Metacritic Score

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times

    Its convictionless competence is merely dull, denying the pleasures of an outright howler without providing much else.

  • 20

    The New York Times Laura Kern

    An awkward "Lord of the Rings" knockoff, it features both elaborate battles and bumbling humor, though it's never quite clear when you should be laughing.

    Variety Joe Leydon

    A plodding patchwork of derivative fantasy-adventure, medieval production design, risible dialogue, unimpressive CGI trickery and haphazardly edited action sequences.
