Awful, boring, and all in between.
What to say, really, it was awful, terribly awful. When I read the reviews, I thought, it was worth a try, but I instantly regretted it. All of Malta must've upvoted this movie, which is terrible, since if this is what they consider the best in Maltese cinema, I shudder to think what they usually have.
Woody acting, lack of expression, weak dialogues, bad pacing, bad sound and terrible plot. Almost everything wrong that's been done in a movie has been done here. The only good thing about the movie is its setting, but even then, there's not much to see, giving it a rustic ambiance, but nothing extraordinary. The acting of the main character Tristain is acceptable, but not exceptional. Add it to the cast of terrible supporting actors, even his better-than-average acting can save the movie, especially when all he got left is a bad script.
The only reason I give it a 2, is because I think that it can probably be watched by some people who are into those medieval and renaissance fair stuff, but most people would call it trash. From the first 5 minutes of watching I knew it was bad, but I kept watching because I thought this could've been one of those movies that was so bad, it's good. Unfortunately, this movie is not one of those and I called it quits halfway into the movie.
So if you guys are looking for a good medieval setting movie, don't bother. Go watch Kingdom of Heaven, Lord of the Rings or other similar stuff. This movie should be put in the list of "The Movies I'd Watch If There's Nothing Else To Watch Or Do".
