The whole point of a movie trailer is to serve as an enticement to make viewers want to see the full film. Whoever cut the trailer for Uwe Boll’s In the Name of the King 3 almost deserves a merit badge in sabotage for putting together one of the least enticing trailers in recent memory.
It was just before Halloween when news broke regarding Uwe Boll’s In the Name of the King 3 being in the can. The third film follows the same premise as the second film with “Prison Break” star Dominic Purcell following in Dolph Lundgren’s shoes as a world-weary killer-for-hire getting magically transported to a medieval fantasy kingdom under siege by evil.
Hazen Kaine, an American contract killer living in Sofia, Bulgaria, gets more than he bargains for when he enters into a contract with the mob. One last job before he gets out and starts a new life for himself. The targets: the three children of royal billionaire Andon Dupont. Seems simple enough, or so he thought. Hazen apprehends the children, and before he can blink an eye, a simple necklace worn by one of them sends his life spiraling back to medieval times. Now completely out of his element, Hazen fights for his life as he tries to escape a medieval army and a fierce fire-breathing dragon.
It is here that Hazen learns what is it to be a real man and a true warrior. He must fight alongside these damsels and their people, dodging arrows and fire balls, to reclaim a kingdom that was stolen from them years before.
I remember watching Far Cry and coming away thinking Uwe Boll just wasn’t even trying. Having seen the trailer for In the Name of the King 3 (which is, apparently, now subtitled “The Last Job”), I fully realize now what not trying looks like.
I think I’ll just wait for Boll’s Zombie Massacre instead.
