Krull Reviews

    Krull is a diamond in the rough. Most people will dismiss it as a standard Star Wars fantasy knock off, which is only partially true. This movie, especially when seen on Blu-ray, is a masterpiece in cinematography.

    The movie doesn't age well. Graphics are bad (even by early 80s standards) and the story was nonsensical.

    I grew up with this and it is still so fun! Dont listen to naysayers! Its an all original fantasy film-not based on a book. They'll never make 'em like this anymore! And also check out the Rifftrax version! LOL! Yes, some of the scenes are a little long but its all so charming and was such an amazing production for the time.

    For swords and sorcery, and maybe with some adolescent eyesight, this is a gem!

    This movie must be judged by the time period it was made in. By that measure it is an awesome movie and I would give it at least an rt score of 80. With good writing and dialog compared to other fantasy movies from the 80s, it bears all the charm and wit of other types of fantasy from that age post Star Trek, Flash Gordon, and Dr Who. It's got THE FREAKING GLAIVE TOO! Combine that with good casting, excellent acting, and an amazing sound track by the James Horner, any review given for this film below 65 or so is a crime.

    (Quick review) Krull is a 1983 sci-fi fantasy directed by Peter Yates. The film stars Ken Marshall as Colwyn, Freddie Jones as Ynyr and Lysette Anthony as Lyssa. A visually interesting film that's perfect to watch on a Sunday afternoon. The cast was steady, the characters were enjoyable, the special effects were dated, the production design and practical effects were memorable, but unfortunately, the story was quite dull, and the pacing was a bit iffy. Overall I give it a 6/10 - good film, would recommend
