Despite technically a well made movie, there are some major issues in the storyline. The film changes tack halfway and decides not to care anymore about the killer disease that threatens humanity. Instead that part is only used to dispose of characters once they are not needed any longer. The second storyline is becoming increasingly far fetched, despite some kind of wrap-up on the end. The movie meanders between overly gory details and its storyline, making the gore rather gratuitous than essential. On the whole King of Thorn is a solid choice if there is nothing else around, but certainly not a feature film.
