Mandy Patinkin, an actor not known for humor, is particularly wonderful as Inigo, a Spaniard out to avenge the death of his father at the hands...

It's an adventure which reaches back to golden-age Hollywood and the devil-may-care world of Douglas Fairbanks or Tyrone Power playing Zorro, or Errol Flynn playing Robin Hood.

The Princess Bride easily transcends expectations, as a fantasy that has a few pertinent things to say about the genre, including the odd fact that the heroes of such things are often prettier than the heroines.

As you watch this enchanting fantasy, feel free to be thrilled or to giggle, as you wish.

Patinkin, the most dazzling movie swordsman since Errol Flynn, steals the movie with his athletic grace and delivery of lines like: "My name is Inigo Montoya! Prepare to die!"

It manages to be both tongue-in-cheek and achingly sincere.

The Princess Bride is a worthy descendant to the Fractured Fairytales of yore. The characters -- both real and imaginary -- give every frame of The Princess Bride its own magic mirth.
December 7, 2014
A unqualified success that blends New York wit with timeless storytelling; a risky piece of filmaking that never feels so.

...somehow spoofs the conventions of fantasy romance without teetering into irony.

In spirit The Princess Bride recalls The Neverending Story, which also was about a contemporary boy`s fantastic adventure. Reiner's film is likely to please adults more than kids and to last in memory more than most films this fall.

Mandy Patinkin, as Inigo Montoya, deserves special mention. Inigo is the one character in the film who contains real emotional depth, and Patinkin plumbs it.
