More fun that I expected., 3 June 2013
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England

Harvey Keitel plays medieval soldier Klever, who is keen to earn himself a knighthood and win the hand of the Count of Rue's beautiful daughter Princess Alba (Maria Lamor); unfortunately for Klever, the princess is more interested in Ix (Miguel Bosé), a mysterious knight who wears indestructible armour and who commands a fearsome dragon. In reality, Ix is a visitor from another galaxy and his dragon a spacecraft. Kinski plays alchemist Boetius, who befriends the space traveller and helps him to defeat Klever in both combat and love.

I don't know what I found more surprising: Harvey Keitel starring alongside Klaus Kinski in a Spanish 80s fantasy/sci-fi/comedy, or the fact that I enjoyed the film more than I expected I would (Star Knight appears on a cheap 50-film box set of sci-fi obscurities, the majority of which are downright awful): the special effects in this one are pretty decent, the alien technology is well designed, there are some genuinely funny moments, the characters are delightfully daft (with the Green Knight being the funniest—the human equivalent of Sir Didymus in Labyrinth), and the story is rather charming.

Quite what Keitel and Kinski are doing in appearing in such frivolous nonsense, I do not know, but they seem to be having a fair amount of fun. As did I.
