Trivia

The leader of the 'Artox Army' is actually speaking in English, as evidenced by his mouth movements, although it is significantly garbled. See more »

Goofs

In the lineup of military vehicles, the first two tanks are clearly mocked up British Centurions. However, the rest of the tanks are CG fakes, as evidenced by their lack of a raised lip on the glacis plate and the more correct shape of their hull fronts. They are also not obscured by the exhaust from the first two tanks. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Belafonte: All right. Fine. I didn't see a snake. For heaven's sake, there is no such thing as a giant snake. I must have lost my mind for a second.
Psychiatrist: Everybody makes mistakes. I'm glad you're seeing clearly.
[to the guard]
Psychiatrist: You may untie him.
Mr. Belafonte: I hate to say this, but the giant snake is in this hospital right now. Look out your window.
Psychiatrist: Tie him again. He has to be hospitalized.

How did we get to Mordor, mommy?
19 September 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This movie serves as a timely warning to anyone who thinks they can both write and direct their own movie. Face it, you can't. Because that way there's nobody around to tell you when you hack great holes in your plot, have meaningless transitions, trite, unmemorable dialog and manage to turn a fairly cool Korean legend into a steaming pile of celluloid turd.

I wanted to like this movie as a trashy popcorn movie, really I did; I like lots of crappy movies. But once I've been forced to ask myself what the hell just happened and WHY, DEAR LORD, WHY? more than a few times, I really can't take it any more.

Also, I would love for someone to explain how LA became Mordor for the last scene.
