What you expect from a Dolph Lundgren movie. The guy can't act but I like to watch him anyway.

In the Name of the King 2: (Medieval Movie). Tinkering, Thinking Thoughts: (1) A Similar Story: From a similar sounding sense and in speaking of things that happened from point of view, coming from past tense, “In the Name of the King 2” was as in similar style setup as Mark Twain’s, “A Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.” But that’s kind of where this story’s setup of plot point per view ends, it becoming more distorted to that of Twain’s tale as time-ticks onward and it having of its own tale, told to its own end. (2) Summary: So in story happening in real time, we find ex-military man from a future, from a distant, other land, and he comes to find himself in a new land; and in this new land, he finds, it has been bound and hurled into darkness, or as we may call it, the Medieval ages. And that’s the gist and grisly, bare bones, brunt of it. There’s also deception, it being placated and delegated by the growing, gripping plot; it, leaving dubious affairs amidst some mind maddening snares, and it leading Dolph’s character and me, the viewer, to be left with lingering, developing doubt. (3) Initially, I thought the camera shooting to be shaky and shoddy; additionally as well, per initial thoughts and feelings, I was thinking and feeling, the acting, and just to be positive here, was to be “unusually, interesting”. (4) I had thought and felt the movie to act as mirror as like to a play of Shakespeare, except it to me was as a more coherent, cognizant, mirror… it made more aware than any play of Shakespeare. (5) Dolph’s natural dialect, his natural acting ability, and his natural stage of presence, presented interesting thoughts of how any sound, sound-minded man from any age, and from any land of our day in age, might act and react to said such serious situations at hand; that of which any of us, whom might find ourselves to be in, we might as well find these scenarios and scenes to be of extraordinary, compared to regular ordinary. Additionally, the rest of the character cast, I thought and felt, matched hero’s outlandish speech, them having their own set of interesting and different kinds of dialect. At least to me as he appears in his movies, Dolph frequently fits this character formula, this character archetype, this character mold of a man, bearing laconic words as such said with his witty, deadpan, and/or dull, (depending on point of view), one-liners… and he appeared in “ItNotK2” to embody and embrace these character qualities, having his body and face, speaking as normally and naturally via his own defined grace or disgrace (once again, depending on point of view). (6) Based upon this movie, being based upon the RPG, Dungeon Siege and its video game series, I could have sworn I saw scenes and heard speeches of similarity to that of those found from the franchise’s game series. As I write this previous, seer-like, probable premonition... I, additionally, will want to admonish mine own, bold admission… in that I use to play a many fair and fun, old school, RPG games of yesteryore… where in these games of yesteryore, outward speeches were less, and fighting while having loot fests, were more. Additionally in terms of more in those games of yesteryore, if there had been dialogue said, it had come in form of visual, eye-leering and veering, text to be read. (7) Rare, witty, writer’s commentary, coming from writer’s whimsical wordplay. (8) As movie made progress, its growth, grew within me at no less. I confess, movie was most splendid, and a sure sight to see. If one wished for movie of exquisite caliber, though disclaimer, it having no sword named Excalibur, then one might enjoy “ItNotK2”… Rating: 4.2/5.0; Xandor Who

Disappointing !! ,.. and I'm a very forgiving consumer of the genre. Another "Swords and Sci-fi" cross-over. But poorly done. They didn't evin try to make the "castle" look like anything more than plastic foam. !? And the voice-overs do NOT cover-up for the script weaknesses, or for the grainy, ugly film texture, or the jerky, jumpy fight scenes. I'm suprised Dolph Lundgren was involved ! ,.. ( "Kev's PICkS" : For a much better fantasy-adventure 'fix' , I heartily recommend "The Outlander",.. its a beautifully crafted 'Swords & Sci-fi' tale about spaceship + Vikings = ' Beowolf '. )

*The King harks to all who would hear and to all who were going on journey along side, chosen one, Granger* [The King]: “Your King commends your bravery. You shall be honored as heroes.” [Granger]: “Yeah… Well I hope we don’t get eaten by cannibals.” *Granger looks, lovingly and affectionately at his horse and says, jovially as like joshing, but really emphasizing his genuine, growing concern for those alleged cannibals out there* [Granger]: “She’s worried, too.” [The King]: “You have a strange way about you, Granger.”
