- Synopsis & information: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089469/
- Who is it for? Those who like a good fantasy movie and don't mind if it looks a little old.
This was for a long time the gold standard for fantasy movies, until TLOTR, and it still posses its magnificent aura. I consider it one of Ridley Scott's finest piece.
I'll review the Director's Cut at a later date.
