Krull (1983)

Synopsis: Blow-dried Prince opens a can of whoop-ass on invading alien army with bladed Frisbee.

What Did I Learn?: If you’re a king, and your planet has been invaded by some bad dudes with superior technology, you MIGHT want to at least temporarily vacate that big, white castle of yours. Who knows – they could attack on the night of your daughter’s wedding.

You Might Like This Movie If: This TV show spoke to you as a kid.

Really?: How did the gang suddenly obtain horses? And where did the flying horses come from? And why did they climb up the dark fortress when they could have used those flying horses?

And how did the Princess know that her hubby had the power to shoot fire from his hands when he had no idea, and...

Rating: Krull is a cheesy, clichéd, badly-written, low-budget sword-and-sorcery rip-off from the early 1980s (Liam Neeson mostly looks embarrassed, and probably did it for the paycheque). Watch this film strictly for laughs. 3.5/10 stars.
