Movie Info

Meant to be a whimsical sword-and-sorcery film about a prince out to save his princess from the jaws of the Beast, Krull has enough scenes borrowed from blockbuster predecessors (Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., Robin Hood, Star Wars) and is gentle enough to be rather derivative, ordinary fare. Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall) has inherited a kingdom under siege by the evil Beast, and not only has to rid the land of the monster, but he has to rescue his bride Lyssa (Lysette Anthony) from the Beast's

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.

The only real fun comes from guessing which cinematic predecessor it'll rip off next.

Pretty dumb, although the glass spider is cool...

Deserves a bigger cult following than it has.

Audience Reviews for Krull

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 :)

A quintessential 1980's fantasy film. The film quite simply contains every important epic storybook fantasy trope, and blends it into a charmingly campy under-the-radar film. What the film lacks in execution, it more than makes up for in ambition and storytelling. A wonderful introduction to the genre of Adventure Fantasy beyond "The Neverending Story", or the genre's comedic spoof, "The Princess Bride"
