    BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This movie is great, I haven't enjoyed a good movie in a long time. The sex scenes are cool, its got sad stuff and happy stuff. The only thing I don't understand is, why didn't they have a sex scene with Merlin and Nimue?

    Merlin

    Okay movie about Merlin, King Arthur and the creepy goth like sorceress Mab. Sam Neill makes a pretty good Merlin and in the film it has good special effects and okay battle scenes.

    Best Ever

    I have been watching this movie sence i was 6 years old. I love it so much, it did bend the story a little but it was still amazing. I'm a BIG King Aurther fan and this movie is great!

    Awesome movie

    Very good movie, excellent casting, special effects were very good. The history (or mythology if you like) is quite accurate I think, from what I've read of Le Morte D'Arthur, tho Morgan Le Fay just wanted to kill Arthur and was married to Sir Lot of Orkney. And Nimue was the Lady of the Lake and trapped Merlin after he taught her magic. But very cool movie :)

    Eh

    I had very high expectations for this. There is a very good cast assembled, and the special effects are surprising, but the twisting of the tale is a bit difficult, as well as why on earth Queen Mab has Laurie Cabot's eye makeup - very annoying.

    You Have To Watch This Movie!!!!!

    This video is AWESOME! If you like magic, fairies, nomes, griffins and stuff like that, this is the movie you should watch. And the cool part is at the end when Merlin finds his long-lost girlfriend. My favorite characters in this movie were Merlin and the Lady of the Lake.
