I heard about this movie and that it supposedly had a 100 million dolar production budget. This seemed pretty cool and I was expecting something similar to lord of the rings in terms of epicness and special effects.

I was wrong

This movie was terrible, the script was really badly written and i could identify with none of the characters. At some points it felt like I was watching a play instead of a movie. The director used dolly/zoom moves througout the movie at random points. I did some research and found the director was an established special effects director on his first actual directing job. Did any of you guys watch this movie, and what did you think about it?

Seeing one corny trailer with John Malkovic hamming it up in bad make-up was enough to turn me off this movie.

This movie is basically this year's "fantasy filler", since no Potter flick was released.

It probably could have boosted its quality had they given it to a talented director...alas, this is what we got.

Hey Gang,

I used to work at the casinos in Tunica (Mississippi riverboat gambling). I would stand at the door, look at the customers coming in and think to myself, "If you just need to throw your money away, why not simply give it to me?"

I feel rather the same about Hollywood. I can make a bad movie and not even charge half as much.
