A prince and a fellowship of companions set out to rescue his bride from a fortress of alien invaders who have arrived on their home planet.I finally watched Krull last night (in my defense... I have no defense). It was surprising in many ways - the opening scene and special effects clearly think they're actually in the original Star Wars trilogy, but most of rest of it is standard fantasy fare. Also, for every groan-worthy scene, there's a plot point that I actually found intriguing:
- A race of cyclops created when they gave up one eye in exchange for foresight. They were tricked; the only future event they can actually see is their own death. (I would seriously like to read a short story based on this.)
- Fire mares are the fastest creatures ever and leave trails of smoke in their fiery wake. (haha, what.)
- The science teacher from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory makes an appearance as the short sidekick who can turn himself into various animals for laughs and eventual saving-of-the-random-child-character. (Fun character).
- The Power of Love at the end. (One of many, many tropes in the movie.)
