A demon who seeks to create eternal night by destroying the last of the unicorns and marrying a fairy princess is opposed by the forest boy Jack and his elven allies in this magical fantasy. Two different versions of this picture feature soundtracks by either Tangerine Dream or Jerry Goldsmith.Written by

There is another version of this film, shown on UK terrestrial TV. It has the Tangerine Dream soundtrack, and most of the footage detailed above. However, the scene with Meg is shorter, and Lily is merely a Lady, not a Princess. She asks Jack to tell her the future, not teach here rabbit, and there is no shot of Nell's sleeping husband. Watching this version, it pleased me to see that the Unicorn's horn is replaced at the end, and Darkness delivers his final speech, before plummeting into the void. In the scene where Lily dazzles Jack with her charm, most versions have her saying "Let me dazzle you..." but this is omitted in this version. See more »
Legend is one of those movies you either love or hate . It's a fantasy movie but it doesn't really contain a whole lot of action which is probably why many people are turned off by it . But the film is visually stunning and features a good performance by Tim Curry as "Darkness" , Tom Cruise on the other hand looks a bit confused throughout the movie . Also Rob Bottin's Make up is just amazing .
Now things weren't helped by the fact that there are so many versions of this movie and some are vastly better than others . The weakest and shortest of the all is the US theatrical cut because it misses many scenes and ads a few that seem tacked on but worst of all it contains a score by Tangerine Dream instead of the original one by Jerry Goldsmith .
The European cut is better in that it is longer and it features Jerry Goldsmith's score .
The best version however is the Director's Cut featured on The Ultimate Edition DVD . It runs alot longer than any of the other cuts and it is the most coherent cut as well and it features the score by Jerry Goldsmith.
