another variation on merlin and the round table
20 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i'm a sucker these costume rehashes of Merlin and the knights of the Round Table. not much in the way of character development in this film

  • i guess you're required to know the general story well enough to


understand who/what the characters reference.

Merlin, who i guess is supposed to be one of the leads, plays the character like a homeless person who's inhaled too many dangerous chemicals and is permanently deranged. 'daisy,' from Dead Like Me, tries to provide a moral center for the film, without success.

the rest of the cast stays in the background. even the 'bad guy' has minimal screen time and doesn't make much of an impact.

made it too the end only by using the 'fast forward' function of our DVR.
