Tremendously good fun Spanish comic book adventure
on 26 January 2015
Okay so it is in Spanish with subtitles, hardly a reason to mark down the film as every other reviewer seems keen to do. Just because this is not a Hollywood bloat-fest with a "big name" or two and endless CGI 3D action scenes does not make it a bad film.
In fact the director manages to bring a pretty accessible Hollywood sheen to the production, along with some art-house creativity in the camerawork. It does have some violence but is suitable for older children certainly (the film is actually rated 12, the 15 rating includes some of the trailers on the disc).
The storyline is classic comic-book adventure silliness, which again seems to annoy a lot of other reviewers. If you enjoy the classic Sword and Sorcery Films like Conan and its many knock-offs, or more modern fare like In the 'Name of the King' or 'Scorpion King' then you will certainly enjoy this.
The American DVD release from Shout Factory (entitled 'Prince Killian and the Holy Grail') does have an English dub track, but the lip-sync is rather poor as the film was entirely recorded in Spanish, this subtitled print is a better way to do.
