This movie certainly had the budget going into it, and the special effects are top notch for the day. Statham delivers on his usual capabilities around martial arts, and I suppose his action scenes are probably the best parts of the film. I never played the video game that this movie is based on, and so I can forgive a certain amount of campy dialogue as the film does its best to closely follow what I assume was the plot of the game. Liotta and Reynolds do a decent job, but it's tough to see them outside of their usual typecast roles and take them seriously here. There are some interesting takes on combat units in a fantasy setting and such, but overall the plot and story are pretty cliche. The film is probably too long and feels like they are just padding it, especially during the mud slide combat scenes. I would have rated the film slightly higher had the director given some attention to a post-climax resolution. Seemingly the whole subplot around the female lead magus is simply dropped after Statham kisses his wife . . . what? Roll credits here? Why not cut some of the dead weight from the middle of the movie and give us a decent ending? Show Statham on the throne with some kind of ceremony or something. I suspect these are some of the reasons this film performed poorly - which is too bad, it had all the elements and money to make it a successful niche cult movie.
