release year: 1984
genre: sci-fi
viewing setting: home laserdisc, 6/27/98
what I expected: I had no idea, no expectations

what I got: weird but entertaining stuff

synopsis: Out of a feud between two warring houses comes much treachery, revenge, and a prophesied one who will save the universe.

impressions: It was confusing, but as someone who never read the books, I was able to watch and pay attention and follow the movie. It had some good points (visual effects, sets, monsters) and some bad ones (voice-overs to keep the less intelligent viewers on track) but all in all, I found it entertaining. I ask for nothing else.

acting: This movie had a very diverse cast, in a variety of roles.

final word: Worth seeing for fans of sci-fi action.

rating: C
