We’re seeing double! (There are two pictures)
It’s no one you’ve heard of. But he says he likes Mass Effect, so it’s a start.
In 2006, unofficially-crowned Worst Director of All Time Uwe Boll made an action-fantasy video-game adaptation (of the Dungeon Siege games) called In The Name Of The King. It cost $60million, starred Jason Statham and Ron Perlman, and boasted supporting turns from Ray Liotta and Burt Reynolds. It made less than $14million and has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 4%. Now, six years later, he’s made a sequel. Super.

Uwe Boll, the mastermind behind such spectacles as BloodRayne: The Third Reich and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, is frequently cited as the worst director of all time. But in the light of his extraordinary workrate and evident quest for self-improvement, does his canon deserve a reassessment? Tell you what, we’ll decide that.
