Legend (1985)



Reviews and Comments

Director Ridley Scott misfired with this stylish fantasy tale. Apart from some stark, vivid imagery -- both beautiful and fearsome -- there's not much to savor. Tom Cruise looks silly as the unsure hero, and the beasts he must face are the standard unoriginal ugly slimy goblin types. The musical score has some fine points, and the finale is more than a little suspenseful -- but when it's all over, it may well leave a bad taste in your mouth.
