Great Story of Young Merlin - Definitely Worth Watching.
9 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I couldn't keep from commenting, although I rarely do. After reading some of the nasty comments on this film, I couldn't keep myself from commenting. The nasty commenter's obviously didn't watch the same film that I did.

The film I saw, although lower budget, is a very well shot, well thought out story of the young Merlin. It has nicely developed characters, is very well cast, and most of the acting was very good. I was impressed at the local welsh talent in this film. The story moves along well, and you really get caught up in the story, and the characters. I would say this is definitely a director to watch in the future. Also, the girl who played Lady Vivianne... also a real solid talent. I was surprised to learn this was her first feature film. Of course, Jurgen Prochnow turned in a very solid performance as well, which is to be expected.

But anyone who calls this film laughable, or poorly done, either doesn't know good film-making, or simply is trying to put the filmmakers down, for some personal reason. The film has a lot of heart, and I truly hope to see a sequel to this film, as the ending hints to? (I hope?)
