"Format: Blu-Ray Viewing: 1st Thoughts: I had been searching for this film for the longest time and it did have an interesting concept with some dope visuals. But overall it just felt a little flat and underwhelming."

Upeasti kuvattuna taide-elokuvana alkava The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey muuttuu nykyaikaan päästessään hassuvitsejä sisältäväksi 80-luvun seikkailuelokuvaksi, jossa keskiajalta saapuneet matkalaiset ihmettelevät 80-luvun maailmanmenoa kuin Spock "
