I just saw Ironclad 2 Battle for Blood.

Oh god it sucks.  Some movies are so bad and cheesey that they are funny and you can laugh at them.  This one tries to be serious though, and it's just totally horrible.

The castle "sieges" are like 12 people assaulting a wall.  The acting is atrocious.  It's not the same actor playing the protagonist.  The camera work is shit.  The cinematography is just so forced.  Like, trying to be dramatic but totally failing.  The writing is corny.  The characters are flat.  There are a few good moments -- but it's not worth it.

The storyline -- the sequence of events and interactions -- the timeline of the battles ---- IT ALL MAKES NO SENSE.  It jumps around all over the place.  The ending is completely nonsensical.  It is abrupt and baffling.  It leaves questions with the viewer -- and not the kind of good questions that provoke thought.  Questions like "what the fuck was that?  Who the hell is that character and why on earth would he do such a retarded thing?  That's the end?  Who wrote this piece of shite?  Where they really high, or did they just quit and someone else had to end the script?  What were the producers thinking?  The director?  Did the actors even know what they were doing, or were they all lied to?"

Sorry for the rant -- but based on the description of the movie, I thought it would be good, and I wanted to come back and follow up.

First movie was not too bad, but this one is cheaper. Cheaper actors, cheaper costumes, cheaper scenario etc.
