    ★★★

    I never played the games, but I mostly like what they tried to do here. It has enough original ideas and small subversions of classic fantasy tropes, that it stands out as a unique fantasy yarn, but it also could have used another round of editing. Some scenes don't breathe like they should, others are too slow, some characters obviously were more interesting in the script than they are here.

    The end result is watchable and far from being a soulless paycheck movie, but also not the genre re-invention that it was supposed to be.

    If it has one flaw, it’s maybe that not every actor has…

    There are two kinds of cult movies. There are the ROCKY HORRORs and BLACK DYNAMITEs and then there are the MACHETE KILLSes, SHARKNADOs and KUNG FURYs. In the first category are movies, that are made by people who had a cool idea and carefully put together a movie that they can be proud of. The second category are movies, made by people, who just randomly slap every image from their ADHD ridden stoner brain together, without any feeling for rhythm…
