Cast and crew
|Screenwriter:||John Boorman, Rospo Pallenberg|
Simply superb and wonderful adapation of Malory's works. Gamy, gory but breaths life and has, simply put, the best adaptation of Merlin ever done.
This is great film. It tries to mix the best bits if Arthurian Legend together, admittedly it doesn't always get it right. Nicol Williamson's eccentric Merlin is a joy and adds some light humour to the movie without taking away any of the characters worldly wise status. The casting is perfect with a noteable Helen Mirren performance as Morgana. Unfortunately the tight budget shows, some of the battle scenes suffer from a lack of extras. Visually stunning and worthy of it's solitary oscar. This film is a worthy addition to anyones collection.
