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.

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

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

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