OK, it's bad, but not too awful
11 November 2003 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Even though this is a pretty badly made movie, it's something that I just enjoyed when I was a kid. I think because I was in my princess and "damsel in distress" phase.

Watching this movie now, it is pretty ridicules. I mean, the whole history back flash in the beginning, now I know this is a movie and it is supposed to be fairy tale like, but the peasant girl having a beautiful dress and cape with perfect hair and make up? Just didn't make sense. The knights were complete wusses when in real life they were trained to take a sword through a gut and continue in battle.

And the acting, yes it's pretty bad. But again, this was just something that I enjoyed as a kid. For the kids, just let them have fun with it. But as a movie for adults in a serious train of mind, just ignore it.

4/10
