One of the better Merlin movies of the last several years.
I found the movie to be very entertaining, which is really what is important. Right? The story was interesting. There were one or two surprising twists to the plot. The acting was quite solid. The special effects were good (not great, but this wasn't a very high-budget film).
Nia Ann as Lady Nimue and Carys Eleri as Lady Vivianne were excellent, as was Simon Lloyd Roberts as a youthful, inexperienced Merlin.
(A side note: Nia Ann, a relative newcomer to acting, really stole my heart away. I look forward to watching her career grow.)
The way themovie ended obviously left it open to a possible sequel. If it happens, I am very much looking forward to watching it.
All in all, a really great movie!
