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!
