With the help of his friend and neighbor Norrick (Ron Perlman), he travels to Stonebridge where his wife and son are. Before he arrives, the Krugs, controlled by the wizard Gallian (Ray Liotta), kill his son and capture his wife. Farmer, with the help of Bastian (Will Sanderson), his brother-in-law, and Norrick sets out to find and rescue his wife.

At the beginning of the battle in the woods, the command given to the Archers is "Fire!" This command is derived from the use of fire weapons (cannons etc), which are not present in the film's setting. The correct command would be "Loose!" See more »
I knew you'd come.
I told you I would.
I mean, I felt it. I felt it before you came.
You are developing your powers well, Muriella. Our time together is paying off!

First: Burt Reynolds is the king! :) Cool and cheesy like a Shatner marathon.
Secondly, there is enough eye candy for everyone.
I didn't think I'd find a hidden Oscar-worthy film, but I knew I might have a great time hootin' at bad lines of overwrought dialogue. I did, but I also found myself following a nice B movie story with various nits to argue with friends(Why the women are mostly wasted in their roles, another talky villain?, mostly dropped plots suddenly found, but only for fight scenes), but still? I'd recommend this for a weekend matinée or a dollar movie selection.
