User Reviews

good movie but i wished for more action scenes .
21 July 2014 | by hoka-2012See all my reviews

i have to say that it's a really good movie. some of you would know that this is the third movie of "Applessed" this one is at the same level as the previous two movies "Appelessed " & "Appelessed Saga: Ex Machina". we see the comeback of the the female warrior Deunan Knute and her cyborg lover/partner Briareos and of course as the bad guy we have Tereus. you will find a new character "two horns" which is quite exciting and a has an important part in the movie.

there isn't a lot of action scenes , i have to say i hoped for more but the story is quite good and at the end i enjoyed the movie.

quick hint of what you will see (not a Spoiler): "Deunan Knute" & "Briareos" are now working for "two horns" as they do some missions for him and at one of the missions they save two individuals "Olson" & "Iris" from death and then they found out those two individuals have an important mission and that is when Deunan & Briareos offered to help to defeat the enemy "Tereus" and save the last hope for mankind.
