Yes, the story is as old as the stars
Yes, there's a certain amount of silliness
However, rather after the fashion of A Knights Tale and the first pirates film this film carries itself well, the gags work, there's a nice touch of the darkness that fairytales always had before political correctness got hold of them and the cast take it seriously enough.
Where possible the actors are allowed to get on with it rather than being CGI'd over or swung around on wires - and they respond with performances that all should be proud of.
Clearly this is a film that the director and DoP cared a lot about and poured something of themselves into.
