The real drawcard for me was Jason Statham as he is rapidly becoming one of my favourite action stars. His character, the mysterious 'Farmer' with a lost history, was a little weak but his sheer presence made it worthwhile watching despite the amazingly mild and at times stilted fight choreography.
Amazingly, despite some astoundingly simple mistakes in production (see if you can spot what looks a lot like a microphone sticking out of a hedge) and a few outrageous exagerations when it comes to the distance someone could travel in the time portrayed, the movie was pretty entertaining if you suspend your disbelief and just get into the flow of things.

Last Rites... And Wrongs
A dignified send-off for a loved one erupts into uproarious chaos when romance, jealousy, in-laws, hallucinogens, dark secrets, life-long yearnings and a spot of bold blackmail all collide graveside in the irreverent British comedy, Death at a Funeral. Directed by Frank Oz and featuring a cast made up of the cream of Britain's crop, the film mischievously explores what happens on the day when a typically ... more...
