Synchs up in places with the Pink Floyd album The Wall. Including the baby in the basket being on screen while the baby cries at the beginning of Is There Anybody Out There, and the villages elder moving his fingers while the album is playing a keyboard solo until the old man makes a fist which coincides perfectly with a single drum beat. An interesting way to kill a couple hours. See more »

Meegosh... did we do the right thing?
Absolutely. There's nothing to worry about.
[They hear Elora crying overhead, and look up to see her being carried by a hawk ridden by a brownie]
Yaaah, ha-ha! I stole the baby, I stole the baby, ha-ha! Yah!

I remember seeing this film in theaters back in '88 and long to see it again on the big screen. There is a motherload of crappy fantasy flicks out there and this one is better than most. I was kinda young when I saw it and didn't find it too violent but some parents may think it gruesome at times. I myself feel that gave it an edge. Along with swordplay there are nasty trolls,a 2-headed beast,mean-spirited characters and some intense scenes at the end. Of course there are lots of special effects. This was a technically well made film with awesome cinematography and interesting locations. Every now and again Fox airs the movie but it's 2 1/2 hr running can be really cut. Ya gotta see it!
