drena-77692 - 27 October 2022 Escapism at it's best First, everyone says escapism as it is a bad thing. It is another way to relax. This does it well, interesting story, enough like usual fairy tales to not chase away an audience, but different enough to keep people interested. The acting is excellent. My only complaint would be the obviously fake facial hair on half the male cast. The story could of been fleshed out a bit here an there for example the background of the girl and the two potential suitors..and the relationship of the King and his love interest. The quick explanations got the job done but about 15 more minutes would of pushed the movie a little better. Overall did not regret watching.
Luv2Spooge - 30 June 2022 slow and boring It's a family friendly fantasy movie, which you don't have to worry about a lot of bad elements. However, it is dreadfully boring, like a teen movie. 30 mins in, that's a 3rd of the movie, the plot still haven't moved from the introduction and it is just littered with pointless teen girl conversations.
I wish they did it much more like Lord of the Rings or the Hobbit.
