Shallow and disjointed, without any saving graces.
13 March 2000 | by (Grand Junction, CO) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie, it became immediately obvious that the story line gave only cursory lip service to the legend of Merlin. The story line was practically made up as they went along and there was absolutely no continuity. The acting was so bad and the script so ridiculous that by the time the movie was over, I was downright angry. Angry that I had wasted my time watching it and angry that James Hong and Richard Lynch had squandered perfectly good careers on this movie which is an utter waste of film.
