One of Ridley Scott's more ambitious fantasies, the story gets bogged down in murky details. The story is a relatively simple fairy tale. A young warrior (Tom Cruise) sets off to destroy the lord of darkness (Tim Curry) and rescue the beautiful lady in distress (Mia Sara).

The acting is okay, but it's heavily overshadowed by the lavish production designs and special effects. Curry is unrecognizable as Darkness, and he plays him with a certain flare. But because of the huge amounts of make-up, it could be just about anyone under those tons of latex. The movie is almost completely devoid of humor, something it desperately needs to help you wallow through the dark, depressing story line. If for nothing else, see it for the magnificent production values, instead of the dreary story.

My Rating = Two Stars
