Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - «A made for TV mini-series from the fine folks at RHI Entertainment, Knights Of The Bloodsteel really is a pretty ballsy rip off of The Lord Of The Rings. It doesn’t even try to hide that fact, a face made all the more obvious not just by the image used on the cover art on the DVD release, but on the title font as well. Make no bones about it, the marketing department behind this one is hoping your grandmother will get confused and buy it thinking it’s one of those Hobbit movies that the funny, chubby bearded guy from New Zealand made. As the copy on the back of the packaging states, ‘An Epic Battle For World Domination Has Begun.’ There’s a little more to it than that, however. Set in the mystical magical unheard of world of Mirabillis, an evil warlord named Dragon Eye wants to get his hands on a magical ring, erm, no make that a crucible. He wants to get his hands on a crucible. At any rate, Dragon Eye amasses an army of no-goodniks to go out and get it for him, as once he gets it he’ll have absolute power over all in the land. Unfortunately for Dragon Eye, the crucible is in the hands of a rag-tag group of amiable and noble warriors made up of an assassin named John (top billed David James Elliott, a hot elf chick named Perfidia (Natissa Malthe doing her best Liv Tyler), a tough but magically inclined goblin named Ber-lak (Dru Viergever), and a roguish thief type guy named Adric (Christopher Jacot). These guys and girls will do everything in their power to make sure that Dragon Eye doesn’t get the object of his affections, even though it will mean crossing many dangerous lands and fighting many dangerous (and magical) enemies. Lucky for them they’ve got a wizard leader guy in the form of the oddly named Tessalink (Christopher Lloyd) who is far more wise and powerful than his humble appearance and pointy Spock ears would have you believe. Oh and there’s a magical element native to this land called Bloodsteel that grants those who bear it special super magic powers. Take pretty much every fantasy movie cliché you can think of from films like the Lord Of The Rings trilogy ...» (Ian Jane).
