This has always been one of my favorite movies for some reason. That doesn't necessarily mean that it's good; just that I like watching it.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone searching for a good fantasy title from the 80's. I would put "Krull" right up there with Ladyhawke, both Conan's, Willow, and the Dark Crystal.
What separates this fantasy film from the others is a plot involving a more science fiction- type element. Visitors from somewhere in space have landed on a planet named Krull to wreak havoc. After they snag up our hero, Prince Colwyn's bride-to-be, he goes on a quest to save her with the help of a star-shaped boomerang with knives called the Glaive and a band of strange characters including a cyclops and a goofy guy who can change into animals.
Good time fun worth the rental price. What else do you need here?
For film buffs, check out early performances by Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane.
