Tales of an Ancient Empire (2010)

aka Abelar: Tales of an Ancient Empire

How bad is it? Poorly constructed and not what people expect from the genre.
Should you see it? No. It's a mediocre film and life's too short to watch mere mediocrity.

This is a swords and sandals epic starring Kevin Sorbo, where a princess tries to unite five warriors against a vampire/demon/sorceress. The film has a really shaky start that has nothing to do with the rest of the film and it has no ending, suggesting it was meant as part of a series, perhaps as a pilot episode. It's plot-heavy, with a lot about family dynamics and a father who's never actually seen. This may have been started as a sequel to "The Sword and the Sorcerer," but the fight scenes and special effects are dull and poor.
