Reincarnated Lady of the Lake and knight John Pope must stop evil immortal wizard Pendragon from obtaining Merlin's Sword in the Stone on Halloween in the present, which would create October 32nd and end time. Wizard Leong helps them.
Any film about Ronnie Biggs has potential, as did this film. Paul Freeman makes a good Biggs. Steven Berkoff is, as always worth watching.
However, what really drags this film down is the amount of footage of parades and local events. At one point, I really had to ask myself if I was watching a film about Ronnie Biggs or a Tourist guide to Rio (which is what it often felt like). There is however, some excellent location work thrown in.
Paul Freeman should play Biggs again. Perhaps a film about his return to England.
I wish I could recommend this film. Unfortunately, I can't.
