This lavishly staged and costumed fantasy is about young Jack (Tom Cruise) and his lady love Princess Lili (Mia Sara), and how Jack battles Darkness (Tim Curry) to save both the Princess and the world. When the peasant Jack takes Princess Lili to see the unicorns, the strongest animals around, he does not know that Darkness, with his cloven hooves, yellow eyes, and red skin plans on using Lili as bait to weaken the unicorns which he does -- and plunge the world into an ice age. Soon after that

The cool costumes and set designs almost make it worthwhile, so long as the sound's turned down and you don't have to hear the witless dialogue
"glorious visuals -- shame about the script"
Perhaps ahead of its time, certainly too ambitious for its budget and its era, Legend is nevertheless a fascinating film
Could have been a genre classic if it had benefited from a meatier screenplay and a studio that didn't butcher the final product.
Ridley Scott's exclusive-to-DVD re-edit of Legend, no pun intended, is fantastic.
The movie is enchanting and has moments of magic, but it's an utter train wreck, overwhelmed by cheesy special effects, dialogue writ insanely large, and a kind of goofy plot.
