When in the trapped spiked room, the spikes are obviously stopped or pulled by the actors when they grab them, especially by the actor on the floor who is supposedly having a spike pass through him. It's obvious he is pulling the spike toward himself. See more »
'Fantasy', in the traditional 'Dungeons & Dragons' sense, in the movies is often seen by the general public as a warning sign (and often rightly so). On the surface, Krull does seem like standard fantasy cliche. Prince must rescue princess from monster. Not very promising so far, is it? Already starting to lose interest? YOU FOOLS! Consider these additional elements: An orchestral soundtrack by the mighty James Horner (Titanic), which is possibly the best score he has ever written, possibly even THE best score ever written; A brilliant mostly-British cast, including Liam Neeson, Robbie Coltrane, Tucker Jenkins :) and a host of other distinguished actors; A script which is so corny that it cannot fail to be fantastic when delivered with such hammed-up enthusiasm by the actors; and finally a few brilliant touches such as the boyhood-dream-weapon the Glave - a giant mind-controlled shuriken. This film falls in to the same category as Flash Gordon which was released a few years before - epic, brit-centric, totally entertaining masterpieces of camp grandeur. Don't write it off until you've seen it enough to appreciate its subtleties.
