17 minutes of fun, then *Yawn* .

But the worst thing about this movie is that it's just boring.

Bored of the Rings .

The storyline was however quite entertaining.

The music is very overbearing and repetitive.

It is fast paced with just the right mix of seriousness and playfulness.

The movie is pleasantly free from overbearing Hollywood cliché humor that most simple comedies are contaminated with.

The story, (much less, the boring drab sets) is just not strong enough to hold interest.

Funny, suspenseful, heartwarming, and filled with great cameos (Val Kilmer, Joan Plowright, Stefan Jürgens), way to go for the fairy tale genre!!

I'm sorry for the decent actors who were in this yawn-inducing trudgery.

Pretty dull .

For a fantasy comedy, the story was very dull and the effects unspectacular.

It makes everything that happens in the movie feel disjointed and also quite messy.

Extremely boring .

funny and highly entertaining .

Moreover, if there is, today, a more persuasive and more engaging actor than James Purefoy, I, for one, would be delighted to witness the portrayal or performance.

James Purefoy was equally enjoyable - he seems very much the natural, whether on horseback, wielding a sword, or doing a classic double-take.

stupid and boring plot.

It was an action packed, romantic, wholesome family movie.

Waste of time and resources.

It tries to be an action rom-com but it's tiresome.

But THIS one was enjoyable to watch.

We have poor village children speaking the Queen's English (RP) as well as many other goofs including the statement that forks were a Middle Eastern invention (they originated in China in 2400 BC) I could go on and on but suffice to say it's a waste of your time and eminently unsuitable for children due to it's ideological revisionism.

The romance is contrived at times, and the villains are clearly marked.

Patrick Swayze looked bored, like he would rather be surfing than riding a horse.

It was pleasantly enjoyable for what it was.

I rented this one for some evening's mind pablum and my wife and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

In the end you will ask yourself "why did I waste my time and money with that crap when I could have watched the plants growing or the clouds moving".

It's an entertaining little film that should put grins on young boys and girls alike on a lazy weekend.

The film thrives on the performances of its main cast and possesses a simply but entertaining plotline.

90 minutes of "Not bad, kinda enjoyable " .

It was a light highly entertaining film, one that you can sit down and watch at any time.

If you fall asleep during this one, don't worry, all the fun was at the beginning.

The sets, costumes and even the acting were respectable and entertaining.

Michael Clarke Duncan, while having a small role, was enjoyable, and would have liked to see have seen his character more fully developed.

Then I was watching Sci Fi Channel on a boring Saturday and suddenly this movie appeared (under the generic name of "Dragon Sword").

Then the movie gets boring.

Everything is told so formulaic and predictable that nothing ever comes as a surprise- or across as well written.

One of the worst movies i ever watched.
