Willow is medieval mishmash from George Lucas, a sort of 10th-century Star Wars tossed together with a plethora of elements taken from numerous classic fables.

At the story level, Willow is turgid and relentlessly predictable.

...high production values, elaborate sets, and gorgeous cinematography make it worth seeing at least once. Yet, I found in it no compelling reasons for a revisit.

Although the dragon is a fantastic early computer generated creation and must have cost a bundle to design, the film itself is too long, too slowly paced, and not very intelligent.

The big budget can't conceal the fact that this fiction is fallow, more rootbound than spellbound.

It works better as a portfolio for ILM techies than an example of such hoary entertainment standards as acting, screenwriting, plotting, and direction.

The world may not need yet another swashbuckling epic adventure, but one with so much heart and soul and fantasy surely is a welcome addition.

A sloppy and intermittently goofy flick, but it still holds enough charm, excitement and good humor to please quest fans.

There's a sunny feeling here that's impossible to deny: a warm, inviting tone unseen in more recent fare.

A charming, albeit greatly compromised attempt at doing a monumental epic in just two hours... the most handsome and technologically accomplished film of the '80s fantasy cycle.
