Not even the presence of several almost legendary British special effects wizards and a
big budget can save this plodding fantasy tale, about a young prince who has to save his
princess and his kingdom in the process, from being spectacularly unengaging.
sense of humour and fun would have helped this dull and predictable mixture of Star Wars and Excalibur featuring
ancient wizards, unfunny bungling magicians, small kids in Robin Hood-type outfits and
bearded princes with vertically striped (always slimming!) tights - but alas!
better off seeing The Princess Bride again and it is doubtful
whether even small children would be entertained by Krull . . .
