well i have to say it wasn't that bad. sorta liked the setting. swords were set to "dark age". costumes were bad but the fortifications were good. a little slow at times but none the less I'm glad I watched it.

I liked that movie as well. Well enough to add it to the DVD library.  :)

I've added it to the Christmas list. I liked it too, but I only saw it the one time in the theater. I need to refresh my memory.

I like this movie, even if they put more emphasis into the romantic aspects and less of the combat...still, it was decently acted, the actors used to portray their parts did so ably.  Definitely one for the collection.
