You are caught up in a morality play... the deepest significance of which the makers of this PG movie are apparently betting the adolescents of America will instinctively comprehend.

Best known as the movie that was filming at Pinewood when the James Bond stage burned down, this is probably one of the few films on director Ridley Scott's CV that he would prefer to forget.

I don't want to remember any more about Legend than to make sure I include it in my ''worst films of 1986'' list and never rent it when it comes out as a video cassette.

If a movie can have so much money and talent poured into it, and still come out this stale and tedious, something larger may be happening than the failure of one misbegotten project.

Legend may turn out to be legendary, but not in the way the filmmakers intended.

The bad thing about Legend is that all the virtuosity of Scott's vision only gets halfway there. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sumptuous, grandly-scaled, and often ludicrous.

The sets, makeup and photography in Ridley Scott's contribution to the fantasy cycle are awesome, but the dialogue and acting are more fitted to the pantomime stage.

Its production design, special effects, and overall look can't be faulted. But its hackneyed story about good versus evil is so insipid and dull that no matter how much one might applaud the visual achievement, the movie is still a gigantic bore.

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

Ultimately Legend is a bit of a wet squib, appealing in small doses but struggling to maintain audience interest for the full running time.

Legend is a fairytale produced on a grand scale... At the same time, the basic premise is alarmingly thin, a compendium of any number of ancient fairytales.

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 . . .

Beautifully shot and designed, but in a cloyingly self-conscious manner, the film lacks narrative drive.
May 26, 2006
Ridiculously self-important and serious.

Ridley's misstep.
