Format: DVD
Despite the predictable, formulaic plot, this film contains plenty of visual and symbolic creativity to entertain sci fi and fantasy lovers. Surreal images and stunning filmography dominate the entire movie, and sufficiently overshadow the somewhat weak characterization and acting that is no more than satisfactory. The pre-computer age special effects are good enough and, most importantly, put to good use. The plot maintains a consistent pace and doesn't become sidetracked from its original aim. The music is an upbeat, John Williams-like symphonic composition.
The story takes place on the planet Krull, which has been besieged by an evil entity known as the Beast. He inhabits the Black Fortress, a mountainous structure that changes location at every sunrise. Price Colwyn embarks on a quest to destroy this evil after his father is slain and his bride imprisoned in the Black Fortress. The plot progresses in a way reminiscent of a Dungeons and Dragons campaign.
Some intriguing oddities, like the use of driving bits (normally used in conjunction with carriage harness) on the riding horses, help to create an otherworldly feel through relative unfamiliarity. Medieval style weaponry and laser guns bring past and future together in an interesting combination. Symbolism involving the concepts of time and space is prominent and repeated in countless different forms.
Though i personally like this film a lot, it's not for everybody. The lack of character depth and not-so-great acting are major counts against it, so i highly recommend renting it at your local video store before buying it.

Unlike most reviewers here, I don't think Krull is as good as they say, let alone a classic. But the DVD quality and extras available on it make up for the film's shortcomings and really adds to the viewing experience. Another example of the DVD enhancing the actual film, beyond the obvious upgrade in video and audio. If you like this type of film, buy it. If you don't, a rental will do as it still makes for an enjoyable 'popcorn'-viewing experience.
A few notes on the film:
*visually, it's still impressive. From the psychadelic set pieces inside the beast's fortress, the design of the 'Slayers', the 'swamp' sequence(arguably the best scene in the film), the widow's lair, etc. Only the sparse-looking castle designs at the beginning look 'cheap'. The music is also rousing and memorable enough to draw you in.
*the film should be given an award for not having an annoying child actor or grating 'comic relief' actor mess up the film. Both of these characters work quite well. In fact, the secondary characters(bandits, old man, cyclops,etc) all come off better(more natural) than the primary leads. Don't believe me? Can you imagine anyone else playing Luke Skywalker? No. But I could easily imagine someone else playing the leads in Krull. Btw, Lysette Anthony CAN act. She just doesn't do it very well in this one.
*the film does a nice job(for the most part) of invoking a medieval yet far-off time and place, with its main weakness being the not-so-charismatic leads and not so great script.
*One thing really bothers me though, the special weapon 'Glaive' is rendered pointless at the end when the two of them discover it's their love(ugh) that can defeat the beast, not the glaive-that and shooting fire out of Colwyn's hand.

Format: DVD
Take the whiz-bang fantasy of films like the "Lord Of The Rings" trilogy, mix in two parts "Star Wars," and add a pinch of modest flicks like "Legend," and you have the perfect formula for "Krull." Though the cheese factor is quite high, Ken Marshall, Lysette Anthony, and friends make the best of this fantasy/sci-fi flick.

Ten times better than the schlock on SciFi Channel, "Krull" has a little something for everyone. There's a nasty bad guy(The Beast) who is intent on taking over the universe with his floating fortress and his army of Slayers. Standing in the way is the love of Prince Colwyn and Princess Lyssa, which is said to bring about a future universal ruler and one of the coolest toys in the world of fantasy....the Glaive! There's a band of rogues who help Colwyn along the way. This group features future "Darkman" and "Schindler's List" star, Liam Neeson and future "Harry Potter" good guy Robbie Coltrane. There's a little swordplay, a little magic, and a little deception(gotta love the shapeshifters).

The acting isn't the best in the world, and neither are the special effects, but the story is interesting enough to move the picture along. Others have accused this film of ripping off films like "Star Wars" and novels such as "The Lord Of The Rings" books, but keep in mind that all of these stories, and just about every flick ever made for that matter, have borrowed something from other stories. Also, the tale of a prince searching for his damsel-in-distress has been around since storytellers first told tales.

The extras on this DVD are pretty limited. I haven't listened to the commentaries, because I'm not a big fan of such things, but the "Journey To Krull" featurette is a nice addition, and the obligatory photo galleries, trailers, etc.

Krull Subtitles
This may or may not help, but Mill Creek's recent Blu-ray re-issue of LAST ACTION HERO has no subtitles (and only one audio option). In that case, I'm tempted to put the earlier Blu-ray edition in the new case because it features the film's amazing original poster art. In the case of KRULL,... Read More
