Merlin: 90s Camp Edition
Yes, this film is full of cheesy acting, dated effects and interesting production choices but the film excels in one area: the story.
Told from the perspective of Merlin, played amazingly by Sam Neill, this tale takes us all the way from Merlin as a child all the way up to the aftermath of the classic events of Arthurian Legend.
The movie doesn't shy away from showing you that everyone is failed. This is not a classic tale of good versus evil but rather how human beings, even with good intentions, will repeatedly make mistakes that have consequences.
The story captivates and performances, even the more cheesy ones, do intrigue an enjoyable 90s romp through Arthurian Legend.
