Before Excalibur, before the Knights of the Round Table, before Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot and Galahad, there was a sorcerer shrouded in the mists of Avalon; this is his tale.

In a time long past, when magic was fading from the world, the wicked sorceress Mab, the Queen of Darkness, summoned forth a mighty wizard to keep the power of the Old Ways alive. The wizard's name was Merlin.

When his heart is touched by the love of the beautiful Nimue, Merlin turns away from Mab's dark enchantments. In anger Mab allows Merlin to be captured by Lord Vortigern (Rutger Hauer) and imprisoned with Nimue.

When Arthur is born, Mab immediately puts a curse on him. Allying himself with the young warrior who will rise to become the legendary King Arthur, Merlin pledges his mystic skills to Arthur's visionary cause: bringing peace and justice to a realm haunted by monsters and ravaged by war - and setting the stage for the ultimate clash of Good against Evil.

I remember watching this on the television when my Grandaughters were young and we were entranced. Now my Grandaughters are grown up and I'm a Great Grandmother and I was still entranced when I sat through it. It's a long film in two parts but I sat through it all and time sped past. The magic, the special effects are still the best I have seen. This is a legend of good vs evil, fairies, goblins and of course Merlin played beautifully by Sam Neil. I will no doubt watch it again some time in the future and enjoy it just as much.

An absolutely breathtaking film, that retells the famous legend of King Arthur from the eyes of the wizard Merlin, with alots of other beautiful legends from around that time added in.

Everything you would want from a legendary fantasy. Theres fairies, gnomes, beautiful lords and ladies, epic battles and a dragon - not to mention Merlin himself!

This film is truely magical, in every way.

Due to this 'film' originally being made for a two-part TV feature, it runs for a good three hours if you watch it all in one sitting - but you wont get bored. There is not a slow moment, and it draws you in completely. When I sat down to watch this a few days ago, I planned to watch it in two parts, but I couldn't turn it off.

Fantastic acting from some fantastic actors. Sam Niell, Miranda Richardson, Helena Bonham Carter - infact, all the cast are absolutely superb and made this film as great as it is.

You can't go wrong with characters like Merlin, Frick, Morgan Le Fay, the Pagan Goddess Queen Mab, King Arthur, Mordred, Lancelot and Guinevere - Yes, this film has them all and more! Perfection!

Fantastic scenes, fantastic soundtrack also. Really takes you away to their magical world.

Desperately recommended for all fantasy lovers - and even if you're not a big fan of fantasy films, this will have something for you. If it catches your eye, get it now!
