Critic Reviews for Krull
You enjoy it for that long-ago ten-year-old who remembers how great it seemed.
Despite the heaps of '80s hair and the special-effect sparks added to the clanking of swords, this is richer stuff than anything by Lucas before it, or Peter Jackson after it.
Audience Reviews for Krull
Having revisited this film more than 30 years since I last saw it as a boy, I enjoyed "Krull" even more that I did then. The special effects are surprisingly strong for a film made in 1983 (for the most part), and the film score is excellent. Costumes are cheap but effective. The acting is dismal, but you do get to enjoy early performances from the likes of Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane. "Krull" is enjoyable as silly, retro fantasy fun.
Classic British fantasy film with a classic cast line up of future stars. The plot is very basic and very cliched, you can guess whats gonna happen a mile off but its just so damn cool you gotta forgive all that.
The baddies are like Cybermen in black and the huge evil monster in the dark castle is quite scary hehe scared me when I was a kid haha.
The whole Krull world is really well done and pretty expansive, even though it is dated now it still looks really nice, the costumes aren't too bad and the action is quite strong and works well. Its hard to explain but Krull is just one of those films that works yet you dont know quite why :)
Cheesy but appealing. I enjoyed it, but I can't say it's the best thing I've ever seen. lol
