Excalibur — This was once the finest movie on Arthurian legends — 6*/10

  • Story: Makes you want to see more of the legends.
  • Characters: Simple. The most interesting one are Merlin, Uther and Morgana.
  • Dialogs: Too structured, not natural enough.
  • Scenario: Well paced.
  • Actors: Good performances, except for those playing Arthur and Lancelot who are unfortunately the worst of the lot. Cast members include Liam Neeson, Patrick Stewart, and Helen Mirren.
  • Photography: Acceptable. Sets, decors and costumes show their age from time to time.
  • Sound: Nice music and score, sometimes amazing. ADR is a bit below expectation. The ambient foley sounds are inadequate when it comes to weapons and armors.
  • Special effects: Not too many of them, aged badly.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Those who want to watch a fantasy classic. Don't expect too much, take into consideration its age.
