Flawed, but You Have to Appreciate the Effort
14 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted to see a movie based on "The Legend of Zelda," so you can probably imagine my surprise and delight when I stumbled across this film online. It looks like the movie I've wanted to see for years, but is it really any good? Well, yes and no.

The thing to keep in mind when watching this movie is that it is an independent film made by "Zelda" fans on a really low budget. The acting ranges from passable to awful, most of the special effects consist of obvious green screen effects and the editing and camera-work are often clumsy. The plot is fairly faithful to the fan-favorite "Ocarina of Time" game, but that means it eventually consists of the heroes running around and collecting things so they can kill the bad guy and save the world. The characters have little motivation beyond that, so they come off as kind of bland.

And yet, I can't bring myself to hate this movie. Everyone involved in this film put a lot of effort into it, and their love for the source material is evident. It is flawed, but I have to appreciate the fact that it exists at all.

"The Hero of Time" is definitely a movie for "Zelda" fans. I don't think I can recommend it to anyone else, but it's worth a look for fans of the games. It's easy to find online, so check it out.
