The Princess Bride Reviews
Fencing, fighting, giants, revenge, true love. The Princess Bride starring: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, and Mandy Patinkin, speaks of a quest for love and the battle to obtain it. Princess Buttercup (played by Robin Wright) falls in love with a farm boy named Wesley (Cary Elwes). Wesley soon sails off to find a job in order to pay for their marriage, however he would never make it to find a job. After Wesleys death the war seeking Prince Humperdink makes Buttercup his bride-to-be. Buttercup gets kidnapped by a genius named Vizzini, a master swordsman named Inigo, and a giant named Fezzik. Buttercup's kidnappers are followed by a stranger, and after they are defeated the stranger reveals himself. Afterwards the action begins to pick up and the quest for love truly begins. The movie keeps the story going, and the characters have strong morals that drive them to the end. It tells a good story, and presents challenges to overcome that are eventually solved. The special effects of the R.O.U.S's (Rodents Of Unusual Size) were clunky. Although as fezzik was climbing up the cliffs of insanity scene was suspenseful, and the way it was made was cool, Vizzini could have been a little easier on Fezzik. Overall I would give the movie 4 out of 5 stars, and recommend this movie to all audiences!
It is a classic fairy tale that influenced modern pop culture and we still ear quotes in popular TV shows (such as big bang theory )
