Audience Reviews for Prince Valiant


A European life action adaption of the well known comic books that doesn't deny its source, even uses some comic sequences as transition scenes. The design is decent, the cast full of familiar names and faces and the knight's adventures are far from boring. Sure, the editing is sometimes a little bumpy, which makes some action scenes look kind of confusing and some of the minor characters would have deserved a less sloppy treatment. But at least we get to see Katherine "Issi Stevens" Heigl's nice bum. Worth a look for fans of the genre, everyone else is not missing much.

Complete cheese! If you wnat soemthing cheesy (and I mean cheeser than "Xena: Warrior Princess") I suggest this film.

This is a pretty good movie in the genre of Medieval period pieces. It is also a fun adventur eof mystery and magic.
