Show Synopsis

Ridley Scott directed this visually striking but narratively bland sword and sorcery saga that mixes ample doses of J.R.R. Tolkien, Thomas Mallory, George Lucas, Joseph Campbell and Dungeons and Dragons into a watered down kettle pot. Many years ago, the Earth was an idyllic land of unicorns and bright sunshine. But the forces of light become embroiled are in mortal battle with the forces of darkness --specifically the evil Prince of Darkness (Tim Curry), who lives in dark caverns below the Earth's surface and has nefarious ...

Soldiers Of The Light

TITLE: Legend
GENRE: Fantasy, magic, fairies and goblins
CAST: Tom Cruise, Mia Sara and Tim Curry
PLOT: The princess and the woodland boy are in love. Their path to life together hits a bump called the Dark Lord, who wants to extinguish the sun by killing the last of the unicorns. To capture the unicorns, his minnions must also grab the princess who the D, Lord develops a craving for. The woodland boy and his friends the fairies come to the rescue, save the princess and also get to "Save The Day"!.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT:: 9 of 10; This is one of those films requiring such elaborate fantasy sets, it seems they turn down the lights a bit so we won't see the 'made in...' tags. But otherwise the film is executed by the cast, the make-up artists, the set desiners, the special effects and the choreographer to high standards.
DVD BONUS: Ridley Scott (the Director) overdub of commentary with the music used in the European release; Lost scenes; a Bryan Ferry music video based on the film; Promotion stills and behind the scenes stills.
ADDED NOTES: In the European version the couple run off into the sunset (rise?) after reviving a dead unicorn by putting its horn back. In the USA version we just see the unicorn alive again, the princess runs home and the woodland boy runs off into the sunset (rise?).
