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.
