Willow

One of the better fantasy/adventure movies to come out of the 80's. Warwick Davis (who is also the Leprechaun) is the title character who is faced with the task of delivering a prophesied baby to safety so she can bring about the destruction of the evil queen/sorceress.
I always found the Willow character annoying but enjoy the surrounding cast. The tiny Brownies who accompany him crac... read more

''Magic is the bloodstream of the universe. Forget all you know, or think you know. All that you require is your intuition.''

Willow, a small farmer/apprentice magician, meets Madmartigan, a great swordsman, and together they journey through a war-torn land of magic and monsters, to save a baby princess from death at the hands of an evil queen.

Being overshadowed by Lucas' most well known masterpieces (Star Wars Saga), Willow isn't as popular. This doesn't matter, due to the cult following this epic-fantasy entails. I can see why it has a following and I'm a part of it hahaha. Fantasies are very enjoyable and they're either a 'hit' or a 'miss'. There is no miss my any means in this film.

The story involves dwarves, witche... read more
View all Willow reviews
Description: Though Willow was one of director Ron Howard's few box-office disappointments, it definitely deserves a second look. At once an epic celebration and a gentle spoof of the sword-and-sorcery genre, the film concerns the efforts by little person Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) to protect a sacred infant from the machinations of a wicked queen (Jean Marsh). One source book has assessed the picture as a combination of The Ten Commandments and Snow White. Executive producer George Lucas has (through the conduit of screenwriter Bob Dolman) added elements of his own Star Wars saga to the stew. Incidentally, this is the film where co-star ... (more)

Decent fantasy film

“Now I don't think Willow is the best fantasy film ever made(a three way-toss up between Pan's Labyrinth, Edward Scissorhands and The NeverEnding Story) nor is it the worst(Dungeons & Dragons). It does have problems, but I thought it was entertaining.

My first problem is Warwick Davis, now his title character is a very charming and likable character, but Davis's performance is somewhat uneven. At first it is uncomfortable and bland, then as the film progressed he got better as we got to know the character better. Another problem is that the special effects are a little dated especially the beast with the two heads. My final flaw is that there are one or two scenes in the middle half that felt a little forced.

However, thanks to a quirky, funny and honest script, it i” read more

“80's fantasy, there really is nothing that compares to it and this flick is a fine example of it, every aspect of it just comes across as grand, it has all you could ever ask for in a fantasy movie, mythical creatures, a likable hero, magic, an evil villainess, and wonderfully whimsical worlds and environments. Warwick Davis shines in the role and the creatures and SFX are all top notch, kudos especially to the team behind it all and also to director Ron Howard, in addition to this there are a lot of scenes I love about this. Including the infamous 'you're all pigs' sequence, yes I like a scene where people get turned into pigs...don't kinkshame or witch-hunt me for liking an animal transformation scene.” read more

"There is the whole plot point, where the evil queen, doesn't mince words over the fact, that she wants to sacrifice and vanquish, a baby to an another dimension. Also, there are a lot of epic battle scenes, trolls, and a massive fire breathing dragon, with two heads, that is one of the most impressive looking dragons, that I have seen in a film, yet. "
