The title so nice, they named it twice!

Ohhhh mahhhh ggggaaawwddd. So very bad, it is good.

The male lead is the poor-man's Cillian Murphy (The Wife suggests the poor man's Ashton Kutcher). The female lead is the poor-woman's Alicia Silverstein. The FBI agent is the poor-man's Chris Cooper.

This movie seems to have said, let's take the worst elements of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Enemy of the State, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, 300 (sans blood), Mortal Combat, Constantine, Conan (snake-references), the end of Bethesda's Oblivion (Elder Scrolls game) and Dinotopia and combined them.

There are also several roles by several side-characters (e.g. Craig Robertson -- the black guy who worls in the warehouse on the American TV-show version of the office) that I am surprised that there isn't a lesser Baldwin cast although that might have made the budget rise to 5 figures.

The special effects rival something out of an Ed Wood movie. So very bad -- I think I could make this movie with my digital camera. The Wife comments that the dragons look like something from Jar Jar Bink's homeworld. For some reason all gun fire is directed at shields (hence no effect).

Thankfully, my wife and I are splitting a bottle of champagne to make it more watchable. I highly recommend this movie for those that enjoyed any sequal to The Highlander or Sci-Fi's new Flash Gordon TV show.

I'm still wondering that about "Meet the Spartans," "Epic Movie," and movies of those sorts myself.

I still think that "Dracula 3000" was the worst movie ever.

I thought The Host was pretty good, so I was hoping this would come out well. It did not.

Captain America and Q&A rank high in worst movies for me, although I think D-Wars is far worse when taking into account bad cgi, acting, etc.

I think there was only one -- the one from the 80s -- I think around the time of the Dolph Lundgren Punisher movie (which was better than the Capt'n).
