Legend is not without whimsical touches, but it surely could have used more humor and invention.

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

With such spectacular visuals, quality of performance isn't really the point here, but an unrecognisable Curry is excellent.

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

Could have been a genre classic if it had benefited from a meatier screenplay and a studio that didn't butcher the final product.
