Thatcher. Reagan. Flock of Seagulls. These weren't the only evil things from the 1980s. There were also Hollywood fantasy movies such as this one . . .

Ridley's misstep.

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

| Original Score: 3.5/4

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.

Legend is a Gothic fairy tale brought to life.

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.

Scott is less interested in unraveling a plot than he is in capturing the look and feel of myth

All of the special effects in the world, and all of the great makeup, and all of the great Muppet creatures can't save a movie that has no clear idea of its own mission and no joy in its own accomplishment.
