Veteran director and cult icon Albert Pyun gets picked on quite a bit by geeky, translucent bloggers like myself, and, for the most part, the criticisms surrounding the glut of his cinematic output are justified. However, the guy has been on a roll lately — check out the immensely entertaining “Bulletface” if you think I’m full of cinematic excrement — and “Tales of an Ancient Empire” appears to continue this trend of B-movie excellence. Yes, the movie is beyond cheesy and, yes, it looks like a role-playing gamer’s wet dream come to life, but you simply cannot deny how insanely entertaining the embedded trailer truly is.
Before proceeding, a warning: There’s some brief nudity in the clip provided below, so make sure nobody’s around if you choose to view this thing at work.
Much love to Twitch for the info.
