Summary

Summary

Ridley Scott directed this visually striking but narratively bland sword and sorcery saga that mixes ample doses of J.R.R. Tolkien, Thomas Mallory, George Lucas, Joseph Campbell and Dungeons and Dragons into a watered down kettle pot. Many years ago, the Earth was an idyllic land of unicorns and bright sunshine. But the forces of light become embroiled are in mortal battle with the forces of darkness --specifically the evil Prince of Darkness (Tim Curry), who lives in dark caverns below the Earth's surface and has nefarious plans to blot out the light of the sun and rule in a perpetual dark shroud of gloom and shadows forever. Into the breach comes peasant hero Jack (Tom Cruise), who sets up to defeat Darkness and let the sun shine through. He meets a young woman named Lili (Mia Sara) and they fall in love. But Lili is lured into the netherworld by a sultry priestess and has become evil herself. Jack sets his sights on the forces of evil and determines to defeat Darkness and save Lili. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
