Entertaining enough
20 August 2009 | by fboecomSee all my reviews

I just saw it at Lufthansa, maybe not the best motivation but I was pleasantly surprised anyway. For humor a German film would not be my first choice. I took the original German sound with English subtitles and appreciated that (being Dutch). The movie is not spectacular in its story or plot and has a classic happy end, but the mix between let's say full medieval scenery and very contemporary culture I found interesting and funny enough. For sure, there is some sex, but more as sound than image and on the level of relatively modest western moral standards, but I would say that adds to the fun of watching this movie. So why this movie? The photography is done very well, very nice to look at, spectacular fighting scenes sometimes, beautiful characters and clothing. It can be slow at times, and indeed never really hilarious, but actually I find that more of a compliment than when it would have gone over the top there. When you do not want a Hollywood film once again, don't want to be annoyed but instead just have entertaining watch time, this movie is a good choice.
