Krull (1983, Lysette Anthony, Liam Neeson)



Krull is a visually striking yet overblown sword-and-sorcery fantasy that borrows brazenly and ineptly from similar sagas, from King Arthur to Star Wars. Ken Marshall is a prince from a strange planet who fights his way through a predictably treacherous obstacle course to rescue his princess bride (Lysette Anthony) from The Beast.

Despite the slick special effects and thundering soundtrack, the derring-do adventure seems stale and monotonous.
