The Players: Staring Ken Marshal and Lysette Anthony with small roles by a pre-Hagrid Robbie Coltrane and a young Liam Neeson
The Take: A paltry $16.5 million
What's a Krull: Krull is the name of the planet on which all the action takes place
Why you should see it:
The DVD case of this movie boasts the quote from Variety, "Excalibur meets Star Wars. Lavishly mounted." One's reaction to this film will likely hinge on how cool such a "meeting" sounds. This movie has swords that shoot lasers, a cyclops, giant spiders, magic, and aliens that scream when they die. Not least of all, the film has a bladed boomerang-like shuriken called the Glaive that can inflict some serious damage on the enemy Beast. The movie follows the standard quest format, but its quite entertaining. Also, it has a great soundtrack (click here for sample tracks). This is a film that every self respecting geek has to see.
