Sometime during the second hour I pinpointed the trouble: The movie is so full of tricks and gimmicks that it doesn't care enough about being just plain funny. Full Review

Willow borrows shamelessly from sources as varied as the Bible, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Wizard of Oz and even from Star Wars itself, plastering it all together in a witless, muddled pastiche. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- It's forced, formulaic and sadly lacking in that sense of magic that's at the root of all successful fantasy. Full Review

Willow exchanges the high-tech gleam of the Star Wars universe for the low-tech look of a Tolkienesque world, but otherwise it's business as usual. Full Review

Willow is medieval mishmash from George Lucas, a sort of 10th-century Star Wars tossed together with a plethora of elements taken from numerous classic fables. Full Review

...A perfectly agreeable tale of magic....It leaves a friendly glow and a sense of a magical world lovingly evoked...

Rating: 2/5 -- The plot grinds on inescapably to its predictable climax, with the viewer fully aware of what awaits long before the events unfold. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on a story by STAR WARS creator George Lucas, WILLOW is director Ron Howard's fantasy world of medieval adventure. WILLOW stars Val Kilmer as Madmartigan, a swashbuckling warrior, and Warwick Davis as the title character. In a mythical kingdom, the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda (Jean Marsh) plots to kill all infants so that the newborn princess, Elora, will never take over the throne. But a midwife sets the baby adrift in a river, and she is rescued by Willow, a farmer in Nelwyn, a peaceful village of trolls, fairies, and little folk. Willow and Madmartigan begin a quest to deliver the baby from evil while being chased by Queen Bavmorda's daughter, Sorsha (Joanne Whalley), sent to bring the baby back to Nockmaar. Director Howard benefited from his affiliation with George Lucas on the film--Lucas's company, Industrial Light and Magic, contributed the Oscar-nominated special effects. Lucas, the executive producer of WILLOW, went on to create a series of books based on the world of WILLOW, the SHADOW WAR series.

Plot Synopsis:

In this quest fantasy, a timid yet valiant Halfling is entrusted with delivering a royal infant from evil. His journey is often dangerous and sometimes comical as he meets up with some colorful characters along the way. Academy Award Nominations: Best Sound Effects Editing, Best Visual Effects.
