I wonder if the writers of this depressingly bad sequel to the brilliant 'Merlin' actually watched the origional. It was like they had thrown away the origional concept and decided to change it all around. Firstly, if you cannot get the origional Arthur, then please don't confuse us by bringing him back from the dead. Secondly, The Lady of the Lake is a) meant to be dead, and b) is NOT evil at all in the original and there is no explaination as to why she is now.
Nimue was such an important role in the original, so why no mention of her.
I won't spoil the ending for those who are yet to watch the film, but considering the end of the first film, it really makes no sense at all, and just left me screaming at the TV.
The acting of Sam Neill is brilliant, and Miranda Richardson is always superb in these dark roles, but I have to question why they read the script and still did it despite it's contrasts to the brilliant story of 'Merlin'.
By all means, however, watch the DVD, It's fun just to pick it apart!
