In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds
is a 2011 fantasy film directed by Uwe Boll.
Granger, an ex-special forces soldier and martial arts master, finds his life taking an unexpected turn when hooded figures begin attacking him in his own home. He is pulled through a magic portal into a medieval kingdom where he is declared The Chosen One
destined to bring peace to the kingdom.
Sent by the king on a mission to kill the Holy Mother, leader of the "Dark Ones", Granger learns that all is not as it seems and must discover the truth about the kingdom and himself in order to save not only the past, but the present as well.
In The Name of The King 2: Two Worlds provides examples of:
- Bland-Name Product: The kingdom itself. While strongly implied to be Ehb, and the previous king is implied to be the hero of the previous film, all references to Dungeon Siege are absent.
- Chekhov's Gunman: The "Dark One" who Granger shoots in his house turns out to be The Holy Mother.
- Hidden Backup Prince: Granger, who was sent to an orphanage far into the (then) future.
- In Name Only: Not so much to the game series the first movie was based on, but to the first movie itself. None of the characters return for this movie, none of the places are mentioned by name, and all references to Dungeon Siege are gone.
- The Prophecy: The whole reason Granger is brought to the kingdom.
- Sequel Hook: The amulet that Granger was given begins to emit magic similar to that used to open the portal to the other time.
- Vancouver Doubling: Zig-Zagged. The modern scenes are specifically said to be in Vancouver, where the scenes were shot, but the medieval scenes were also shot in British Columbia.
