Predictable and highly derivative.

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.

Willow feels like the kind of movie that might have worked considerably better on the printed page.

It's forced, formulaic and sadly lacking in that sense of magic that's at the root of all successful fantasy.

For easy-to-please five-year-olds of all ages.

Though children will mostly be enthralled by the spectacles, even they might notice the weak story protruding through the industrial magic.

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.
