Film Review

An enjoyable film but it just lacks something that Lucas's Star Wars Episodes IV to VI films and Raiders of the Lost Ark had.The film borrows heavily from Tolkien, and is a clear attempt to create a new potential franchise. The plot is satisfactory if conventional and unsurprising. It is a journey of a small hobbit like race called Nelwyns, led by a very impressive performance by Warwick Davis as Wilford Ufgood. In fact, the performances by all the actors playing Nelwyns are impressive and enjoyable, and these characters do act as the heart of the film. However, other characters are not as interesting. Val Kilmer's Madmartigan is a stereotype and his performance is very uneven. In some scenes the character works, in others it doesn't. In fact this is part of the films major problem. Individual scenes work, but these scenes don't connect that well to others and the acting performances are in a lot of cases uneven and therefore jar. Some moments performances are broa…

I positively love the fantasy genre. For every great film in this group, there seem to be dozens of stinkers. A high budget is not always necessary, but in most cases it certainly helps a great deal, and Willow is no exception to this rule.The early to mid 80s was the high point of fantasy adventure, in my opinion. There were a number of great films from that time, including Conan the Barbarian, Excalibur, Krull, Dragonslayer, Clash of the Titans, Nevernending Story, Ladyhawke, Legend, and others I probably have missed. As the decade wound down, so too did the number and quality of fantasy adventures. It seemed the "Golden Age" was coming to a close.Then Willow came along and gave us another great one to add to the list. Many of the aforementioned titles (i.e., Conan) were adult movies, with gratuitous amounts of violence and nudity, and were certainly not for everyone. Willow was one for all ages. It had humor, intelligence, a classic storyline, and truly endearing characte…

I hadn't seen this in almost twenty years, and that's probably for the best. Since it's very clearly postured as a children's movie, I can't dock too many points if it's overly silly, hokey and naive, but I do suddenly feel quite sorry for dragging my folks out to see it all those summers ago. Simply put, it's not one of those kid's movies that parents will be surprised to enjoy just as much as their little ones. Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis have a strange sort of charm that manages to shine through the wooden dialog and dated special effects, and the plot has the optimistic, adventurous core of a classic fairy tale, so it's not like there's a total lack of positives. But it also borrows heavily from Tolkien, paling badly by comparison, and it pushes the limits of suspended disbelief too far on more than one occasion. George Lucas's influence is all over the screen, too, from the excessively playful tone to the heavy-handed wipe t…
