In most of the other "king arthur" movies, Merlin usually plays a very useless and small role. But this movie is all about Merlin and Magick. Sam Neill is a really good actor. He is playing a very,intelligent,handsome(!) and pretty mighty sorcerer who is fighting for the justice and goodness. Especially Jason Done who is playing Mordred, he is a very good actor and probably he was the most evil guy in this movie. Miranda Richardson did also a good job as Mab. She was supposed to be evil but i have never seen such a good looking woman. No matter how evil she is. Martin Short (Frik) was funny as usual. Rutger Hauer had a small role in this movie but i liked his acting and the character Lord Vortigern. I cant say enough good things about the players. They were all bright and intelligent. I have seen this movie for dozens times. And i dreamed about the movie the whole week when i first watched it. And also, i think zillions of people (especially teenagers) tried to learn more about magicK and sorcery after watching this movie. watch it and learn why =) Damn, i was gonna forget Isabella Rosellini. She was pretty PRETTY but i somehow did not like her acting. I think it has just something to do with her weak character.
