Their adventure is also, of course, fraught with danger.

A lot more watchable than Richard Rich’s King and I
I too enjoyed this movie. It isn’t flawless, but few movies are. The animation is good, if a little bland in the musical numbers, with exception of the splendid witchcraft scene. As for the songs, they aren’t actually that bad. My favourites were “The Prayer”, “Looking Through Your Eyes”, and “If I didn’t have you.” The other songs were not as good, but not mind numbingly awful. The biggest problem was the singing voices, they didn’t match the voice acting. Celine Dion is a very good singer, but her voice is too powerful for Julianna, but it’s good they didn’t ask someone like Barbara Streisand, another excellent singer with a too-big voice for the character. Same with Andrea Corr. Another problem was the script, which had its ups and downs. The reasons why some children didn’t laugh at the two-headed dragon, which was the best character, is because they wouldn’t in a million years have understood the pop culture references, though they were funny. As for the voice talents they were a mixed bag. Jessalyn Gilsig and Cary Elwes started off a little bland, and Gary Oldman relishes his role as the villain, if a little over the top at times. On a positive note, Eric idle and Don Rickles were hilarious, and Jane Seymour made a sincere Julianna. Pierce Brosnan was also an interesting choice, but if I were a director, I wouldn’t have picked John Gielgud to voice Merlin, although he would have been good if it was live-action. In conclusion, an above average movie, with a story that started off well, but ran out of steam too early. If I wanted to see it again, I would. 7/10 Bethany Cox
Enjoyable but flawed Arthurian Adventure
This is a film that I have watched several times now with the kids and find myself enjoying it more each time.
Previous comments have compared it unfavourably to Disney but this seems unfair – it is clearly a separate product, darker and more cynical than the works of that other company. The song by dragons Devon and Cornwall – ‘Without You’- stands in stark contrast to, say, the sentiments of ‘You and Me Together’ in Disney’s Oliver and Company. Neither could I imagine Ruber, with his particular vein of sarcastic villainy, appearing in the products of that more family centred studio.
The weakest individual moment, for me at least, is anachronistic. Devon and Cornwall sing about their mutual hostility, and their song is animated with some twentieth century props and in-jokes. This is a jarring note in a film which otherwise tries to maintain some sort of historical integrity. It is funny but creates a disruption that is hard to forget. (More acceptable is the ‘Do you feel clucky?’ line later on)
There has been some criticism of the animation quality, and it does seem to vary. Some of the movements of animals, in particular, seem jumpy at a distance. However balancing out these weaknesses are such scenes as the evocation of a cold morning, when Kayley hears of her father’s death, and Ruber’s splendid witchcraft scene.
Overall the film suffers from being underwritten – one wishes more time was taken in filling out character and incident before the final attack on Camelot. Cayley and Garrett fall in love too easily, while Devon and Cornwall (delightfully witty and charming creations) have too little to do. And what happens to Merlin? He’s reduced to flying a bird. It’s a shame as other supporting characters, like the Gryphon and the axe chicken are very well judged, and completely memorable. More unforgivable is the character of King Arthur, who is just bland.
On the plus side, this is still a good film, utterly free of pretension. Ruber’s magical creation of his henchman is a highlight, a demoniac sequence that is quite thrilling, a brilliant musical set piece that moves the plot forward, sparking huge suspense. His creations are delightfully original in themselves, frightening and intriguing in equal measure. Watching it again I was reminded of how little of this quality of real wonder appears in another non-Disney animation, Prince of Egypt – a much more favourably received work, and far more earnest in tone.
This Arthurian adventure can be quite revealing in comparison when taken this as an unofficial sequel to The Sword in The Stone, throwing stereotypical Disney values and methods into greater relief. In its own right it is very enjoyable in any case, although it could have been even better with some extended work on the script.
