Disappointing waste of time and talent
8 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As somebody who grew up with Arthurian legends, I was really looking forward to this movie. Though made in 1981, it stayed unreleased for several years, and as you watch it you'll soon know the reason why. Richard Burton, once a fine actor, is in his final role at the end of a career punctuated with frequent bouts of alcohol. He sleepwalks through his role. Kate Mulgrew, fine as a starship skipper, is thoroughly miscast as a love-struck damsel. The whole movie has an ultra-low budget look - including a minuscule cast - which the plodding script can never overcome. The only plus is the score performed by the Chieftains - if you can stay wake to enjoy it.
