Audience Reviews for Merlin and the Book of Beasts

This is SO bad it's not even "kitch". The thing that seals the deal is the atrocious acting. who's worse Mordred, the knights or Merlin in this joke? I think Merlin wins for the worse acting ever!!! The others follow close behind. Who ever cast this film should render their salary back to the crew, because they did the best job I'm sure. Costume and Production design is pretty good. Oh!! The horses were great!! Really Sad. I mean the actor who plays Merlin has played in some pretty good shows and probably did well, I guess his terrible acting in THIS inferior piece of work could be blamed on the Director and Producers. I must add that I rarely write such bad reviews of film/TV because I feel everything is a work of labor & few people can pull off anything, but this is ridiculous, everything about this production is pathetic, not campy, but truly lame. I want to know WHO were the people making this?

I thought for some reason this was going to be a horror movie, turns out Morgana who tricked King Arthur & had a son by him Named Morgan (?) aka The Arcadian has taken over the Pendragon castle as if he's the rightful heir. Avalynn is now one of the Knights of the round table as well as being protected by what's left of them being she is King Arthur's daughter. (& Rightful heir) The arcaidian is using the book of beasts That Merlin Created to try to get his sister & create a true pendragon. He also plans to capture Merlin in the book. So we've got an adventure tho' not really thrilling. This looks like cheese that would be on Syfy channel. Parts are reminisce of Monty Python (There's one part I could't help but think of the Limbless knight ROTF) if not made for Syfy channel then this is someother kind of made for tv crap. Its seems to be part spoof, nothing really original other than instead of Morgana actually bing in it its her basterd son. Etc D

Horrible dialogue, bad acting, and a laughable plot make this film so bad that it almost rebounds back into good......almost.
