The great sorcerer Merlin has returned to Camelot, a kingdom now vulnerable to ill fates and war since the theft of the Holy Grail, its greatest gift and protection. With the help of Jack, an irascible young beggar-thief imbued with his own unruly magic, the fight against unknown dangers begins-to find the Grail, restore it to its rightful place, and bring Camelot back to its glory days.

With all the money that must have been spent it deserved a better director
What a waste of such a good cast. My media students could have directed it better. It is like lord of the rings without the lord or the rings. The script is flaccid and slow. The acting feels like they are completing a contractual obligation. The story line is of course stolen from star wars (she is your Mother Luke) And just who is fighting who? There must be a dozen different accents from English, to Canadian,Scottish, Nordic? The special effects are not up to the 21st century. This could have been filmed just as cleverly at the time of Bewitched(TV 1964). Actually I think I was more impressed by the special effects in that. The shaky camera work is annoying. I presume it was edited for TV. I would hate to watch it on a large screen. The choppy editing made me feel ill most of the time. And what a great idea putting Miranda's voice through vocoder. It does not work at all. I think someone should re-dub this as a comedy.
