Bad Film
27 August 2010 | by brave_mike1314See all my reviews

This Movie is pretty bad, to begin with something, the framing of the entire movie doesn't go anywhere beyond CU. The SFX are OK for a low budget, but an army of 30 ugly men is not.... Most of the costumes where a little off. One of the warriors didn't know how to wear his own helmet! But one of the worst thing if not the worst part is that the sword "Exalibur" is a rip off of Glamdring, Gandalf's Sword. If you are going or make a movie with low budget and bad acting, at least try to be original with Props.... I strongly recommend to see this movie as an example of how a movie shouldn't be made. It had a good cover in the DVD which made me think it would be worth it, however after the first 10 minutes I decided to finish the movie just for the fun of it, since I wasn't going to get anything out of it, by the time they showed "Excalibur" I was totally off... Watching this movie to the very end (out of respect more than anything else) was a huge pain. You couldn't pay me enough to watch it again.
