Dark and often scary '80s fantasy hasn't aged well.

A remarkable and bleak fantasy thriller for folks that like their fantasy based on thick characterization and less humongous battles.

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 . . .

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
| Original Score: 3/5

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.
| Original Score: 76/100

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

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