Storyline

The passage from this world to the fantasy kingdom of Stormhold is through a breach in a wall beside an English village. In the 1800s, a boy becomes a man when he ventures through the breach in pursuit of a fallen star, to prove his love for the village beauty. The star is no lump of rock, it's a maiden, Yvaine. Tristan, the youth, is not the only one looking for her: three witches, led by Lamia, want her heart to make them young; and, the sons of the dead king of Stormhold want her because she holds a ruby that will give one of them title to the throne. Assisting Tristan are his mother, the victim of a spell, and a cross-dressing pirate of the skies. Will Tristan win his true love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

When Matthew Vaughn pitched the film to executives at Paramount Pictures, the studio wanted a more recognizable name, like Orlando Bloom, to play Tristan. It was only after Vaughn had cast Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Claire Danes in the film, did Paramount agree to let Vaughn cast Charlie Cox as Tristan. See more »

Goofs

When the Bishop is talking to Primus about leaving quickly to find the stone before his brothers, during the camera pan from the ceiling to the actors the audio of the Bishop doesn't match his lip movements, but in the close up shot everything realigns. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really... "Do the stars gaze back?" Now *that's* a question.

If you liked Princess Bride
9 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a lot of fun. The actors really make the movie go the distance though. Without giving away the plot, I would describe it as a new Princess Bride cult favorite that should stand the test of time. You get to see a whole different side to Robert DeNiro in this movie! (Worth the price of admission just for that!) All the elements are there from adventure to romance, and well placed comedy.

People of all ages will enjoy it. (My parents even did!) Good special effects, may be scary for the little ones. Good date movie. Great for some escapism.

Deserves an A. (Hope it does well at the box office)
