Hey... Hawk had elves with repeating arrow action and a dwarf...

PLUS!!!! Jack Palance as the half-faced evil brother villain...

How CAN you go wrong!?!

It's a classic movie. It was supposed to be a series, never got off the ground. but we always said. that movie was taken from someones D&D gaming adventure.  The GM wrote down what ahppened. and someone got hold of it and said .. lets make a movie.
can't get better than that!

Might be that it had a filming budget or $42.57 and a 6 pack.

Quote from: "Pathos"
You can go wrong because it sucked.

I remember staying up really really late to watch it on TBS back in the early 80's.

What a waste of time.

But of course I'd already seen Excalibur by then so the bar on fantasy was set pretty high.

John Boorman's Excalibur is probably the worst interpretation of that mythos ever... I love it... but it's melodramatic and poorly acted... Completely out of period and silly...

I love it... But the ONLY reason it's better than Hawk the slayer, is production costs and setting....

Oh I agree. I was already a big Arthur fan at the time and I was yelling at the screen the whole time. But as a fantasy it set the standard for productiion design for a long time to come.

And I disagree about the acting. I thought it was good. Also lots of people in it who got big later. Like Gabriel Byrne, Liam Neeson, and Patrick Stewart. The acting rocked IMO.

AND it gave me a HUGE hard-on for Helen Mirren that lasted for YEARS!!!

since we are on Arthur. I liked the current movie about Arthurius. Over the top like many movies in y2k but it had appeal.

Well it's a difference of opinion of course. But it was an over-the-top style of production to begin with so I think those guys did good. It was actually Nicol Williamson that made me cringe once in awhile but the rest worked.

Take advantage of that. It doesn't happen very often.

I ran in to Patrick Stewart once in LA, literally.  After we picked ourselves up I thanked him because on of his acting roles motivated me into acting and stunt work.  He started to say how Star Trek's been a big influence on so many and I cut him off and said "NO!  Excalibur!  You played the only real person in it.  I forgot that you were a character, everyone else was either weak or over the top but you...you were an inspiration," or something to that effect.  It knocked him out of his shoes.  We talked about acting and fight scenes gone wrong and right for half an hour after that.

I'll see your BS and up the ante to http://www.eskimo.com/~rkj/death.html.  Working with our heroes of film and fantasy is even more fun.
