A Truly Magical Journey
5 October 1999 | by (Merced, CA) – See all my reviews

With each story comes a different telling of Merlin, Excalibur, Arthur and Camelot.

This story starts before all of the above. It starts with the "creation" of Merlin. Merlin did not just "appear" after all, he also has a past, which this film investigates.

The rest of the story, however, shows that the events around Excalibur and Arthur are a war of magic. Each wizard/wizardess using their magic to control what the humans do to create the outcome they want.

Everyone cheats on each other, and there is even incest.

It is rather slow in the beginning, but it is an entertaining alternative story. It definately focuses on Merlin and who his is.

A rather fine production for a TV movie-to-video film.
